Dead Space 3, which launched February 4, sold 605,000 units in the United States during February, according to NPD data provided to GameSpot today. The action horror title was the best-selling game in the US during the month, knocking Call of Duty: Black Ops II from the top spot for the first time since launch.
In addition, NPD data reveals Crysis 3 sold 260,000 units in the US during the month. Notably, Crysis 3 launched February 19, meaning it reached that sales figure in 12 days. The NPD's February reporting period was February 2 to March 3, 2013.
Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli previously remarked that Crysis 3 is "so far, our masterpiece." He claimed the game is technically and creatively superior to past entries, but said the project took a critical hit compared to past entries due to gamer "fatigue," among other things.
