Square Enix launched the Crystal Dynamics-developed Tomb Raider reboot worldwide one month ago. Widely acclaimed as a breath of fresh air for the franchise, fans have been flocking to the action-adventure platforming title.

The company has reported over 3.4 million copies of the game were sold since launch! 😮

Here’s the Tomb Raider TV commercial starring none other than Lara Croft.

To recap the top games per system:

  • Luigi’s Mansion 2: Dark Moon jumps to numero uno on the 3DS chart.
  • BioShock Infinite stays atop the Xbox 360 charts.
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops II returns on the PS3 charts.
  • Just Dance 4 rocks the 1st place on the Wii chart.
  • Tomb Raider 2013 returns on first place on the PC chart.
  • Pokemon Black & White Version 2 get caught at #1 on the DS chart.
  • Arkham City: Armored Edition makes a comeback on the Wii U charts.
  • Need for Speed: Most Wanted races back on the PS Vita chart.
  • Lastly, SimCity 2013 reappears as #1 on the Mac chart.

Since last month PS2 & PSP game sales are no longer being tracked. But for years now 90% of the time they consisted out of all the Kingdom Hearts games appearing on the #1 spot on both classic PlayStation platforms, so it’s not like you’re missing out with no new games being released for them anymore.
