PS4 leads US console sales for seventh month running

11 posts in this topic

PlayStation 4 has celebrated a seventh straight month atop the US home console chart, numbers company NPD has reported.

Sony's console wasn't only the best-selling machine in July, it was also the home to the best-selling game - The Last of Us.

PlayStation 4 has now sold 10m consoles worldwide, Sony announced this week. Recent numbers for Microsoft's Xbox One are more illusive.

Responding to the NPD results, Microsoft simply stated that Xbox One was selling "strong and steady", with a continued momentum from June's launch of the Kinect-less $399 bundle (thanks, VentureBeat). That bundle offering caused Xbox One numbers to double month-on-month from May - but not high enough to dislodge PS4.

Combined sales of the PS4 and Xbox One after nine months on sale are now almost 80 per cent higher than those for the PS3 and Xbox 360 over the same time period, NPD also noted.

Meanwhile, Nintendo celebrated Mario Kart selling 1m copies in the US - the second to do so after New Super Mario Bros. U.

Minecraft was the second-best selling game in July, followed by FIFA 14, Watch Dogs, Mario Kart 8, COD: Ghosts, GTA 5, Sniper Elite 3, NBA 2K14 and Lego Marvel Super Heroes.

The train keeps right on going.

 

There are some strong games coming this fall, so I expect the trend to continue.

I'm sure this'll change when the games start rolling out later this year. :)

PS4 187k Xbox One 131k

where you get those numbers from? and it's still not by much that PS4 beats the X1.

Probably NeoGAF, sometimes people in the know leak the numbers there.

Its still quite a gap given this is the XB1s first month of the price drop.

Good momentum in these consoles, they're smashing previous consoles sales figures.

Over all these months now the PS4 has gained a pretty nice market share bump compared to the X1. Especially outside of the US where the PS4 comparatively sells even better.

Sony needed a winner and it seems they've found one.
