Xbox One vs. PS4 vs. Wii U
This generation’s console war has been in full swing for almost nine months, and the trajectory seemed clear from early on: Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One were clobbering Nintendo’s Wii U just about every month. But lately, the tides have started to turn. We now have July’s sales numbers, and the shifting pattern seems to be continuing, which means things are getting more and more interesting.
The total console sales for July are as follows: The Xbox One sold 286,534 units, the Wii U sold 302,076, and the PS4 sold 671,269. Taken together with the last two months’ sales, it’s clear that the Wii U is coming back strong against the Xbox One. However, the PS4 continues to look pretty unstoppable.
On the software side of things, the 3DS remains king among the current generation of hardware, selling just over 4 million games in July. The PS4 comes in second, with about 2 million in software sales, followed by the Xbox One at a distant 10th, with 730,511 game sales. The PS3 and Xbox 360 also moved a lot of games, selling 4 million and 3 million, respectively
The Wii U is showing a lot of fight for a console many had written off just a few months ago. It beat the Xbox One in July by about 15,000 units and remains ahead of it in total sales by nearly 2 million
To give a brief run down on what is happening sales wise, The PS4 remains unstoppable with a huge lead in regards to console sales, Xbox One was doing well initially but it is currently being beat by the Wii U.
