PS4 outsells Xbox One in the US for tenth consecutive month
The PS4 was the best-selling console in the US in October, Sony has announced, drawing on the NPD Group’s monthly report.
The release of the NPD report today explains Microsoft’s decision to announce yesterday that it has almost shipped ten million Xbox One units – and that the recent $50 price cut has tripled the console’s sales, resulting in it taking the lead in eighth-gen console sales. So don’t soil your fanboy pants just yet.
The NPD took the time to celebrate both consoles which, after a year on sale, are tracking well ahead of the PS3 and Xbox 360.
“October 2014 marks the first 12 months of sales for the Xbox One and PS4; and after the first year, these consoles have had a great start as cumulative sales are currently over 70% higher than the combined first year totals of Xbox 360 and PS3,” the NPD Group’s Liam Callahan said.
“Hardware sales of eighth generation consoles represent close to 80% of dollar sales this month driving overall consoles sales to increase by 186% over October 2013.”
NBA 2K15 took the top spot among software sales, which is not much of a surprise given the franchise’s regular chart appearances.
The NPD said Sunset Overdrive would have charted in ninth place in a software top ten of individual SKUs, which certainly bodes well for the Xbox One. The Evil Within also set a record for highest first-month sales of a new horror IP. The top 10 is below.
  1. NBA 2K15 (PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
  2. Super Smash Bros. 3DS (3DS)
  3. The Evil Within (PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, PC)
  4. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
  5. Destiny (Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4, PS3)
  6. Skylanders Trap Team (Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U, PS3, Xbox One, PS4, 3DS, Mobile)
  7. FIFA 15 (PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, Wii, Vita, 3DS)
  8. Madden NFL 15 (Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Xbox One)
  9. Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  10. Minecraft (Xbox 360, PS3, PS4)
