For quite a while now Microsoft’s Xbox 360 has been holding the number one position in the US in terms of sales, but it looks like after a 32-month long streak, Sony has finally broken Microsoft’s streak and now claims the best-selling console in the US for the month of September. This is according to the latest figures released by NPD. According to NPD analyst (via Gamesindustry.biz), Liam Callahan, one of the reasons why Sony managed to break Microsoft’s stranglehold was due in part to Rockstar’s recently released Grand Theft Auto 5’s PlayStation 3 bundle. Granted that the game was released on both consoles, we guess the bundle made the purchase a little more attractive for gamers who wanted to play the game but did not own a console.
Presumably some of these gamers are PC gamers who were hoping for the game to see a release on the PC, but as it stands Rockstar has no plans to release the game for the PC platform. In any case what do you guys think? Will Sony be able to hold onto the crown for long? Or will the Xbox 360 reclaim their former spot next month? With the PS4 and Xbox One coming it, it will be interesting to see who comes out on top then!
