In the console world, we are constantly seeing the Sony PlayStation platform battle again the Microsoft Xbox platform for dominance. In some markets, the PlayStation has won, but in other markets, the Xbox platform has them beat. Unfortunately it looks like over in the US, Sony’s PlayStation 4 has managed to outsell the Xbox One for the fourth month in a row.
This is according to the NPD Group whose recent figures have proven that the PS4 has indeed sold more units compared to the Xbox One for the month of April in the US. This was a completely different tune with the Xbox 360 where the console managed to dominate the US market for more than a year.
As far as video games are concerned, the NPD Group has revealed that Titanfall is currently the best selling game at the moment. This is followed by Call of Duty: Ghosts, NBA 2K14, Minecraft, LEGO The Hobbit, The LEGO Movie Videogame, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Grand Theft Auto V, and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
However the NPD Group also states that software sales are something of a mixed signal, “New physical software is in a transition period as software for new consoles are doing well, but collectively not offsetting declines, leading to a 10 percent decline in software sales… PS4 software combined with Xbox One software sales are up over 40 percent compared to sales of the PS3 and Xbox 360 through their first six months. Wii U software sales were up over last year by over 80 percent.”
