Sony’s PlayStation 4 console has done very well ever since it was launched and it continues to do well, aided partly by new titles such as Marvel’s Spider-Man which may have driven people on the fence to purchase the new console. A new report from industry-tracking firm The NPD Group reveals that the PlayStation 4 was the best selling gaming console in the United States last month.
The report mentions that the new Spider-Man game was also the best-selling game in September. Sony had a bundle on offer in which the console was adorned with a limited edition Spider-Man inspired color scheme. There’s no doubt that it sold quite a few of those bundles.
“PlayStation 4 hardware achieved the highest September unit sell-through for a non plug-n-play console since the PS4 in 2014,” said NPD’s Mat Piscatella.
Sony has thus been able to extend the PS4’s lead this year even further. It’s already the best-selling console in the United States so far this year and September has been yet another good month for the console.
Microsoft’s Xbox One is doing well too. “Xbox One hardware dollar sales in September grew more than 30 percent when compared to a year ago and are now up more than 60 percent year to date,” Piscatella said.
