Sony has done their magic yet again in the US as the PS4 has topped July 2014 NPD sales chart. This is the seventh consecutive month that the PS4 has done this and the momentum doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
While we don’t have the hardware figures yet they should be revealed very soon. The software side is surprising though as The Last of Us: Remastered has topped and has been projected to sell 1.5 million worldwide so far.
Earlier we had revealed that the PS4 had topped 10 million in sales globally, which is a huge achievement. PS4 games also accounted for half of the total next-generation sales.
“Typically, EA’s NCAA Football launches in July, and often ranks as the top game. As that title is no longer being produced, new launch sales declined steeply by close to 70 percent in July 2014,” said NPD’s Callahan.
“When combining life-to-date sales of Xbox One and PS4 after nine months, and comparing them to the combined totals of nine months of sales for Xbox 360 and PS3, sales of the newest consoles are larger than the prior generation by close to 80 percent.”
Nintendo has revealed that Mario Kart 8 has crossed 1 million in sales and they have moved 40 million 3DS software.
Microsoft’s PR seemed subdued and you can read it below:
Xbox One continues to sell at a strong and steady pace following the release of the $399 console in June, when month-to-month sales more than doubled.
We will keep you updated as soon as we receive all the numbers soon.
