I'm interested to see how June's numbers come out and if the PS4 can keep up it's domination. MSFT is banking on the $399 SKU doing well but I for one still haven't seen anything that I want on Xbone that I can't play on the PS4 or PC. Have no interest in Halo either unless they gave the whole collection free to XBL subscribers.

@bonebone,

I seem to recall the wiiu having relatively little games until this month. And, contrary to fanboy belief, there is a great selection of games on ps4. More than it's biggest competitor's library.

Don't get me wrong, love my wind waker wiiu, but I hold no delusions that it struggled.

Only took the Wii U almost 2yrs to get a game that sells though.. and don't worry BoneBone, the Wii U will be back where it usually is come the July NPD.

Mario Kart 8 (great game that it is) simply won't move the kind of units like yesteryear.

What's coming out between July and December though?
AndrewLB  +   134d ago
Where exactly did NPD say PS4 sold more than xbone and wii-u combined? Or any actual sales numbers?

NPD are professionals and don't release crap like... "- 200k > PS4 > 100k > XBO > Wii U > 360 > 50k > PS3 > Wii"

The source linked in this post is gamingeverything.com which then links to neogaf.com who then links to gamesindustry.biz and they have no mention of console sales numbers other than...

"NPD noted that Sony's PS4 was the top selling console for the fifth month in a row, and while "much of May 2014's hardware growth was due to Xbox One and PS4, there was also year-over-year growth for the Wii U, and PS Vita,” said NPD analyst Liam Callahan, who pointed to the successful bundles for Mario Kart 8 on Wii U and Borderlands 2 for the PS Vita."

Soo.... does anyone have actual numbers?

Even though I bought a PS4 over Xbox One doesn't mean I support one over the other. This Xbox hate is disgusting and immature as hell. Not only did Phil Spencer right a wronged ship, but you Sony fanboys are oblivious to any logic or reason because of biased ideals. Not only did Sony disappoint at E3 this year, but you idiots ragged MS for TV on consoles and Kinect, but you gave Sony a pass at their push on the PS Camera and Sony TV at the conference. Kind of the same way you did when Sony started charging for playing games online like Microsoft. You fools clapped when Sony announced YouTube was coming to PSN when MS had this 4 years ago. How moronic is that? What a bunch of hypocrites.

NPD never delivered any "official" Vita sales last month. NeoGAF frequently allowed the posting Thuway topics who has now been proven to be a fraud, and CBOAT topics, who is right less than 50% of the time.

Creamsugar is full of it and I know this for certain.

And NeoGAF has no credibility and are now being shunned by the industry...except for Sony who gave them a shout out at their E3 press conference. Gee, I wonder why?

I actually saw the post. It was Larry Hryb who gave them the offer. It was basically bait. Larry knows NeoGAF is a Sony PR site, and that was proven during Sony's E3 presentation. Funny stuff. They wanted to give props to a forum but instead destroyed their credibility by confirming what we already knew.

Now I have to post a disclaimer... I love Sony products and hate Sony PR. In the past year I bought another PS3 (third), a PS4, a Sony TV and a Sony camera. I just like being blunt, truthful and ruffling fanboy feathers. Somebody has to do it.

Yeah, of course. Sony throwing a shout out from E3 is proof of evil intent and a Sony/Gaf conspiracy, but MS inviting Gaf to E3 as their guests is a sly ploy to prove Gaf is biased, according to MultiConsoleGamer. The pretzel logic, delusions, and confirmation bias is amazing.

"I just like being blunt, truthful and ruffling fanboy feathers."

Making stuff up isn't being blunt or truthful, though it will ruffle fanboy feathers at times.

"NeoGAF is a Sony PR site, and that was proven during Sony's E3 presentation."

I guess Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit are all part of Sony's PR machine too…? They were mentioned in the same sentence as NeoGAF, after all.

What's been proven is that your tinfoil hat needs adjustment.

For one who likes to revel in debunking conspiracies and PR, reading some of your comments leads me to believe you've concocted some of your own. Kinda ironic in a way. lol. You say not to trust Neogaf or Sony PR yet you are but a mere poster on 'n4g'. Who to believe, decisions, decisions.

You believing the SonyGAF thing to the height of 100% certainty is also kinda hilarious and gives off some janky MisterX vibes.

@ pyramidshead "You say not to trust Neogaf or Sony PR yet you are but a mere poster on 'n4g'. Who to believe, decisions, decisions".

Does that mean that we should believe only what "Big Brother" tells us to believe or do and not what we think is correct merely because we are a meager citizen. You are basically saying that just because someone is a lowly poster on a forum that they must be wrong and someone with a personal agenda and the money to back it must be right. Ever heard of Watergate? Ever heard of the Holocaust?

An individual can be correct and still be a small whisper in a crowd of screamers. So instead of writing off what someone says because they are a mere poster on a forum, wait for an official report from the credible manufacturer themselves rather than a third party site that lists no real credible sources on their report.

The biggest thing to take from this, cross gen games are killing it on next gen. Take note publishers. Don't hold your game back because you don't want to ignore that huge userbase. People are buying on next gen, this gen went at least a year too long and we are buying with or wallets.
InTheLab  +   135d ago
I feel like people who went out to buy new consoles are more than willing to go out and buy new games for them versus the people who have an entire library of old games to sift through. Seems like common sense really but of course publishers only see the install base.
rainslacker  +   135d ago
I think a lot of people waited for next gen. Cross-gen is a given in the last year of a consoles life, and the first year of a new one. Some people just don't invest in the older console anymore either through becoming bored with it, or just wanting a better experience down the road.

All I know is that there is still a lot of games coming out for PS3 this year, and at least early into next. My backlog will never go away.:(
soandsoz  +   135d ago
I think the industry has known for quite some time that the 'hardest' of the hardcore gamers are individuals whom are day 1 buyers of both hardware and software. Likely the same subset of gamers whom preordered a new generation console are the same who purchase new games day one or have preordered.

I believe that is the primary reason Next gen sales are often higher for the first month of a multiplat game(s).

Give me indies,3rd,and 1st parties titles on my system and I will have plenty of games too play while they wait..
IrishSt0ner  +   135d ago
Maths helps. Xbox has sold roughly 62% the number of consoles of PS4. PS4 sold 575000 copies, Xbox sold 362500 copies... so Xbox sells 63% the number of Watch_dogs copies as the PS4. It's entirely proportional.

Using a highly anticipated multiplatform game, sold equally in porportion to console numbers, as a means to disprove the fact that Xbox has a marginally higher game uptake is laughable.

Good to see Watch Dogs doing so well. I have yet to actually buy it myself though. Just can't afford it yet but I will be getting it soon. I really cannot wait for Destiny though and if Watch Dogs sold that much better on PS4 over XBOX One then the numbers for Destiny will most likely show an even larger gap since all the advertising is being done for the PS4 version. It also should help the PS4 sales because of the Destiny bundle and I wouldn't be surprised if Destiny is the big must have game for this holiday over even COD.
isa_scout  +   135d ago
After playing the Alpha I couldn't agree with you more.... I certainly know I'll be picking up Destiny over any other FPS coming out this year. In fact after playing the Alpha I wonder to myself if it is even possible for games like COD to stay relevant anymore. Destiny feels like the future of FPS.
Jeff257  +   135d ago
I think companies really will have to start rethinking how they handle MP and SP in FPS games. I know many skip the SP in COD and do nothing but MP all the time. For me that got old after awhile. With Destiny I love how everything is so mixed together. If you want to go off on your own you can, want to do some great Co-Op you can do that too, and then if you want PvP that is there but it also can help you unlock higher ranks and other loot you can use back in the other parts of the game. That to me is a great way to make sure people invest time in every aspect of the game and really gives people good value for their money.

Why not try the game out before you make a judgement on it? I too didn't think much of it when I first saw it being shown. The concept intrigued me but I was kind of tired of FPS so it wasn't something I thought I would be into. After having played just the little bit they gave us in the Alpha I can say I enjoyed every second I was playing it. I cannot wait for the full game to come out because I know I will be playing every single bit of it. Even the PvP stuff has me wanting to play more.

As for the micro transactions. Bungie already stated they want to give everyone the same full experience for the price of the game and won't be doing the Pay For Power bull other companies do to their games.

When game consoles don't do well, it's not your rival losing out, it's the gaming community losing out.
slivery  +   135d ago
I'll explain why and why I care about sales. You literally just said it yourself.

"When game consoles don't do well, it's not your rival losing out, it's the gaming community losing out."

When a console sells more, that leads to more developer interest and support, it also just leads to a more secure future for that said console.

If I bought something for "X" amount of money that ended up never selling anything and it just gets discontinued shortly after, it matters then. Basically money wasted on something that didn't even last, so the better something sells that you yourself invested money in, is always a good thing.

I mean you are free to not care but I care about the future of the products I spend my money on. I buy them specifically for that future, consoles in general are always bought with the prospect of their future offerings in mind.
T2  +   135d ago
exactly right, i can't believe you had to explain this. anyone who doesn't get this is being willfully ignorant.

mcarsehat  +   134d ago
I only own a ps4 now, but you obviously know everything about me.
so, in a way, the people that DON'T buy a PS4 deserve to lose out if the console fails?

Isn't it ironic that fanboys love using the word fanboy?

Got two answers from two people who are willfully ignorant of the rest of the gaming community but if one console does well, the entire industry does well (I've run out of sarcasm)

He said the Xbox forfeited May NPD to Playstation in result of the unbundling of the Kinect (So you're not even gonna put up a fight? You're gonna lay there and take it??) ...That June will be where Xbox catches up to playstation, or so he hopes.

Still doesn't make up for the fact he XboxOne sold the worst in May than the Xbox360 ever has in history.

It does make sense, but catching up to PS4? I don't think so. It could happen that they sell more in June since this is a price drop and anytime there is a price drop sales spike...

For me, Xbox was not an option simply because of the price and performance gap. Now it's just a performance gap...but I'm informed and know about it. Most consumers chose with their wallets and starting in June they're the same price (in Canada it's 50$ cheaper than PS4). This is all fact.

just go check out amazon... the 399 bundle is not even top selling... and rightfully so the titanfall bundle was much better value... this is a desperate move to grab people with little money, and it's not going to hold them over all summer long.

So, the gap between PS4 and XB1 is now 0.6M in US. not bad, not bad.

Once all these incoming games hit the market, PS4 will be selling even more than this.. Then E3 will come around again with MORE GREATNESS!

Im really glad that Sony is moving units like this.. Not because im a fan, but because they will improve servers & release so many great games from indie & AAA companies

Really surprised people bought the Borderlands Vita bundle, I mean I knew people would but not that many, didn't think it would do much. Good to see the Vita picking up sales outside of Japan for once.

Hopefully both the Wii U and PS Vita can continue this stride, maybe not exceptionally amazing sales but way better than they have been doing that is for sure.

Well considering Microsoft announced a $399 version it pretty deflated sales for may,but you can expect a boost and also what are sales when you have no games??? Infamous and driveclub is all you give your fans? Next year the order and uncharted?? The ps4 will get a reality check this winter.

I will take it with a grain of salt the "creamsugar" leak.

Probably true about console sales. Cats are waiting for the Kinect-less non-bundle @399.
