"The PlayStation 4 beat out all systems with 269,000 units sold. Xbox One came in second place having sold 197,000 units."

197,000 units isn't even close to the Xbox One's best month. Says alot considering all the hype that went into dropping Kinect. The Xbox One also would have been outsold by the Wii U (by alot) if they didn't remove Kinect. Which is crazy.

270,000 units is amazing for a system some people think has 'no games'. It should see a decent boost next month from the TLOU RE and should have ZERO problems holding down the US until at least November.

Lawboy21611d ago

Yeah but u got to admit that's actually not that bad....I think we should just concede that the playstation 4 is an amazing console and is highly likely to lead this generation in sales...that way maybe xbox fans can get back to enjoying there games and not be ridiculed for not selling as much as the ps4

NextLevel1611d ago (Edited 1611d ago )

If the Xbox One can maintain these numbers, it would be great, but I don't see any reason it would last. The Titanfall SKU boosted the Xbox One number to 311,000 in March, a few months later it was 115,000 and 77,000. Only time will tell though.

Lets be realistic here, new SKU and price drops cause sale spikes, the Xbox One numbers next month will probably be lower than 197,000.

This is no where near closing the gap. It did better the month before Titanfall.

January 2014…141,000
February 2014…258,000
March 2014…311,000
April 2014…115,000
May 2014…77,000

"xbox fans can get back to enjoying there games and not be ridiculed for not selling as much as the ps4"

Last gen the PS3 took heat for years until it over took the Xbox 360. This gen is just getting started.

psforward1611d ago

That may be the smartest thing I've ever read from an X-box1 supporter.

TFJWM1611d ago (Edited 1611d ago )

I agree with everything you said cept for the its not that bad. Xbox1 sold 5k more in the last two months then ps4 did in June, that is with all the pre orders for the unbundled SKU. There is no way that is the ''boost'' Microsoft was hoping for

k3rn3ll1611d ago

Considering how people keep raving that the ps4 is selling 2-1 on xbox, this is a great improvement. Dropping to 1.36-1 is pretty impressive . Especially considering no new games that month. And lets be honest, its not a pricedrop so people need to stop pretending it is one.

itBourne1611d ago


I mean it is a price drop, tons of people dont want to fork out and extra $100 for something they will not use.

Also Microsofts strongest market is NA, the situation is much worse in Europe. However, if a company is ran right, you do not need gang buster sales to be profitable, look at Nintendo.

I really am glad to see Sony do so well, mostly because so many amazing 1st party titles sold like ass last gen, maybe it will improve so we can continue to get those 1st party niche market titles.

Death1611d ago

Interestingly enough Sony said the Vita was sold out due to increased demand last month. According to the data sales are down 44.4% from last year for the month and 26% for the year.

Half way through the year and sales between the PS4 and Xbox One are 1.57 million vs 1.1 million. That doesn't really sound like as huge a differance as some want to believe. Another interesting fact is the average number of Xbox's soldhas been 76,666 less a month for the year. With the lower price due to Kinect being dropped the Xbox One sold 72,000 less. For it's first month, the lower price isn't the game changer some had hoped.

AngelicIceDiamond1611d ago

I agree and congrats to PS4 leading the sales while MS is second and even Nintendo clawing its way back.

I expect bigger numbers from all three going into the fall season.

Lightning Mr Bubbles1611d ago

I wish we would go back to getting the NPD sales figures every month like we use to. Why did they stop doing it in the first place?

BlackWolf121611d ago

Honestly, July is going to be a much more accurate indication of the sales trend.

June was always going to see a sales spike from all the people who were waiting for a Kinectless Xbox One. Those inflated numbers will see a gradual decline once again leading up to the end of the year.

Redgehammer1611d ago (Edited 1611d ago )

The 399 price did not go into effect until june 9th, so I'm interested to see if there is any difference in a full months report. Congrats to the industry as a whole, i love seeing a healthy report. Kudos to the PS4, as well; however, Sony and I will never exchange currency for hardware, ever again. Regardless of that, i recognize its impact on MS, and believe that needed lessons have been learned by the Xbox division. I look forward to owning a XO in the future, and am happy all tastes have an option, in which, to enjoy gaming. I just choose the XB platform for my family, and me.

A 400k,YTD14, difference is not a staggering amount IMO. Considering the backlash MS endured, and arguably wrought upon itself.

morganfell1611d ago (Edited 1611d ago )


Last gen the PS3 began to gain on the 360 from day one in worldwide sales. It started behind, and at launch it began to gain. And it won in it's home country.

With the X1 it began to fall behind from day one. It started behind, and at launch it began to fall further behind. And it is losing in it's home country.

The X1 is performing exactly opposite the PS3. People can let those comparisons go because this isn't last gen at all.


Thanks for proving me correct. But to answer your question. No, it will not make a differnce. Put that dream down and stop grasping at straws. The fact is the X1 Kinctless Sku peaked in the first week of it's launch and started to drop after that. The only reason X1 sales were as high as they were was because of the first week from June 9th through the 16th.

The Titanfall bundle has disappeared at many retailers and that was a source of sales for MS even outsewlling the KInectless Sku. The Kinectless Sku is selling worse than at any point to date so no, the extra 9 days will not make a difference. Let it go.

JorboTron1611d ago

I can't wait to see the medal ceremony when they place the gold medal on Sony's chest. /s

seriously guys lets just be happy that console are selling well across the board. even wii u is selling well. PS3 did not win anything for narrowly beating out 360 in a nail bitter last gen, if anything they lost about 60 million customers to MS from the previous gen, so depending on how you look at it who really won? Also because of that competition Sony came out swinging with the PS4 and we the gamers win. Competition is good. all platforms have pros and cons. everyone just play games and forget about the numbers, as long as it selling

DJustinUNCHAIND1611d ago

Xbox fans enjoy their games.

Maybe it's time Sony fans allow them to do that in peace.

Redgehammer1611d ago

It's folly to confuse being curious about a topic, with dreaming or grasping at straws. The demise of Xbox has been grossly overstated, here on N4G, but i know where I am, so it is just a matter of course.

SilentNegotiator1611d ago


So Xbox gamers can't enjoy Xbox if some people on the internet say that they don't like Xbox/MS?

NewMonday1611d ago (Edited 1611d ago )

so the PS4 is outselling the XB1 by a rate of 3-2 even after the price cut, next month the rate should go back to 2-1 in favor of the PS4.

the biggest challenge to the XB1 now is the revival of the WiiU, between the power of the PS4 and the unique games of the WiiU it will hard to establish a message for the X1.

1OddWorld1611d ago

@Lawboy2 - Why should we concede???

I am "Pro Gamer" just as much as the next guy, but this is Xbox fans getting a taste of their own medicine and rightfully so. Why should Sony fans be the bigger person and just let things go? I hope they are ridiculed for the rest of the generation.

I am an eye for an eye type of guy.

Yup. Xbox actually did pretty well.

slate911611d ago

Geeze, dude what is up with you. Like...why?? Lol

Sitdown1611d ago

I could be wrong, but I don't understand why you think TLOU will give the ps4 a nice little boost....and I say that as someone who plans on purchasing it, but I already own a ps4.

Boody-Bandit1611d ago (Edited 1611d ago )

Because TLOU is an AMAZING game. One of the most award winning games in history of gaming. That and take into account the polls that have shown that a fair amount of Wii and 360 supporters have jumped shipped to the PS4 early on. Most of them have not played TLOU.

How is it any different than MS only consumers thinking Halo 1-4 will move X1's? At least TLOU is remastered for this generation where as Halo isn't.

So yes. Without question Sony will see a bump in sales when the TLOU is released. I played it on the PS3 and I'm picking it up for the PS4. It's my favorite game from last gen and one of my all time favorite games. Uncharted 2 is my 2nd favorite game from last gen.

TLOU will definitely give Sony a little boost. Not that they need it since they've been out in front every month worldwide.

ChickenOfTheCaveMan1611d ago

The last 2-3 years of the last gen had a bunch of games coming out. My backlog was so big that I passed on TLOU.

I got a PS4 a week ago and now I'm waiting for the remastered version to come out. Since roughly 7 million out of 80 million users played it, I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one in that position.

Sitdown1610d ago (Edited 1610d ago )

The common theme in all of our post is?..... We are getting the game, but already have a ps4. So no bump from us. If out of 80 million only 7 million wanted to experience it... Why do we believe a sudden jump in graphics will cause people to by a ps4 to play a game they perhaps previously shunned? With regards to Halo.... It's Halo...a bonified system seller. If Halo did not have the history, I would make the same comment towards Xbox fans. Not saying it won't happen, but was just wondering.

ABizzel11611d ago

Congrats to all, those numbers were a lot higher than they should have been, so I guess they counted the last week of June (that entered July) as a full week which would have put each platform closer to the actual NPD numbers.

regardless Kudos to all, June was a great week for every platform.


Stop trolling......please ;(

you guyzzzzz, ha. so silly . .

if only gaming was about saLes . but its not.

Gaming is firstly all about gameplay, then the overall quality of the project.

Gaming is not about how much a product sold lol. too much sales figures round these parts.

Nintendo still in first, sony second, Sega in third, and micro innnn

Spotie1611d ago

A lot of good it does for a game to have great gameplay and am amazing story if it has zero sales. Likewise, it doesn't do a console much good to have a great library if nobody is buying the hardware.

johndoe112111611d ago

Did you think carefully about that statement before you wrote it?

Magnes1611d ago (Edited 1611d ago )

The console that leads in sales will drive the market. If you are a fan of a particular console and it's direction/vision it makes sense that you would root for it to lead in sales. Get off your soap box.

imt5581611d ago (Edited 1611d ago )

Nice, Sony, really nice.

Anyway, from MisterX :

ROFLMAO!!!! I can't believe it.

MisterX is the most delusional individual in gaming.

GW2121611d ago

I would love to meet this guy in person. I won't be traveling to eastern Europe to do it but I'd love to see what kind of person he is in real life.

I'm guessing he probably does this as some joke or is literally paid by MS to do it. Good gig if you can get it. Imagine that your job is to just literally make things up. Sources? Whatever, make 'em up. Let's make up some tech terms today. Let's take logic, put it in a box, lock the box up, and just type.

ShwankyShpanky1611d ago (Edited 1611d ago )

One could easily be forgiven for not realizing that that is a spoof Twitter account, given how outlandish X can be.

That spoof account is pretty amusing, though.

One of the below is a real MisterX tweet, the others are from the spoof. Can you spot the real one? (meh, it's not too hard to do... I picked some of the funniest parody tweets)

"i threw a dart at the dartboard and now stacked ram is my new hot secret truthicle! Xbox One has stacked ram, my for real insider to comment"

"no I am not FUD! you are FUD! stupid liars try to do provings me of the wrong, cannot be done my truthicles are solid!"

"Nothing about #neogaf is legit. Gaming forum is front group for whoever ponies up the most cash, OT is socialist propaganda"

"PS4 dark secret: real life GDDR5 bandwidth is 135GB/s. Not peak 176 GB/s as they PR. Ponys making suicide, my russian boner is 4 cm bigs!"

"Insider Daily. 12.4 teraflops is confirmed! Visit my page for truthicles and pictures of randomness with nonsensical red lines drawn on them"
(note: the above pic is the spoof account's avatar, not my own editorial)

Darkstares1611d ago

Vita sold just 15k, i'm not so sure I would say nice job unless we are only focusing on the PS4. Which of course is a nice job.

Anon19741610d ago (Edited 1610d ago )

Bear in mind though that the Vita is limited in supply (for whatever reason). The fact they've been hard to find for weeks in the US will no doubt take a toll. Not that it was doing fantastic in the US or anything before that, which is a shame. It's a tremendous console.

One serious question to NextLevel. Do you even play games ?
You seem to be at N4G the whole day. I don't think you have time for anything else. Hope at least that Sony pays you well.

As for June 2014 NPD, it seems to be good numbers all around, except for the Vita. Very good numbers for the PS4 and the X1 got better numbers then I thought. Congrats to everyone.

r2oB1611d ago

Perhaps he posts all day while at work. Or school. Or maybe he is able to multitask while gaming. You don't think that's an ability exclusive to the Xbox One with the snap feature, do you?

Quanicus1611d ago

These conversations are hilarious. Xbox One hasn't been release in all their markets. Xbox STILL has approximately 23 markets to release their console in. That being the case 197K isn't that bad.

jnemesh1611d ago

No, what is hilarious is that people like you still seem to think that "Tier 2" countries are going to make a significant impact in global sales!

Remember, these countries COMBINED contributed less than 10% of global sales with the Xbox 360. If you are expecting these countries to make up the difference in sales between the PS4 and Xbox One, you are going to be in for a rude awakening! COMBINED they won't even make up the difference in sales in North America, let alone the rest of the world!

It's high time that Xbox fans accept the reality that their console is not the #1 console this gen, and will NEVER be the #1 console! The denial is getting pretty damn ridiculous at this point!

GW2121611d ago

Right... because the US or UK and the People's Democratic Republic of WhereEverTheHell carry the same target market weighting. Good call.

SmielmaN1611d ago

NDP is North American sales

Xbox released in countries that they targeted as their strongest sellers

Stop this lame excuse about xbone not being released in all areas. It wouldn't make any significant dent (especially the ones where ps4 has been available as ppl probably purchased that console). As a added bonus for you, MS not releasing their product in all territories is their decision. So they chose, as a business strategy, to not release in those territories.

On topic: great for Sony, again. I honestly thought xbone would either take or tie this month in NA with the huge $100 drop. Also, go Nintendo!

Where's trufan and Tbone???? I mean, they were talking a lot of trash leading up to this NDP release?

oSHINSAo1611d ago

Just remember... PS4 is in 72 Countries while Xone is in 13...

PS4 7 Million / 72 countries = 97,222 Ave per Country

Xone 5 Millions / 13 Countries = 384,615 Ave per country

While, PS4 wins in USA, is not the same case for other regions, there are other places were Xone sales better than ps4, so, lets just wait for September when xone will release in 26 more countries i guess, 100,000 sales each, and will catch up ps4, with 39 (vs 72 countries)

BlackTar1871611d ago

lol you're using a math average for areas that in a 8 yr cycle never even sold 384k systems.

koston36471611d ago

I know you probably think that all makes perfect sense in your head....

but jeez man, just cause you throw out a number and divide it evenly doesnt mean shit....

Chevalier1611d ago

Your calculation assumes that every country gets the same amount, except the main 13 countries represent the lions share of sales. Where are Xbone sales better than PS4?! They are losing in ALL 13 countries. Also don't forget that when PS4 launched in 2 countries they sold 1 million whereas Xbone only got 1 million from launching in 13 simultaneously.

SmielmaN1611d ago

You just proved how small a difference releasing in many more territories has on overall sales. The main markets are NA, UK, the rest of Europe, and japan. Why don't you show us your math skills and divided what amount of consoles have been sold in those territories.

poor_cus_of_games1611d ago

In what countries is the xbox outselling the ps4? Please tell me.

Boody-Bandit1611d ago (Edited 1611d ago )


You spin me right round baby right round like a record player right round round round.

On topic and with that out of the way:

The PS4 is well over 9 million sold to consumer and the XBOX ONE is 5 million. Get your facts straight. Sony is out selling MS with limit supplies in the regions MS significantly outperformed Sony last gen. That is why MS is in limited regions because they over stocked the areas they did best in last gen and were still out sold by Sony that couldn't keep PS4's in stock the 1st few months.

You could walk into any store in NA a month after the X1 launched and walked out with an XBOX ONE. With the PS4 it was have a dozen windows open and constantly hitting refresh hoping you could score one.

If Sony took MS's approach / strategy and limited their quantity of units while focusing primarily on the top selling regions they would be even further out in front of MS in those regions MS once dominated.

ThanatosDMC1611d ago

Wow, that was the most intelligent comment ever on ng4 and it's even backed up with math.

DarXyde1611d ago (Edited 1611d ago )

Except the countries have varying sales trends and aren't normalized, aka calculating a mean is useless. Proof of the fallacy of this assessment is in the fact that Xbox One has sold less to date in most of the regions both consoles are available in. Likewise, Sony's resources are split between more regions with shocking sales differences. Sales are not normally distributed for Playstation 4, given the area, considering the differences in region size. If, say, Xbox One sold a million more units tomorrow with 29 more countries, that would hurt their average considerably. Gamers per region are not normally distributed, nor are the populations comparable. Pretty bad example on your part.

Basic statistics, mate. I'm not knocking Xbox One, but I thought you should know that the comparison you're making is, frankly, garbage.

Arkardo1611d ago

raymantalk11611d ago

i think MS will drop the price of the xbox1 again before xmas or offer a $200 vouchers towards games as anyone with a brain wont buy a low spec console without something to sweeten the pot SONY will keep there console same price as it will sell anyway.

ps expect MS to give away loads of xbox1's as well so they can get more into homes to try and make peeps think it is selling well.

here comes the disagrees from xbox fanboys roflmao

mediate-this1611d ago

Oh my goodness, they are both selling good, whats your problem? 72k difference. You incure a battle between this fake ass console war. They both are doing good, ps4 doing super good.

Your try gard tactics are lame broski.

Redgehammer1611d ago

Honestly, tbe only people ive seen call it over hype, are people whose posts suggest they have no plans to get it, in the first place. Also , people that just like to denigrate the Xbox, and it's fans, also qualify.

morganfell1611d ago

Truefan, er, Redgehammer, he is right. If you are monitoring actual preorders the game isn't even a blip on the radar.

It could pick up between now and then but it does change how it is performing at this moment versus other titles that are launching even farther out.

MysticStrummer1611d ago

So XB1 did double May's numbers and then some. Still not great, considering May was so low, but not as bad as I thought after seeing MS's tweet that they weren't sure about doubling.

Ausbo1611d ago

Good sales numbers for all. Surprised the wiiu is selling this well. I guess Mario kart helped out quite a bit. But I think the Wii u is destined for last place.

my predictions:
1.) ps4----100 million
2.) xbox--- 80 million
3.) wiiu--- 45 million
