Hardcore Gamer: Sony has just issue a statement from the July NPD report.
#1 in console sales #1 in game sales Dat Sony domination 7 months down 5 months to go!
The highlight to me from the results is "PlayStation 4 games accounted for more than half of total next generation software sales.".
PS4 is in a league of it's own, Sony deserves all the success they achieved
@Zones: So what you're trying to say is--- Square Enix made a huge mistake. :P
Granted the last of us would have helped that but that is insanely impressive
We'd be foolish to think otherwise in hardware sales, PS4 has approx a 4-5 mill lead on X1 and 3-4 from Wii U that isn't going to shrink to nothin anytime soon.
Keep in mind that tlou is number one with only a last few days of count. That's very impressive.
June Results PS4 - 269K XB1 - 197k 3DS - 152k Wii U - 140k 360 - 62k PS3 - 42k
It's ridiculous how much and how consistently the PS4 is dominating. I genuinely thought things would start to even out once the X1 got that $100 price drop, but nope. And TLoU is number one for the entire month of July, despite only a few days worth of sales being counted? As I said, it's ridiculous.
Got a source for that Eonjay? Impressive if true. Not to sound like a broken record but this answers the question some were asking about whether anyone wanted a PS4 version of one of the best games ever made.
@Bathyj: Those are June numbers, this is July NPD. MS said this: “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,” a Microsoft spokesperson told GamesBeat. “We continued to see this momentum in July.” If they mean to say that they sold around 200K like in June, then we know that the PS4 sold somewhere above that, we just don't know the specifics.
i was just about to post the same thing. Its crazy that more than half is just on ps4 alone. And to think Tomb Raider was made a timed exclusive for what?
I am surprised last of us did so well. However, not surprised that ps4 is in the lead. Microsoft needs to do something new to close the gap. Titanfall hasn't worked and neither had 100 dolls price drop. Gamers just dnt view Xbox one weaker system as a better value than ps4. I believe xbox must drop to about 350 to compensate for the weaker system
For a system with "no games", it's selling a lot of them.
From NeoGAF: "Originally Posted by creamsugar: Xbox family < PS4" It alone is outselling the whole Xbox family in it's strongest market. Dat domination. XD
Aint no stopping this train. http://www.google.co.uk/img...
I thought PS4 would be boosted more by Last of Us remaster. Wii U is doing surprisingly good and bad at the same time. I am surprised it is that high, but it is in third place. MS is right in the middle in their strongest territory, so they need to bring the guns out.
What's it really all about, huh? Software sales. XBox had sold more last gen, but by a small margin. So don't call it a comeback...! Kazuo said knock you out.
Congrats to Sony on all of the PS4's well deserved early success. While certain members of the gaming community keep looking for the next excuse to hype up their console and bash the PS4....real gamers all over the world continue to look past all the corporate PR spin and speak with their wallets.
That number will continue to increase when Destiny and the PS4 Bundle come out in September.
@trenso "And to think Tomb Raider was made a timed exclusive for what?" A truck load of money. https://www.youtube.com/wat... On topic: The gap is widening worldwide every week. TLOU:Remastered was released 7/29. I know that game alone will give the PS4 a decent boost in most regions that will show up on the next NPD and other media charts. When Destiny hits I'm expecting Sony to have another significant boost with their bundle deal. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if Sony out sells MS by 2 to 1 in NA. This just goes to show what a poor decision SE and Crystal Dynamics made with the Rise of TR. By the time that game hit retails Sony could possibly have a 3 to 1 lead over MS and PS fans will be more apt to buy UC4 and TLOU2. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if a significant amount of PS4 consumers snub their nose at Rise:TR. I played it on both the X1 and PS4 and to me it's not a game you purchase a system to play. I just hope the money MS paid will offset the loss SE will see from disgruntled PC and Sony fans.
Please wait until November come.
Yea, if they don't do it then they never will.
@BitbyDeath They can again when Halo 5 comes out, or GOW 4 and etc... @OrangePowerz Halo MCC mainly, but Sunset Overdrive can help due to it coming out at the end of October leading into November. @Chevalier I clearly said wait until November, not September. Titanfall was on PC and 360. These games are only on the Xbox One. Oh and since you're bringing up Amazon sales, Halo MCC been in the top 20 and higher for months (not anymore tho) and is still in the top for best selling games on Gamestop.
Titanfall did next to nothing. The COD and SSO bundles have already dropped on the charts at amazon.com so not sure how it'll help, but, I'm guessing with Destiny bundles and being the most preordered game of all time along with the vast majority on PS4 I'd like to see if those 2 titles you suggest help any.
@station Sure, since you asked nicely. And then we'll wait for halo5, then we'll wait for next November and for gears then next November. Is that cool with you? ;)
The thing is this is only NPD, and when you add WW numbers into the equation the gap between the two is vastly different. @XStation I don't think even Halo: MCC will help them, the PS4 has been outselling the XBO by a good margin with pretty much the same library of games (excluding exclusives of course). November also has Far Cry 4, Dragon Age, probably Assassin's Creed Unity, and Little Big Planet 3 for PS4, as well as the holiday boost season. I don't think simply having Halo: MCC is going to be enough to push it pass the PS4, but I agree it should be a really close match; however, is winning 1 month out of a year really a win, and looking at WW numbers is even worse. MS needs to have their full WW launch (which should help in EU at least), and starting 2015 they need to have a price drop to $349 during tax season in the US, and scoop up that money. They're not going to outsell the PS4 consistently without some drastic changes ($199 XBO through cable subscriptions), so they need to focus on having strategic wins such, full WW launch by holiday 2014, tax season price cut $349, amazing holiday bundles for 2015 (Halo 5 + Halo: MCC bundle + Gears of War Beta, Forza Horizon 2 + Forza 6 bundle). These are the kind of battles they need to use to make their way to second place, and to offer value so in the eyes of consumers the XBO is should be the second console people pick up, and not the Wii U. They need stealth wins.
Even if the MCC somehow made Xbox win in sales for November, THATS JUST ONE MONTH. Ps4 has been consistently outselling Xbox for over half a year now in the US, one month of Xbox victory will NOT turn that around.
@bigboss The 360 outsold the PS3 for 32 consecutive months on NPD. One year ain't got anything on that record. On topic, congrats sony, but it does seem as if the NA gap is slowly closing
i hope to god your precious MCC helps X1 win november or december or both, cause it will just be embarrassing if it doesn't move enough consoles to out sell the ps4.
@xstation sure halo mcc is doing well but XB1 isn't doing so hot, and I imagine that a lot of people getting halo mcc already have XB1s... Oh and Sunset Overdrive isn't doing so great, and I don't really see that as a system seller...
The fact we're even debating this regarding how well it sells on it's home turf, speaks volumes. We can clearly see the Xbone is drowning. And even if it does manage to come up for one last breath of air in November, after that it'll be pulled down in the undercurrent, likely never to surface again.
Lol I just have to laugh at Xbox fans sometimes. How is being outsold every month closing the gap? When the numbers are close the gap just doesn't open as wide, it still opens though. Simple math, heck it's common sense.
We've been hearing "Wait until _____insert next big thing here____" since the reveal of the system. I will concede that it's too early to call a winner, but if PS is dominating despite so many claiming it has no games, then what is the point in expecting MS to do better if they already have games and according to some better game incoming at a later date, and it still can't sell better than the PS4?
@XStation, you are clutching at straws. If Titanfall, the most hyped game ever couldn't do, it what hope has Sunset Overdrive got. Pretty much none.
@kribwalker for the gap to close XB1 has to out sell the PS4... If PS4 sells 50,000 more consoles the gap grew by 50,000. These gap closing comments need to stop until XB1 actually out sells the PS4.
ok i will! but you better be here come november. I might wanna have a word with you.
"First console to reach 10 million units wins the generation battle" Said by Don Mattrick himself!
Wait until E3. Wait until Titanfall. Wait until pricecut. Wait until Gamescon. Just stop. Microsoft screwed up big time. They're not going to recover from that PR blunder.
Wow, the hatred is strong in this topic. All the guy was saying was wait until some of MS big hitters come out. Sunset Overdrive and Halo will sell systems. PS has TLOU right now to help sales, while X1 has......nothing. Neither system right now really has a slew of games to help sell. Be interested to see from Oct - Dec how sales go as more exclusives for each console come out. But geez, no need to jump all over this dude because he didn't praise Sony. You guys are so defensive, relax.
^ Sunset Overdrive isn't going to move consoles and anyone who enjoys Halo will be the ones buying it. What Microsoft needs are blockbusters, not rehashed franchises.
Why? Because you think xb1 will win November? And if it wins is that somehow making up for the by thAn 10 months in a row it lost? Or do you fool heartedly believe that MS will just start to dominate sales around the world and erase the Sony lead.
Who gonna stop the PS4 train Not you Not you Not you and damnnnnnnnn Sure Not You ಠ_ಠ yeah you know who you are >:D stop looking at my damn comment.
Good. Everyone is happy :) Congrats to everyone.
I really hope Sony surpasses Xbox 360s streak of consecutive months with the most sales with PS4.
Oh dear guy. Ps is more popular, that is all. Doesn't mean it's the best I listen to completely different music, my taste is alternative, yours is popular. Does that mean yours is better? Nope Just more popular As long as xbox is still a great experience and continue as they have done since last year, I'll continue being a satisfied customer.
PS4 is more not only popular but it is also the best. better graphics, more powerful, more exclusives, third party ports look better, better controller, PS plus, remote play and so much more. unless your addicted to Halo which is past its sell by date anyway and is yesterdays news that you would be a fool to buy an Xbox One instead of a PS4.
Xbox is not a great experience. worse controller to the 360, worse everything and all of its best games are on the PS4 or sooner or later will be released on PS4.
What...It cant be popular and better? Maybe people are buying a ps4 because is the better buy, dont you think? I'm sure they aren't forcing themselves to buy a ps4.
We'll see if they're singing the same song when Rise of the Tomb Raider releases.
You realize that's a year and a half away... AND Uc4 will be launching around the same time
wut? sometimes you really shouldn't comment on all your submitted pieces. OT - @MightyNoX That's some domination right there. Also no Xbox PR for the fourth month running.
And thank whatever deity you want to name for that. I really can't stand Baghdad Larry's mind-numbingly insulting "Xbawks remains the hottest. How hot? Like *ssss* this hot!" PR statements.
Uncharted 4 will murder Tomb Raider
I'm sure Halo 5 will do some damage to Tomb Raider along with the other games releasing during that timeframe. If you look at the release schedule of Sunset OverDrive this year, Microsoft is essentially setting it up to fail. Releasing it on the same day as AC Unity and 1 week away from Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. Halo Master Chief Collection comes right after that.
I love halo, but the way things are going, I really don't think i'm gonna pick up an xbox for the master chief collection this year.
Haha! Bubble +funny...... Wait you're serious? why did you submitted this article if you didnt like what it contains?
do xbox users even play tomb raider?
Judging by how bad sales for tomb raider on both the 360 and one did, no, I mean they are a few that do play the games but my guess is that it's as small as the group that plays titles such as Alan Wake, and those are facts
It sold almost 1.8 million copies on the 360. Can't remember the X1 numbers, but believe it was around 250K. That's not a small number by any means. But it's still not a system seller.
Rise of wh-- ? Oh it fell hard quickly
Sometimes my jokes goes over people's heads...
you forgot the \ at the end.
Try a joke that's actually funny, instead of blatant trolling. Even if you were trolling to be ironic, it's still trolling.
Lol you think after this backlash rise of the tomb raider is gonna make a dent?
Im your Huckleberry.
this just made my day xDDDDDDDDDD
