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.

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.
Bathyj  +   36d ago
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.
zeuanimals  +   36d ago

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.
trenso1  +   36d ago
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?
sonarus  +   36d ago
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
SilentNegotiator  +   36d ago
For a system with "no games", it's selling a lot of them.

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.

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.
Boody-Bandit  +   35d ago

"And to think Tomb Raider was made a timed exclusive for what?"

A truck load of money.

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.

They can again when Halo 5 comes out, or GOW 4 and etc...

Halo MCC mainly, but Sunset Overdrive can help due to it coming out at the end of October leading into November.

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.

Chevalier  +   36d ago
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.
sparta76  +   36d ago
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? ;)
ABizzel1  +   36d ago
The thing is this is only NPD, and when you add WW numbers into the equation the gap between the two is vastly different.


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.
BiggerBoss  +   36d ago
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.
Kribwalker  +   36d ago

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
trenso1  +   36d ago
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.
avengers1978  +   36d ago
@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...
choujij  +   35d ago
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.
AceBlazer13  +   35d ago
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.
rainslacker  +   35d ago
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?
kingvendrick  +   35d ago
@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.
avengers1978  +   35d ago
@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.

PONTIAC08G8GT  +   35d ago
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.
kenshiro100  +   35d ago

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.
greenlantern2814  +   35d ago
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.

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.

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.

rainslacker  +   35d ago
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.

Also, I guess outselling the PS4 with Halo, Gears and Tomb Raider in those months of release is enough right? Don't be silly... That's what, 3-4 months of sales over several months of a consistent lead?

NPD Coverage for July: July 6-August 2, 2014

So, TLOU : R release date was July 29th. NPD count just 4 days for TLOU : R and it is #1 in July. AWESOME!


Quote :

"It was the only major game released in the month. LOL "

So, games for PS4 in July :

Sniper Elite III
Guacamelee : Super Turbo
Another World : 20th Anno. Edition
Rogue Legacy
Oddworld : New 'n' Tasty
Pure Pool


Anyway :

1. The Last of Us (PS4, PS3)
2. Minecraft (360, PS3)
3. FIFA 14 (360,PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Vita)
4. Watch Dogs (PS4, 360, PS3, Xbox One, PC)
5. Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)
6. Call of Duty: Ghosts (Xbox One, 360, PS4, PS3, Wii U, PC)
7. Grand Theft Auto V (360, PS3)
8. Sniper Elite III (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3)
9. NBA 2K14 (360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, PC)
10. Lego Marvel Super Heroes (360, PS3, 3DS, DS, PS4, Wii U, Xbox One, Vita, PC)

This :

- PlayStation 4 games accounted for more than half of total next generation software sales

WD sold more on X360 than Xbone, Sniper Elite III sold more on PS4, COD sold more for Xbone. Well, after World Cup, FIFA had a nice jump in US. :) And Minecraft really can't sink! And surprised there is no Titanfall!

It was only available three days in July and still was number one, the game sold 1.5 million (PS4) in one day world wide(rarely does any game for one platform sell that many copies in one day), that is very good sales for any game on a single platform. It will be number one for August too or at least in the top five.

See thats interesting because first it has to stem the monthly deficits. Its probably only down by 700-800k but that is still a tall order. It means that the Xbox One has to not just match the PS4, but outsell it by nearly 1 million units. If Sony Sells 2 million this holiday, Microsoft has to sell 3 million; just to break even. So while it is possible, each month, the feat become more and more unlikely unless people just stop buying the PS4.

And thats just in the US. Worldwide, it is not going to happen.

To catch up, they would have to start outselling first. If you just mean catch up on month to month sales, as in they sell roughly equal each month, then it's possible, but given that sales generally have been on a downward slope for the X1 until the new SKU, it's hard to think that's going to happen before November. It would also mean that Sony sales would either have to remain the same going into the holiday, or decrease...two scenarios that aren't likely to happen.

pwnsause_returns  +   36d ago
its gonna hit 14-16 million by the end of the year.

Look at the games coming out in the next months(3rd party games of course but these games will sell better on PS4 and will move consoles), you also have black friday and the rest of the holidays.

Then you have the 2015 timeframe, look at the games hitting early 2015...

so to say 20 million by august, idk, its gonna hit that mark sooner man.

These are PS2 numbers, except that the PS4 is selling at almost a faster rate, if not faster...

but microsoft?(by the way I've owned a Xbox , 3 × Xbox 360's) are akin to rolls royce, making a new phantom(albeit a lower engine size to the main competitor), and try selling it with a turd on the back seat.

It would have been a good car , but persons behind making it took a crap in it before it was sold , ladies and gentlemen , I give you the crash story called Xbox one.

Congrat Sony, MS, And Nintendo. All did well this month on NPD. Competition is good.

All that info is interesting, but I was hoping for actual numbers. And numbers of the other consoles too for comparison
mochachino  +   36d ago
It's almost sad that a remake had the same effect on bolstering console sales as Titanfall. But TLOU is a masterpiece.

I wonder where Truefan1 is...
Major_Glitch  +   36d ago | Funny
Trufan? I saw him outside moving goal posts.
OT: Sony showing sustained superiority.(say that three times fast)
Master-H  +   36d ago
He's been avoiding sales articles for a while now, he doesn't wanna lose his pride in two consecutive months i guess lul
iceman06  +   36d ago
I think he lost that on about day 2 or 3 of him commenting!
DeadlyOreo  +   35d ago
Yes, that screen capture! How embarrassing for the guy.
MonsterChef  +   36d ago
Where is he though I remember clearly stating that after e3 the one would consistently out sale the ps4 he said that the price drop still hadn't been factor in yet in June and he said it before when titan fall came out he just seems to be wrong every single time
rainslacker  +   35d ago
True...even Patcher is right once in a while. Trufan is actually worse at making predictions than Patcher.

He has a tummy ache after eating all that crow.

There you have it folks. PS4 domination is real and can't be stopped. How many time exclusives must MS waste money on in hopes of catching PS4?
GamersHeaven  +   36d ago
This is insane I never thought I would see a PS2 era again in my life time this is bigger than PS2 Playstation brand is a monster.
MonsterChef  +   36d ago
I can't wait there simply wasnt a better time to be a gamer than when the ps2 was out so much variety in gaming damn that was awesome and that's why last generation wasn't as special because you had business minded people at the top whose only concern was to appeal to stockholders not gamers why do you think every game was trying to be Cod, that's why I hate Microsoft they take the creativity away from the developers
MultiConsoleGamer  +   36d ago
I hear the TLOU numbers are huge. I wonder if we will get a leak?

Well deserved success.
KwietStorm  +   36d ago
A leak of the sales numbers? Well it was said they sold 1.5 mil on release.

I think that was combined numbers for multiple regions.
KwietStorm  +   36d ago
Oh I didn't know you meant just the US.
Dlacy13g  +   36d ago
Its good to see the industry continue to have great numbers in the summer months.
BattleTorn  +   36d ago
I've been gaming tons of last-gen, and buying surprisingly a lot too.
CertifiedGamer  +   36d ago
Whatever happened to the price-drop that would have caused them X1 to match PS4 on monthly sales like Michael Patcher said?
JMyers  +   36d ago
Meanwhile VG Chartz has Sony's world wide sales as 9.3 million. Talk about serious under tracking.

Let's see them adjust it in the next few days, like they did every other occasion.
KwietStorm  +   36d ago
We get it.
HollywoodLA  +   36d ago
I think Sony might be winning this gen. It's becoming ever-increasingly obvious. Not so much hyperbole anymore, but objective, sales-based reality.
Kingoftherodeo  +   36d ago
if only sony could deliver the games tired of waiting. feel free to post a list of indie games
SilentNegotiator  +   36d ago
"PlayStation 4 games accounted for more than half of total next generation software sales."

If they don't have non-indie games, how did that happen? Get your "OMG only indies!" concern trolling BS out of here.

And that folks is called complete domination. Not close, not fighting, is just relax and comfort domination.

Pretty amazing indeed. Even more amazing is TLOU. Just 3 of July and it was number 1. I didn't expect it, it is a remastered In think many PS4 owners were Xbox owners last gen and didn't play it before.

I expect TLOU to be on the top 3 for august.

I would love to see the face of Square Enix when they see this news. What a Titanfall, I mean, what a bad move.
rainslacker  +   35d ago
Square Enix, and every other major publisher, has access to these numbers with a phone call to the console makers. Probably even more accurate numbers in fact.

That's the scary part. SE knows it will sell better on the PS platform. The first one did, and the PS4 currently has twice the install base with no signs of slowing down, so even being 1.5 years out isn't going to change that much.

What SE is hoping to do, besides get that nice check from MS, is get that exclusive bump on the platform to bring more people on the platform into the series. Then they'll release it later to the majority of players that would likely buy it on the other system anyways. Kind of like having their cake and eating it too. Unfortunately, they burnt the cake, so it didn't go over so well at their party as the guest complained.

Xbox One isn't a bad console. It had it's fuck ups last year, but most have been fixed. I personally think people are hating on it just to look ''cool''.
kingvendrick  +   35d ago
Not bad for an 'indiestation' loool.

Just wait till christmas, PS4 gonna be like rocking horse poop, I'd get one now if you haven't already.

10 mill sold through, generation over according to M$.

PS4 the win.
Brettman2008  +   35d ago
Barnstorming PS4 console sales in 2014 in what will likely be the weakest year for PS4 exclusives. The amount of exclusives coming in 2015 and beyond is just amazing. More to be announced at the Tokyo Game Show as well.
