It was another strong month for Sony, as its console continues to to dominate.
Whoa. Big month for Nintendo, too!
Glorious. The superior gaming console with superior service is doing better while releasing more exclusive titles. Even though the xbox one is cheaper the ps4 is still outselling it.
With the recent news of sony winning another NPD and M$ losing titanfall 2 exclusivity i predict a cascade of pro-ms and anti -sony articles especially focussed against bloodbourne in responce!
The only time X1 outsold PS4 was when PS4 was in extreme shortage and when X1 was $329 with 2-3 games and a $50 gift card. Essentially making it $199 in value.
@CapaDemon The hates already started with the release of the sales numbers. It's unfortunate that dishonest fanboys have any influence. All the consoles are great and should do well without insecure fanboys trying to influence sales.
X1 price-drop officially neutralized. March will be worse. No price-drop for PS4 yet. Crazy.
Congrats to Sony on the PS4s continued and impressive worldwide success. I can see 2015 being an even stronger year for the PlayStation brand with all of the great looking new exclusive games, massive 3rd party support and deep library of high quality indie titles all coming out this year.
Congrats to Sony and Nintendo.
And yet they're all inferior compared to PC. I really wish people would stop using the words superior and console in the same sentence. Consoles are about the convenience and the few golden exclusives you get. Not about superiority.
VGchartz>NPD Sales are one month old. This is news is older than my grandma.
Slightly more powerful hardware? Sure but superior service? Uhhh no. Anyone who's honest with themselves knows the difference between the two services they offer. Psn is deeply flawed on some of the most basic things. I still getting a blank blue screen half of the time when I go to load the store. Still get errors when I try to send messages to all of my friends. Colin and Greg just took it to task two days ago and they are the most diehard of sony lovers. Shuhei Yoshida stopped by for an hour to play a game with them just last week but they are still honest about it. This is the problem Sony fans don't complain enough to Sony about these things so they never fix them or it takes years until they do. When something bad happens with Sony it gets blown over or barely mentioned. All the diehard fans do is praise them and rail on the competition. That's why they do Things like create proprietary over priced memory cards. Keep rolling out controllers with 4 hour battery life. Take almost two years to roll out features promised when the system was announced. I honestly feel like they could get away with anything except releasing a 600 dollar system. Ms puts so much as a lil advertisement box way down in the corner of the dashboard that you never even have to go anywhere near and it's the worst thing ever lol. Granted ms was guilty of things like this too but because they were taken to task the Xbox one has grown by leaps and bounds over just one year. I just wish some of you guys would turn some of that negativity towards Sony so they can stop coasting on your infinite goodwill and fix some if the basic things they should have fixed years ago.
Yikes. So the only way the Xbone can compete with the PS4's sales in its home turf, is by selling at a reduced price and bundling it with plenty of freebies. While that's not good for the brand's image, it's great news for gamers on a budget. So expect to see more of last year's types of bundles this year.
@mikeslemonade: VGchartz = the land of make believe while NPD = real reported numbers with 100% accuracy. VGchartz is ran by an Xbox fan who skews the numbers in his console of choices favor which probably means you are an Xbox fan and that is why you prefer their imaginary numbers.
A big congratulations to Sony. Outselling it's closest competitor(?) despite it being $50 cheaper and giving away 2 free games.
The PS4 is a great gaming console that deserves its incredibly high worldwide sales. The PlayStation brand has had some rocky roads here and there, but ultimately it has been consistently giving gamers high quality gaming experiences for the past 20 years. PSone, PS2 and PS3 all ended their respective generations strong with both quality gaming and high worldwide sales. The PS4 is on track to continue that tradition.
I seem to always find the PS4 on sale almost every week at a different distributor in 2015. This week ... Groupon 360 dollar plus Last of Us free. Last week it was on Amazon with not one, not two but THREE free games. Last of Us, Killzone and Infamous for 399. I bought the PS4 in December for 330 at Walmart. Maybe the PS4 doesn't have an official sale ... but it's on sale or given with free games every single week. This is a FACT. Watch me still get disagrees.
Also 9th place for the order? damn things aren't looking good for RAD.
Was only out for 8 days and not multiplatform but nice troll. :P
Yeh that whole 1 week of sales compared to the other games that released a week or more before hand, when this is monthly sales looks bad for the order /sarcasm Some ppl seem to forget this is the monthly sales chart and the order was available for one week in that month. It's sold around a million world wide in 1 week, I think RAD will be pretty happy with that , especially considering the full on assault hate campaign the game had blasted at it from "journalists"
@MRMagoo123 No, they haven't forgotten, they just need to say anything to make themselves feel good about the fact that they don't have anything to play till the end of the year.
Good work Sony. Does anyone have leaked numbers?
3DS - 395k (combined with the N3DS) PS4 - 342k XBO - 276k Wii U - 94k PSV TV > 30k/PSV < 30k (So about 60k) Note that February is a 4 week month and March is a 5 week month (as far as NPD is concerned). So this month could be even higher. The XB1 had Titanfall last March and the PS4 has Bloodborne, MLB:TS and FF Type O (which is selling much much better on the PS4. The PS4 version is at #4 whilst the XB1 version hasn't even charted yet. http://www.amazon.com/best-... I'm thinking a gap of 135k - 145k perhaps.
Congratulations to Xbox One for continued growth with 84% mores sales then January. Kudos to all companies for excellent growth in gaming period. Great time to be a gamer.
84%? It only has one February to compare to Ahh ms and their PR
I am so close to buying a N3DSXL finally. It just looks so fun.
I really like mine, I picked it up for Bravley Default, Fire Emblem, and Xenoblade. It plays nice with my Vita :)
Get Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Fire Emblem Awakening and Zelda Link Between Worlds. Last 3 video games you'll ever need before you can die happy
Mad how they include digital for Majoras mask but for non nintendo games just retail as MS and Sony don't share digital numbers to NPD. Also noticed the only games that sold more on Xbox were shooters.. Surprised?? Doubt it..
yea nintendo : D good for them : D
it is not looking great for the order, 9th here and 4th on the digital charts majora's mask at 515k sold, fantastic for that we can safely say the order sold less than 515k but more than 290k x1 numbers guessed at 285k based on last months guess and MS's statement of plus 85% to those thinking PS4 beat Ninty http://www.forbes.com/sites...
Nope! The Order came out on the 20th Feb ( NPD Coverage: February 1-28 ) So, only 1 week for The Order! Slayed by gaming journalist! In the end 9th place is NOT THAT BAD ( around 300k )! Anyway, 3DS sold around 395k! http://i.imgur.com/WIK0pLH.... PS4 is console No.1 and it sold probably over 400k. ( EDIT : maybe not ) MS statement: “Xbox One’s fan base continues to grow with record February sales in the U.S. for Xbox One and 84 percent more consoles sold compared to January 2015. In February 2015, fans spent an average of 74 hours on Xbox Live in the U.S. – three times the amount of hours the average user spends on social networks*. And, Xbox Live set new records, quadrupling global gaming hours on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in February 2015 compared to February 2014. We are grateful to our fans for choosing to play on Xbox One. Offerings and experiences will continue to expand with Xbox One and 'Halo: The Master Chief Collection' available together for $349, new games launching this month including 'ScreamRide' and 'Ori and the Blind Forest,' hundreds of new [email protected] ROFLMAO!
they usually don't count handhelds when they're announcing their "victories"... the use of the line "cumulative hardware sales" kinda lends credence to the fact they ignore handhelds since 3ds is way ahead 20th, majority of it's sales would have been in the first 2 weeks of the games release... it's seemingly been rightfully slayed by the gaming journalists
PS4 is #1 hardware but when you combine n3DS and 3DS it out sold the PS4. Not hard to get. PS4 > n3DS > X1 3DS family > PS4. Respectable indeed for both.
