The PlayStation 4 was the top-selling console in July in the United States, according to NPD data that Sony shared with GamesBeat.
Is the Cycle complete yet...?
@ABizzel1 I almost agree with your list. But for November I honestly don't think it will be close at all. There will be no doubt a Star Wars and COD PS4 bundle. If there is I can see the PS4 coming top in November. Also October I agree about is being very close. The way I look at is. A lot of 360 only players last gen who jumped to PS4 this gen. This is going to be there first taste of Uncharted there going to get. But even though I don't like Halo. I can't deny the fanbase it has. So I honestly can't call October. However Sony also has Tales of Zestiria as another exclusive that month. I personally don't like JRPG's all that much. But I know these type of games also have a big fan base.
Keep it up Sony. Today's music is nowhere as good as the 90's but your current dominance makes it feel like it's the 90's. Rock on.
Why did I read that in Emperor Palpatines voice...LMAO!!!
Backwards compatibility didnt move consoles who would have thought ?
congrats Sony august is a toss up but if anything I say ps4 has the upper hand. no I don't have any inside info just looking at the history of past months I don't see ps4 loosing September with mgs5 and taken king bundle October could be very interning with halo 5 but I still see it as a close Month but Xbox one takes October. uncharted collection will do quite well. I wouldn't be surprised if uncharted collection sells more than tomb raider than Sony may do a assassin creed syndicate bundle but I don't know if they have in the past for AC series. November should be an easy ps4 month with both star wars and call of duty being exclusively advertised for ps4. and both will very likely be bundled with ps4 console. especially star wars, I think sales wise it will do very well December I am not sure, Hitman is exclusively associated with ps4 advertisement wise so what knows bottom line is quite simple with all the touting about Xbox one exclusives will those really make a huge difference. I love studying sales data especially for games. halo 3 was the peak for halo franchise, since than no halo game had come close to selling as well and how many of halo fans already bought an Xbox one Sony has reported that ps4 is expected to surpass 36.3 million sales by March 31st 2016. and in 2016 Sony has some really really heavy hitters uncharted 4 horizon the last guardian rumors have it that a new GT game will be announced at either tgs or Playstation event. plus what else will Sony show at playstation event this year? could we possibly see a trailer for god of war 4? it was confirmed last year at playstation event also rumor has it Sony will announce a Ps4 exclusive from R*. could this be agent? I don't care about the exclusive part I just want a new game from R*. to be honest with you I really want the next RDR does ms have the exclusive marketing for fallout 4 along with 30 days early dlc? I don't remember eating anything about it I really hope fallout 4 is making an impact on all platforms at the same time without having to sign any sort of exclusive marketing or dlc deal
There's a lot of talk about the PS4's weak line up atm, but I've just bought Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and I've got Until Dawn pre-ordered. Looking fine to me.
Rocket League was a nice surprise this last month too. Simple game, but so much fun.
OMG that game is just seriously so addictive... I love it.
For a game to be considered good, it must have a AAA budget. /s
I know you are sarcastic but it's sad so many believe that. Rocket League reminds me of what the industry has lost over the years due to the AAA mentality
Play station would still be king w no line up & 3rd party's only lol
I usually only see that from trolls. Don't know how it's a weak lineup. There's more stuff coming than I can actually get to this year.
It's weak because only AAA first party Xbox games released from October to December count as games 100% of the time. Everything else is conditional, based on the argument being made at that time.
No, it's weak because I can get half those games on my IPhone...
Put your money where your mouth is, let's see a list of those "half" you can buy for your overhyped, overpriced phone.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wi... 135 PS4 exclusives vs 53 XBone exclusives. This list includes all exclusives that have released and are confirmed to be releasing. Considering Sony has 3 more conferences for the rest of the year, while MS has nothing until next year, it's safe to say that PS4's list will only grow from here on out, while XBone's list will stay about the same. I will say, there is Halo Wars 2 missing from the XBone list, but that doesn't change PS4's almost 3:1 lead in games. At no point has XBone had "more games", nor will it ever. That's just a bullshit hype statement that MS comes up with, and people buy into it without doing any real research. The proof is in the pudding. Xbox fans can pretend these games don't exist because they don't personally want to play them, but the reality is otherwise.
Worst of all, if you're a pc gamer with a Ps4, you can still play Halo Wars and a bunch of other Xbox "exclusives"!
Funny thing after looking at the list i noticed Bastion which is a 4 year old game and was on the xbox360 so wouldn't it technially be a multiplat
I just wish the PS4 had more FPS/TPS shooters exclusives.
@MrKrispy It's listing 8th gen platforms only. Even if the game is on PS3 or 360 as well, it's still exclusive to that 8th gen if it's available on that/ PC.
Enjoy those games. :)
Yeah the ps4 line up is so weak that it makes indie games and qte games look more appealing
Congrats again Sony. More software sales than all others combined. Killing it this gen! Leave some for Xbox too!
Its very impressive feat, considering that all other install bases combined are much larger.
That Batman bundle really made the difference.
The last of us bundle is still selling as well. This past week I wanted to buy a batman bundle for my nephew at best buy and they were out of stock. Had to order it online instead. I'm still surprised on how it's selling without even a price drop and "lack of games".
lack of games? lol i really dont understand why ppl say this... PS4 has all the games buddy.. exclusive wise PS4 will pick it up in a couple months.. it was the same way for PS3 then many games followed
Bundle is not included in NPD data.
It's the software included in the bundle that is not counted as part of NDA. The consoles are absolutely folded in.
So you think a bundle with a game is effectively invisible to NPD? Did you know that bundles made up 90% of sales in July? It's the GAME that isn't counted, not the console.
You guys are right, just my bad wording.
And there is a Destiny and MGS bundle on deck..
Hopefully Star Wars too
Congratulations to Sony.
Nicholas Cage ?
I've seen someone make this comment before. I don't get it.. why you guys keep saying Nicholas Cage? Is there something I missed?
@null yea i don't get it either.
"the top selling console and No. 1 in software sales" and that's why you won't see a pricecut or a slimmer model anytime soon, no need to
They gotta bring that 1TB model to NA though. Been waiting for that.
They dont have that in the US yet? We have them in Australia, kinda odd we get something first........might have to call riplys believe it or not and let them know.
Let's be honest here, how slim can Sony even make the PS4? It's pretty slim as it is.
Ps2 slim? lol
I want it so slim that I can't even see it. Wait...what...i...
As slim as PSONE?
Perhaps Sony will just offer a 1 or 2 TB console for the same price and drop price on 512 GB units? I love my PS4 but really am in need to upgrade the HDD. 512GB is not nearly enough room. I'l like a 2TB or higher if I can find the drive.
Console gaming is far from dead. You can fanboy all you want but at the end of the day the first sentence is all that matters. currently enjoying Rocket League and soon Until Dawn
Expect this trend to continue well into next year when Uncharted 4, Horizon ZD, and Dreams drop.
I honestly don't see XBone outselling PS4 for the Nov/ Dec NPD's either this year. Sony has the marketing on lockdown for Battlefront and Black Ops 3. If they can land exclusive bundles for both, they'll dominate. M$'s only real hope is trying to get Fallout 4 marketing, but they probably won't because RoTR comes out the same day and they want that to sell at least a few copies lol. Besides that, they're only legitimate card to get some good holiday sales in is Halo 5, but after the big MCC fiasco last year, I don't see even Halo helping them much this time around.
So much for the Xbox comeback.
Thats only on n4g xbox propaganda articles. In the real world ps4 is king.
Nah. Apparently the Xbox comeback has been delayed until Crackdown comes out.
Then when people realize the power of the crackdown cloud is nothing but more smoke being blown out the corporation's ass, they'll find a new date for the comeback. Before we know it, we'll be looking at new consoles.
I am glad that this means more games for Xbox One owners. :) I like the fact that MS has a burner under them....All these moves being done to make the Xbox better and better.
And even more games for PlayStation owners.Nice spin though.
Thats still up in the Clouds, it may never come down
Probably X1 will take NPD in oct-nov, depending how Halo 5 performs.
PS4 will take November this year i feel it
magicite Xbox one will take October but it will still be close with uncharted collection and I think Sony also has the exclusive marketing for assassin creed syndicate. we may even see a bundle November is ps4 no doubt about it. star wars bundle for sure and most likely a call of duty bundle along with exclusive marketing for both. so when advertisement play cause gamers will see ps4 logo at the end with word exclusive content December is a toss up but Sony also has the elusive marketing for Hitman oh and September is sony's too. mgs 5 bundle and taken king bundle. it's quite funny how Sony has taken the ms route this year to say we can wait and give our developers some extra time while marketing huge 3rd party games so far so good 2016 may even top 2015 sales wise for ps4 with uncharted 4, dreams, the last guardian and horizon rumor also has it that we may see either GT or god of war 4 in 2016 too
Yeah, the Xbox comeback is now contingent on Crackdown 3's multiplayer. You know your console of choice is in trouble when your only hope is ONE feature in a multiplayer mode in ONE game that won't even be out for a year. That's cloud power for you.
I guess E3 still didn't help out...you guys better pray to the cloud god...Phil! All jokes aside who really believes the PS4 wouldn't win 90% of the NPD's?
More Phil Spencer news please.
lol seriously whats going on with 'Spencer on this' , 'Spencer on that' ;) whatever OT I like the way they put it 'We are truly humbled '
Lol, Damn you ...I was about to say this. Have a "funny bubble" from me
Lol wenaldy, that was a good one. Bubble for funny.
This was expected as the wii u (ps4 closest rival) has been slacking lately. Hopefully nintendo can pull something out of the bag with the next console and once again become sony's closest rival.
