Microsoft’s Xbox One was the top-selling console in the United States for December 2014 according to the NPD Group’s latest report. However, the best-selling platform of the year is the PlayStation 4 which sold 18.5 million units worldwide since launching in November 2013.

An SCEA rep told GameSpot that, “We are humbled by this success and want to thank gamers worldwide for helping us achieve holiday sales of more than 4.1 million across 123 countries and regions. We are looking forward to another momentous year in 2015 and bringing an epic line up of titles to PlayStation fans around the world.”

The PlayStation 4 has quite the quarter ahead with The Order: 1886 and Bloodborne set to release in February and March respectively. It also has Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End coming by year end. How Sony fills the gap in between remains to be seen but it won’t have to worry about console sales any time soon. Thoughts on the matter? Let us know in the comments.

    First of all , NPD is “INDEPENDENT” and not recognized by US Government.
    2: they’re not “INTERNATIONAL”
    3: Everyone knows NPD was founded and are funded by Sony .

    They say they don’t cover outside the US but CLAIM they know world sales now , but still, won’t show MS numbers … what a crock of @*&% ….

      Why doesn’t it sound good for Sony? Sounds like a pretty healthy number of countries to have released in.

      I think if MS thought they’d sell 10M consoles in those other countries they’d have released there by now don’t you?

    Wait, so an article about NPD, a North American sales tracker, turns into a pro-Sony article about worldwide sales and what games are coming in the first quarter? Basically a ‘yay Playstation!’ article disguised as “news”. Unbelievable.

    I don’t understand why consoles sales are still being pushed as the reason why it is successful. In actual truth, it’s only half the pie. A network infrastructure is the 2nd half and is ultimately the reason that will judge the success of a modern gaming company. Unless if you are competing with Nintendo, you can’t talk about consoles sales without understanding the importance of quality of services attached to them. The game have changed since Xbox live was introduced. Only talking consoles sales is a great cover story and serves as deceptive advertisement at best. Kaz knows.
