NPD September 2014 Report: PS4 Leads Over Xbox One in Console Sales

PS4 sales in September triple that of August.

Posted By | On 17th, Oct. 2014 Under News


Despite Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter saying that the Xbox One beat out the PS4 in console sales for September, the latest NPD report for September has revealed that Sony’s console was the number one selling system in the United States for that month. Geoff Keighley also reported that compared to sales in August, the PS4 sold triple the number of consoles in September.

Destiny was the biggest release for the console in September, naturally, but several multiplatform games like FIFA 15 also saw great sales on the PS4. Nintendo wasn’t left behind in September. Super Smash Bros. on the 3DS managed to sell 705,000 units within its first two days. About 135,000 of those sales came from the Nintendo eShop. The 3DS sold 140,000 units, marking a 55 percent increase over August and sales of the Wii U increased by 50 percent.

Microsoft is yet to comment on the NPD’s report.

Overall software sales were down by 36 percent year-on-year to $481.2 million. This is due to the fact that Grand Theft Auto 5 launched in the same month last year though. Hardware sales saw a significant uptick though with $432.7 million in sales, indicating a 136 percent year-on-year increase. Total industry spending for the month was $1.1 billion.

    whatever you and sony say gamingbolt.p.s why don’t you go and ask sony to prove it buy showing some real numbers instead of saying what they sold.

    I was a little skeptical of pachters prediction simply because of the destiny bundle. If Microsoft is going to start winning it’ll start in November. With halo, the call of duty bundle and the assassins creed bundles, that should be Microsoft’s month. And if it loses in that month then that’ll pretty much sum up this generation.

      Yeah I’ve never liked how Sony just comes out and claims they led the month without giving any numbers. But they’ve been right every time so it’s hard for me to argue.
