PS4 Tops January 2017 NPD Hardware Sales
Nintendo Classic Mini beats out the Wii U.
The latest NPD hardware sales numbers are out and it should shock nobody that the PS4 was the best selling console around. If there was a piece of good news for Microsoft is that while the Xbox One finished second, it seems to be selling quite well.
The report says Microsoft has seen year over year growth for the Xbox One. That’s especially good news, considering that hardware sales in general was down quite a bit. In fact, hardware saw a decline of 19 percent year over year.
“The PlayStation 4 was the best-selling hardware (in units sold) during January 2017,” said NPD analyst Sam Naji. “And for the fourth consecutive month, PlayStation 4 Slim System 500GB Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Bundle was the top-selling PS4 sku in terms of units sold.”
Perhaps the big surprise of the hardware sales numbers were that the Wii U wasn’t number three. What did make the list as the third best selling console was the Nintendo Classic Mini NES.
