Though it didn’t specifically list sales figures, the NPD’s July 2014 report revealed that the PlayStation 4 beat the Xbox One for the seventh month in a row in sales. Sony proclaimed at Gamescom that it had sold more than 10 million units worldwide. Even when it came to combined Xbox One and Xbox 360 sales though, the PS3 and PS4 together came out on top.

Microsoft didn’t have much to say other than Xbox One sales had doubled from month-on-month, owing to a price cut in June, and that consoles are selling at a steady pace. According to the NPD, total industry sending was at $514.3 million, indicating a 16 percent year on year growth.

Hardware sales increased by 100 percent year on year for $198.8 million. Software sales were down to $178.2 million, which meant a 15 percent year on year decrease, but this was due to the lack of many major releases in July. Despite the low sales, Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us still emerged as the top game on PS4 and PS3.
