PS4 Tops Hardware Charts in the US in October, Per NPD Group

The PS4 ended up having its best October ever, as well as the best October for any PlayStation platform in sixteen years.

Posted By | On 21st, Nov. 2018

To no one’s surprise, it seems like the PlayStation 4 ended up topping hardware charts in the United States in the month of October, according to the NPD Group’s report (via VentureBeat).

Buoyed, doubtless, by Red Dead Redemption 2, as well as the ongoing success of Spider-Man (as well as the Spider-Man Black Friday bundle), which launched just the month before, the PS4 ended up seeing the most dollars spent on it in terms of hardware during October, the most hardware units sold in October, the most units it has sold in October since it launched in 2013, as well as the most any PlayStation system has sold in October since the PS2 in October 2002. Whew lad.

The NPD Group also noted that the Xbox One was up year on year, and that the NES Classic and SNES Classic were huge drivers of hardware spending. Overall, it sounds like the industry is in a very healthy place right now. With November coming up, bringing with it a bunch of major launches, as well as the Holiday shopping season and discounts, next month’s NPD results will be particularly interesting to see.
