Microsoft may have made the Xbox One price drop to $349 permanent and official in January, but that was not enough for Sony to reclaim the first place crown for hardware sales that it has largely held in the US ever since its launch back in November 2013. The PlayStation 4 once again was the top selling console in the country for January 2015.

The Xbox One was in second place, claiming its best performance for the month of January ever, meaning it sold at the very least 140,000 units; the Wii U came in in an expected last place, with a respectable 61,000 units sold.

The PS4’s dominance in the hardware field came in site of Xbox One apparently having claimed the lead in software sales for this period. It will be interesting to see how things go in February, especially given that February is seeing the launch of new hardware (New Nintendo 3DS) that might shake things in the hardware charts up again.
