Sony’s PlayStation 4 console has been very popular since it was launched and it continues to be successful, aided partly by new titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man which may have driven many people to buy the new console. So it is no surprise that a new report from industry-tracking firm The NPD Group reveals that the PlayStation 4 was the best selling gaming console in the United States last month.
The report also mentions that the new Spider-Man game was the best-selling game in September. Also no surprise. Sony had offered a bundle that had the console adorned with a limited edition Spider-Man color scheme.
“PlayStation 4 hardware achieved the highest September unit sell-through for a non plug-n-play console since the PS4 in 2014,” said NPD’s Mat Piscatella.
So Sony was able to extend the PS4’s lead this year even further than it was already. It’s already the best-selling console in the United States so far this year and September has been yet another good month for the console.
Microsoft’s Xbox One is doing pretty good too. “Xbox One hardware dollar sales in September grew more than 30 percent when compared to a year ago and are now up more than 60 percent year to date,” Piscatella said.
Can Sony keep this momentum up?
