Sony Computer Entertainment confirmed today that during the month of September, Playstation 4 outsold both Wii U and Xbox One. According to The NPD Group, Playstation 4 has outsold all other consoles every month this year with the exception of April.
Sony also released this statement regarding the announcement…
“As we kick off the holiday season, we would like to take a moment to thank fans for making PlayStation 4 the best-selling console and #1 in software sales in September. PlayStation 4 was the number one console for NBA 2K16, Madden NFL 16, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and FIFA 16. Including the highly successful limited edition console bundle, PS4 also led retail sales for Destiny: The Taken King. It was also a very strong month for PlayStation Network with September being the highest grossing month in PlayStation Store history. From PlayStation exclusives like the recently launched Uncharted Collection to partnerships with Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Star Wars Battlefront, we are committed to our community and to making PlayStation the best place to play this holiday.”
With both Playstation 4 and Xbox One receiving price cuts for the holiday season, it will be interesting to see if Sony will be able to maintain the momentum.
