Monthly video game sales data from the NPD will be announced later today, but Sony sent out some early highlights ahead of the report. And first on that list: PlayStation 4 was the number one "next generation game console" in sales for the seventh consecutive month in the US. Note that, while at GameSpot we typically refer to PS4 and Xbox One as "current-gen," Sony refers to them as "next-gen" in the press quotes.
Sony reported that PS4 "led the month for next generation software sales by a considerable margin," and that "more than half of total next generation software sales" were for PS4.
The number one game in current-gen software sales was The Last of Us Remastered.
Sony also claimed the number one spot in "combined home console hardware sales" for the second month running.
We'll have more information from the NPD later today, but that answers most people's biggest question of "who came out on top for the month?" But that shouldn't be too big of a surprise since Sony revealed that the PS4 passed the 10 million consoles sold worldwide milestone earlier this week at their Gamescom press conference.
Have you made the transition to a current-gen system yet, or are you holding out for a little bit longer?
