Sony won July NPD

In other words, the sun will rise tomorrow. The PS4 is simply running away with this generation. There really is no other way to put it. Looking forward to picking one up soon to keep my Xbox One and Wii U company.

You know this gen sucks when a port of a last gen game is topping the charts

I'm also concerned just how much people applaud the current gen consoles for releasing almost nothing new or noteworthy.

PS4 has outsold both the 360 and XBone combined.

Ladies and gentlmen, the fat lady has sung.

Awsome. Ps4 deserves it.

Lol, that's the most amazing goal ever and I hate Football.

Edit: Yes, Football. This is the sport, which actually revolves around balls and feet ;)

lol I totally forgot about NPDs thanks to Silent Hills hype

Better luck next price cut, I guess.

#109 Edited by Speak_Low (1258 posts) -

If people hope TLOU: Remastered fails (to send a message to the industry), then you probably want GTA V PC to fail, and Halo: Masterchief Collection to fail. This remastered and reissue business needs to stop!

But I know the Lemmings want their Halo:MCC and the Herms want their GTA V:PC editions badly. They'd be sad as hell if MS and Rockstar cancelled those games. What a bunch of hypocrites.

And if it's a shame that a remaster (TLOU) is #1, it means Lems and Herms and Sheep have shit all themselves in the Top 10 to lock out TLOU:R. Every time I look at the NPD Top Ten charts every month, I never see it completely full of PC exclusive titles or Wii U titles. They claim their platforms are superior to the worthless, no-game-having PS4, and the PC/X1/Wii U are leading by example. What example? I see lots of quiet droughts, lots of similar waiting, and a lack of firm, established presence in the charts from platforms supposedly "hopping with more activity" than the barren PS4. The way they talk up their own platforms, I'm almost expecting a flourishing renaissance over there. Yeah right. Keep dreaming.

If TLOU:R is #1, then not only does this mean there's strong loyalty, many fans and new TLOU gamers out there - it also means Sony's competition has weak ass defenses. No games themselves to secure the top spots or dominate with. How do you like those apples

Enjoying sales is like having a mindset of a 15 year old nu metal fan checking out Billboard every week to see where his favorite bands are on the charts.

Ah thanks, hm pretty meh month for everyone it seems.

I guess the draught of good games is showing. Then again I think we will see a spike with Destiny.

#114 Posted by nutcrackr (12829 posts) -

Ouch 131k after a 197k. That is a 44% drop in sales. PS4 dropped 40%.

Cows love their remasters. Why bother with new games, just remaster all the PS3 games.

#115 Edited by GrenadeLauncher (6250 posts) -

PS4 outselling the "Xbox family." The transitionary year threshold has been crossed. Sorry, lemmings.

It's OK, you'll be able to enjoy the same feeling next gen if MS don't mess up again.

This is getting boring with Sony winning all the time. We need some excitement. At least last gen we could get into the whole WW vs NA numbers arguments, but this gen... man, so boring.

At least the Japanese market isn't as boring even though it's really one sided right now for Nintendo in both the console and handheld markets. Maybe you will get your excitement eventually.

Console gaming is dead in Japan anyway. So Japan doesn't really matter anymore when you look at the bigger picture.

Even the handheld market there isn't really doing great. Mobile gaming is really dominating Japan...

The only markets that matter are EU, US and other smaller terretories.

Lol at Sony, almost a whole generation they tried to keep their sales numbers from the public or hid them in overall Sony family numbers but now they are ahead they even spill the beans early .

July NPD data is coming soon, and Sony has revealed that the PlayStation 4 has come out on top in the US yet again.

Now that Phil Spencer said that the months april, may, june, july, etc are in sales figures just one week in November,

I bet he did.

And the PS4 will still outsell.

With Drive Club and Little Big Planet 2014 and The Order 1886 and BLOODBORNE all coming within a 6 month period I wouldn't get my hopes up.

Sony is showing that when they are in the lead, they actually bring the games. That is the difference between MS and Sony

when a game most gamers call it GOTG and one of the best games ever and it's the most awarded game in history too and sold over 7 million on ps3 alone outselling both Uncharted 3 and gears 3

you know it's popular .....and i'm damn happy about that not just because it's my favorite game ever but because it's New IP which prove New IPs can sell not just sequels and i hope developers take note and start making more new ips

200+ GOTY awards bra.

Gamespots lol 8.0 "it flopped" score for SW fanboy shits and giggles was truly irrelevant.

This also kills the idea that TLOU:R wouldn't be a PS4 system seller. Those fanboys who were preaching that only PS4 owners who already played the game on PS3 would buy this game were delusional, stupid really.

TLOU:R beat out EVERY multiplat on the sales charts only being out a couple of days at the end of the month, lol that's really gotta burn the Sony hating fanboy camps bum!!!

Congrats to Sony for turning their shit around though.

You (much like Polygon) go from a possible assumption "but maybe Microsoft can turn the tables" to a solid fact, "so this all doesn't matter" therefore excusing crap sales with imaginary scenarios. You'd fit right in at Polygon.

Well I can disregard everything you say when you call it crap sales... Fastest selling console ever for Microsoft, and yes they are selling worse than PS4, but not crap. Try to get a moderator job at NeoGAF

Fastest selling ever for MS? The original Xbox was an unknown and came late to the party. Takes time to make a name....logical a successor would sell more. The 360 I believe had the demand....but not the supply. X1 has had supply....should sell faster. And for those reasons that PR term is relatively useless.

@chikenfriedrice: So basically from some of the stuff I read that you posted. You like the gimmicks,the console comes with.But if that's kinda stuff you like . I'll end there.

Those aren't gimmicks....those are features. Don't knock it until you have experienced it. I'm using the console the way MS intended it to be used and it works great. Games are always number one for me that's why I always get both and have a gaming PC so I don't miss out but the Xbox One offers more than just games.

Since PS4 alone is outselling both XBoxes combined in America I'd say all that talk about people waiting to leap to XBone is debunked as fuck.

People need to look at these NPD numbers in perspective. This is still just the American market. Worldwide, the distance between the two is far greater.

Not bashing the Xbone, but they kinda played their hand and nothing changed. Titanfall failed to be the gamechangers that Gears of War was for the 360, they dropped the price of the console and outside of a small boost, nothing. At this point, their only real ace left is Halo 5 and given the fans mixed reaction to 4, I have my doubts that even that will give the console an adrenaline rush.
