478 Comments

Extending its win streak another month, Sony's PlayStation 4 was the top-selling home console in the United States for February, according to NPD data released today.

Sony did not have a statement to share, but a representative confirmed that the PS4 was the No. 1 overall home console in the US in terms of sales for February.

No Caption Provided

In its own statement, Microsoft said global Xbox One game hours in February jumped 11 percent year-over-year, while global unique multiplayer users reached 35 percent-plus growth compared to last year. Xbox marketing boss Mike Nichols called out Halo Wars 2, For Honor, and Grand Theft Auto IV (in backwards compatibility) as helping drive engagement on Xbox One during the month.

A week from today, the NPD Group will announce the top-selling games for February 2017. We'll report back with more details as they become available.

And somehow this kind of articles are the ones where most of the fanboys are commenting and fighting for stupid things, specially Sony fanboys. Really man, reading the comments here makes you lose faith in humanity, sometimes.

@Geocross: I would not take this particular dark corner as a fair and general enough representation of "humanity"

@girlusocrazy: Couldn't agree more. This is the corner where the light comes to die.

@Geocross: maybe you should lose faith in your ability to make choices. Sell your damn Xbox and just get a PS4....maybe then you won't be sad and pathetic (and lose faith in humanity) in the comments section.

@bat725: Or maybe they own both consoles, could care less about which mega corporation is making more billions at any given moment, and just enjoy different games on different platforms for different reasons. Or maybe they just own a X1 and they're unphased by sales numbers. Do you know the percentage of console players that even bothers to research console sales numbers? I assure you it's incredibly small. Whatever make of car you drive probably sells much less than lots of other makes...it basically ruins your whole life and driving experience I bet...I will cut you some slack and presume your under 21 though, hopefully, either way, grow up bat boy...and maybe someday you'll be a bat man...

@NeonicTrash: Easy there, bud. Just a little fun system wars trolling. Don't like system wars, then don't click on an article that reports on sales numbers, because that's what 90% of the posters are going to be talking about. Otherwise, take your lickings like a man.

@beowulf1211: look, of course I'm exaggerating a bit but I'm not the sad one here.

@sellingthings: someone as sad as him owns an Xbox at this point. It's not rocket science. Everyone else is glowing with joy. I see you may be on his boat too.

@beowulf1211: Man, just calm down. I just mentioned sony fanboys because in my opinion they're more toxic than any other, but in general all fanboys are the same.

@Geocross: you seem like a genuinely decent guy so I'll cut you some slack. I do agree that people get really shallow here.

But my honest advice to you is....ditch your Xbox (if indeed you have just that). You'll be much more content on the other side. PS4 + Nintendo Switch and you'll have the biggest smile on your face.

@beowulf1211: Thanks man, and yes, I have an xbox but I also have a PC (and to be clear I'm not in that PC master race) so I'm good.

@Geocross: i agree. Its really pathetic. I love gaming because of all the different choices we have. I dont give a crap if they release a Collecovision exclusive, Ps4 exclusive etc. If its a fun game, Ill play it.

@Geocross: Sony fanboys just seem worse because there is more of them. In reality, all fanboys are idiots and just as bad as eachother.

@domiddian: this is true. Buy all and have the best gaming experience. If one can't afford all then shut up and enjoy what you have.... That's what I say lol

@domiddian: probably, but I just don't remember it being this bad last gen when 360 was top dog. Maybe I wasn't hanging out in these dumb gaming forums enough to notice

@sodapoppimpski: Then you have you... making up false time lines, and stories that are easily disproved, and you won't accept the facts... just keep posting the same false nonsense on here. Pathetic.
