Win or lose..

I say the Ps4 outsold the xbox one again.Numbers should be out in a few hours.

Nintendo PR.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS launched on Oct. 3 in the U.S., and even with only two days of data included in NPD’s September report, the game still managed to finish as the No. 4 best-selling software SKU for the month with more than 705,000 total units sold. Of that total, more than 135,000 units were sold digitally through the Nintendo eShop. The game’s biggest impact however may be on hardware sales. More than 140,000 units of the Nintendo 3DS family of systems were sold in September, an increase of 55 percent over sales in August.

Sales of Wii U hardware also saw double-digit increases in September, increasing by nearly 50 percent over sales in August. These gains were driven in particular by two software titles: Hyrule Warriors and Mario Kart 8. Hyrule Warriors launched on Sept. 26 and has already sold more than 190,000 combined units in the U.S. alone. Mario Kart 8 sold nearly 60,000 combined units in its fifth month on the market, bringing its lifetime total in the U.S. to nearly 1.2 million total units.

A great lineup of games for Wii U begins on Oct. 26 with Bayonetta 2, the Wii U exclusive that currently holds a 91 score on Metacritic. That continues with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U on Nov. 21 and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker on Dec. 5. Also launching on Nov. 21 is amiibo, Nintendo’s foray into the toys-to-life category. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will be the first game to launch with amiibo integration. Other games that will support amiibo include Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Mario Party 10 and Yoshi’s Woolly World, with more to come. More details about compatibility and functionality of amiibo may be found at http://amiibo.com.

The Nintendo 3DS library will soon be bolstered by two of the most anticipated games of 2014: Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire (Nov. 21).

Destiny XBO >> Destny PS4 on stand alone.?lol

Sony PR:

Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) today announced that September 2014 marked the biggest month ever for PlayStation Store revenue in the Americas, led by the launch of Destiny from Activision and Bungie. Destiny broke PlayStation Network sales records across several categories, taking the top spot for pre-orders, day one sales, and week one sales. One month after the game’s launch, engagement among PlayStation fans continues to soar, as Destiny is the most-played title on PS4 with 125 million hours of gameplay. According to Activision internal estimates, the PS4 system is the #1 platform worldwide for Destiny based on units sold through as of October 4, 2014.“ September 2014 was a record-breaking month for PlayStation’s digital business, thanks in large part to the success of Destiny,” said Eric Lempel, vice president of Sony Network Entertainment International.

“Last month’s PlayStation Store revenue increased nearly 90 percent compared with Sept. 2013. Working closely with Activision and Bungie, we wanted to make the launch of Destiny a special experience for PlayStation fans. We’re thrilled to see this high engagement from PS4 and PS3 owners.”

In addition, the PS4 sold more copies of every EA Sports game released last month than any other system and was the largest console for Destiny.

Microsoft PR:

“We believe this will be one of our biggest holiday seasons ever. We’re offering great Xbox One bundles aligned with the most anticipated game launches of the year, including ‘Assassin’s Creed Unity,’ ‘Sunset Overdrive’ and ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,’ and incredible deals for fans. Combined with blockbusters like ‘Halo: The Master Chief Collection,’ ‘Grand Theft Auto 5,’ ‘Destiny’ and ‘Forza Horizon 2,’ we are committed to making Xbox One a great place to play this holiday.”

Notes:

-Smash sold 705K copies (135K of them digitally)

-Hyrule Warriors has sold 190K (digital + physical)

-Mario Kart sold 60K copies (digital + physical), 1.2 million LTD

-Destiny is the best selling game so far this year.

-"But an even more prestigious feat was the fact that Destiny had the best launch month of all-time for any new IP."

-PS+ subscriptions have doubled since Destiny's launch.

-PlayStation Store revenue increased nearly 90% year over year.

Hardware:

PS4: Nearly triple August, best selling.VentureBeat reports this as approximately 550,000 units, though does not explicitly list this as the correct sales volume.

3DS: 140K (-40.4%)

Wii U: Up nearly 50% from August.

I say it might be closer then it has been because of some new titles coming out like Force Horizon 2 or whatever it's called.

But i fully expect the PS4 to be the best selling console of the 2 by the end of the gen. Whether that gap will be big or small, or whether MS can turn it around somehow, i don't know. I can happen, but i think the PS4 is showing signs of better sales being possible right now.

Also, you're my friend too Tormentos. I love you.

PS4 has NO games , it shouldnt be able to sell 1 unit !! Sony is the worst company ever , look at Ps1/2/3 exclusives and total support to their consoles even when they are on multibillion losses.Pathetic. And one more thing... Multiplatforms dont count as games specially with others missing them big time ( we or wii or you or U or wtf ). Ok Tormentos? Because i said so ! PS4 sucks

@Desmonic: And Xbone and PS4 as well :o

Really, the only (non PC) system the Wii U isn't better than is 3DS, and that's another Nintendo.

@Blabadon: If it's because of Smash Bros., then it won't reflect in this NPD. The NPD is for September, Smash didn't release till October 3.

@tormentos: I'm with you on this one. I know there is some "buzz" out there that the Xbox One might have won it's first month, but I don't buy it. The PS4 has been winning by so much I don't see that changing. Especially since the PS4 probably got a Destiny boost.

I just hope the 3DS, Vita and Wii U are hanging in there a little.

I think that with the white bundle, the PS4 gained more momentum in this month distancing itself from the XBone which saw a bump month due to the price drop previously.

I would have never expected this a year ago but I actually agree. I might buy a PS4 but not any time soon.

Edit:

Would I be fine with an 8GB model and an external HD or should I look for 32GB models?
