New data collected by research firm Superdata claims PlayStation hardware is generating significantly more digital revenue than Xbox in the US. Superdata's research, which pulls data from 37m “paying online gamers" and focuses on the performance of the top ten digital console games of last month, shows 63 per cent of the related revenue coming from PS3 and PS4 consoles.
Xbox 360 and Xbox One occupy the remaining 37 per cent, while PS4 alone claimed 43 per cent of the total.
GTA V was on top of what is the first of Superdata's monthly chart releases moving forward, with an estimated $31.8m in online sales during January. The company notes that all figures account for full-game downloads and DLC purchases.
The report also placed an annual total value of $49bn on the console digital download market.
"The digital games market now constitutes the majority of revenues in interactive entertainment,” the report reads. “As consumer spending continues to shift away from retail, the landscape of top performing games is shifting with it.”
