Remember when everyone was saying that consoles were dying and no-now would be the next-generation machines? They were wrong.
NPD has revealed that combined sales of the PS4 and Xbox One some 23 months into their lives are 40 per cent higher than the totals achieved by their predecessors the PS3 and Xbox 360 in their first 23 months in the US.
However, NPD also revealed that its year-on-year numbers revealed a hardware decline in the US in September, dipping 23 per cent. Microsoft has confirmed a year-on-year sales increase for Xbox One, meaning PS4 must have been down annually. Not that it stopped Sony’s machine outselling its rival again in September.
"Contrary to past months, [year-on-year] hardware sales declines were seen across 8th generation consoles, 7th generation consoles, and portables,” NPD said. "The majority of hardware platforms increased their sales from August 2015 to September 2015 when comparing sales on a per-week basis.
“All 8th generation consoles experienced double-digit growth when comparing sales on a per-week basis."
