October NPD: PS4 #1 Again, NBA 2K15 Tops Software List
One of these days, the Xbox One will win a month.
But it wasn't October. The NPD results for last month are in and once again, Sony's console was once again tops in the US market.
NPD Group's Liam Callahan confirmed that overall sales across hardware, new physical software and accessories were basically flat when compared to October 2013, but the current consoles are already performing better than PS3 and Xbox 360 considering the same time frame. Right now, cumulative sales for PS4 and Xbox One are "70 percent higher than the combined first year totals of Xbox 360 and PS3."
As for the top 10 games for October, NBA 2K15 took the #1 slot, followed by Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and The Evil Within. Here's the full list:
- NBA 2K15

- The Evil Within
- Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
- Skylanders Trap Team
- FIFA 15
- Madden NFL 15
- Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor
