September NPD: PS4 Tops Again, Sports Games Go 1-2

PlayStation 4 continues to roll in the U.S.

The September NPD results are in and once again, Sony's console was the #1 piece of gaming hardware in the country.

In response to this continued success, Sony offered the following statement in a press release:

"As we kick off the holiday season, we would like to take a moment to thank fans for making PlayStation 4 the best-selling console and #1 in software sales in September. PlayStation 4 was the number one console for NBA 2K16, Madden NFL 16, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and FIFA 16. Including the highly successful limited edition console bundle, PS4 also led retail sales for Destiny: The Taken King."

NPD Group analyst Liam Callahan added that all 8th-generation consoles enjoyed double-digit growth when comparing sales on a week-by-week basis between August and September 2015. Furthermore, combined PS4 and Xbox One sales are currently tracking 40 percent higher than the combined 23-month totals for the PS3 and 360. The only downside is the year-over-year comparison, as September 2014 outstripped this year's month by 23 percent. Don't forget that Destiny first launched in September last year.

As for the top-performing games for the month, sports titles won the day:

  • NBA 2K16
  • Madden NFL 16
  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
  • FIFA 16
  • Destiny: The Taken King
  • Super Mario Maker
  • Disney Infinity 3.0
  • Mad Max
  • NHL 16
  • Minecraft

Just remember that the NPD numbers don't count digital sales, a fact that's becoming more glaring with every passing month.
