US Charts: January; PS4 back on top despite record sales for Xbox One


Dying Light was the best-selling game in the US in January 2015, according to the NPD group, while PS4 was also the top selling console once again.

"PlayStation 4 was the top selling console in January, it and remains the cumulative leader in the US, according to NPD data,” Sony said in a response statement.



“Since launch in November 2013, 18.5 million PS4 units and 81.8 million software units have been sold through to consumers worldwide.”

This is means that since launch in the U.S, Microsoft has led hardware sales for just November and December, although these are very important months for sales.

There was no word from Nintendo.

On the software side, Dying Light dominated with the highest first month sales for a game in teh survival horror genre.

“The sales of January 2015 launch titles were up over 200 percent versus January 2014, with Dying Light being the major new release of the month. If January 2015 releases performed in line with January 2014 releases, overall software sales would have decreased by 4 percent.”
