US Charts: 3DS is top selling consoles, PS4 outsells Xbox One

Last month's U.S charts are in, showing the Nintendo 3DS as the top selling console and bringing news that the PS4 outsold the Xbox One once more, despite Microsoft keeping its price cut in place.

Sales of 3DS grew 153% year-on-year, thanks to the release of the New 3DS XL. The new system managed 150,000 units sold in its first week of release, and in total 3DS hardware were in the region of 400,000.

Once again the PS4 was the number one home console in both hardware and software in February, although Microsoft was still pleased, saying that the Xbox One had record sales in February, selling 84% more hardware sales than January.

As for software, The Legend of Zelda was the top seller for Nintendo 3DS, while Evolve, Dying Light, Call of Duty and GTA V made up the top five. The Order 1886 managed an appearance at number eight following its debut.

Here's the U.S top 10
  1. The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D (3DS)
  2. Evolve (Xbox One, PS4, PC)
  3. Dying Light (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
  4. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
  5. Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3)
  6. NBA 2K15 (PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
  7. Dragon Ball: Xenoverse (PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360)
  8. Minecraft (Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4)
  9. The Order: 1886 (PS4)
  10. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (3DS)
This month also marks the first time since the launch of the PS4 and Xbox One that the top 10 console software SKUs were all from eighth generation consoles, which makes it obvious that people are now moving on from PS3 and Xbox 360 to the new consoles. Xmas 2016 could be a big one for both companies.

New 3ds is worth upgrading - good to see the Ps4 still doing well and good Microsoft the Xbox price cut has boosted its sales - still nothing on there enough yet though to tempt me regardless of the price drop...
