PlayStation 4 was once again the top selling console in the U.S last month, although Battlefield Hardline pipped Bloodborne as top selling title for the month.
Bloodborne released towards the end of the month and is a PS4 exclusive, however the From Software RPG still took second slot, which is very impressive for a single platform and with the PS4 being the best-selling console of the month, it was a good one for Sony.
“We are truly honoured PlayStation 4 is the top selling console and #1 in software sales again according to NPD sales data for March 2015,” Sony said in a statement.
“PS4 remains the cumulative sales leader both globally and in the United States and we want to thank gamers worldwide for their ongoing support.”
Xbox One is also enjoying “strong growth” and continues to out-perform the Xbox 360, according to Microsoft, while Nintendo issued a statement saying hardware sales are up 60% year-on-year compared to the same time frame in 2014.
“Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Mario Kart 8 continue to sell well in their respective fifth and 11th months on the market, bringing their lifetime totals to nearly 1.6 million total units and more than 1.9 million total units, respectively,” the platform holder added.
