NPD Sales for November shows large increase in current generation console sales

Hardware sales for November 2015 reached $1.12bn in the U.S last month, that's up 11 per cent compared to the same period last year. The reason for such a big rise was mainly due to the 14 per cent increase in console hardware revenue, with PS4 coming out on top, followed by the Xbox One and Wii U.

“After 25 months, the combined sales for the PS4 and the XBO are 47 percent higher than the combined sales for 25 months of PS3 and Xbox 360 hardware sales,” NPD's Liam Callahand said.

As far as software goes, it was a great month for Call of Duty: Black Ops III, as the series had its best November since 2013. Fallout 4 also had a great month, as did Star Wars Battlefront, Madden NFL 16 and NBA 2K16.

Current generation software sales increased by 37 percent, which largely offset the decrease in spending for last generation consoles, which decreased by 60 percent. Of course digtal sales and bundles games (such as those for the Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Star Wars PS4 bundles) are not counted on the software chart below, otherwise it could have looked a lot different.

Top Software November (U.S Physical Sales - Not including bundled games):

1.) Call of Duty: Black Ops III - (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3, PC | Actvision Blizzard)
2.) Fallout 4 (PS4, Xbox One, PC | Bethesda Softworks)
3.) Star Wars: Battlefront (PS4, Xbox One, PC | Electronic Arts)
4.) Madden NFL 16 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3 | Electronic Arts)
5.) NBA 2K16 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3 | Take-Two)
6.) FIFA 16 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3 | Electronic Arts)
7.) Need For Speed (PS4, Xbox One | Electronic Arts)
8.) Halo 5: Guardians (Xbox One | Microsoft)
9.) Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate (PS4, Xbox One, PC | Ubisoft)
10.) Just Dance 2016 (Wii, Wii U, 360, Xbox One, PS4, PS3 | Ubisoft)

These results just go to prove that consoles are as strong as ever.
