Sony’s Guy Longworth has responded to the news that PlayStation 4 sales surpassed those of Xbox One in the U.S. last month.
Speaking in a statement released overnight, Longworth championed PS4 as the go-to platform for new IP, with both Watch Dogs and Wolfenstein: The New Order bagging the most sales on Sony’s latest home console.
“PlayStation continues to be the best place to play for innovative intellectual property, as PS4 was the preferred platform for May’s biggest releases, including Watch Dogs and Wolfenstein: The New Order, and held four of the top five spots for next-gen software sales,” said Longworth. “PS4 is the leading next-gen platform for sports, highlighted in May by the best-selling sports game, MLB 14 The Show.”
PS4’s triumph in May marked the system’s fifth consecutive month it has outsold Microsoft’s latest home console. Both formats launched in November 2013, with PS4 having sold over seven million units to date.
