    May NPD arrives and you'll never guess who won

    Nah, i'm kidding. It was PS4 again.

    The new consoles also continued to show momentum as hardware sales jumped 95% over last May, led by PS4


    Publishers had been feeling the effects of next-gen software not selling fast enough to offset the declines of the previous-gen consoles, but that may now be changing, judging by The NPD Group's May US video game sales report. Total industry sales were way up, climbing 52 percent to $586 million. This was driven not only by the continued adoption of Xbox One and PS4, as hardware skyrocketed 95 percent to $187 million, but also by a sizable 57 percent increase in console software sales to $274 million (PC software brings that total up to $284 million).


    NPD noted that Sony's PS4 was the top selling console for the fifth month in a row, and while "much of May 2014's hardware growth was due to Xbox One and PS4, there was also year-over-year growth for the Wii U, and PS Vita,” said NPD analyst Liam Callahan, who pointed to the successful bundles for Mario Kart 8 on Wii U and Borderlands 2 for the PS Vita.


    Ubisoft's new hit title Watch Dogs, which sold 4 million worldwide in its first week, was atop the charts with its multiple SKUs, but Nintendo's single-SKU Mario Kart 8 was also a factor, placing second on the chart - impressive considering it's only available to Wii U's somewhat limited installed base. Sony's MLB 14: The Show and Bethesda's Wolfenstein: The New Order also helped drive industry revenues.


    “Collectively, May 2014 launches sold 800 percent more in dollar sales than May 2013 launches did their respective launch months. New launches represented 50 percent of dollar sales this month, which compared to only 9 percent for new launches in May 2013," commented Callahan.
    Here's the complete top ten list from NPD:

    Sony's take:

    Sony SVP of Brand Marketing Guy Longworth provided an internal analysis of the NPD numbers: "PlayStation continues to be the best place to play for innovative IP, 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. PS4 is the leading next-gen platform for sports, highlighted in May by the best-selling sports game, MLB 14: The Show."
    http://www.joystiq.com/2014/06/16/ma...es-month-five/

    No comment from MS.

    On the other hand, Microsoft did not yet post any comment on the official Xbox Wire site. This is the first time in which the house of Xbox does not post its own monthly take on NPD’s numbers immediately after the lifting of the embargo at 6:30 PM Eastern Time.

    Edit:

    MS speaks.

    Xbox on May sales: "Xbox One is off to the hottest start in Xbox history....We look forward to the next chapter of the new generation."

    The PR department at MS must have worked tirelessly trying to come up with that statement.

    It just might be even worse even with the price cut.

    I think MS is going to ship less than a million for the qt

    edit:http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers...s_tab_t_bsar#1

    amazon hasn't predicted the market wrong yet. We won't get how big the actual difference in sales will be but it predicts the leaders for each month. It's showing that the destiny bundle is more popular than the xbone.

    That should win the month for them.

    That mixed in with the price drop should do it. But I thought Titanfall would win them the month of release but the circumstances were different because they didn't have the kinectless unit.

    3ds outsold xbone? PS4 to xbone = 197k:77k ? so = 2.5:1 Ratio?


    Damn that's shocking especially when you factor in the retailer discounts, selling it for $399 plus kinect, plus titanfall included in the box. the "price cut" is actually a worse deal because dont get the camera or the game included so i doubt june will be any different, unless retailers that giving it away at a loss priced at $299.

    The only place MS will have a chance of winning in numbers is the US, like last generation. Sony got the other two regions secured against them.
    Playing - Tales of Vesperia (secret missions),Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3
    Awaiting - Tales of Xillia 2, Witcher 3, Xenoblade Chronicles X,Persona Q, Oreshika:Tainted Bloodlines, Tales of Zestiria, KH Birth By Sleep HD, Tales Of Hearts R and Persona 5
