    June 2014 NPD

    http://www.joystiq.com/2014/07/17/ju...y-106-percent/

    June was a big month for the gaming industry, according to the NPD, as hardware sales shot up by more than 100 percent, and collective sales of hardware, software and accessories grew by 24 percent.

    "The 106 percent increase in hardware sales was lifted entirely by console hardware sales, which were up by over 200 percent," notes NPD analyst Liam Callahan. Sony claims the PlayStation 4 was yet again the highest-selling console (for the sixth consecutive month), and Microsoft says that the Kinect-less Xbox One doubled its sales in June. Nintendo's Wii U has experienced a 48 percent growth in hardware sales for the first half of 2014, a feat the company attributes primarily to the success of Mario Kart 8. Despite a decline in overall portable console sales, the 3DS saw a 55 percent increase in sales over May, according to Nintendo.

    Though Mario Kart 8 has been very successful, it did not take the top software sales spot for June.

    The NPD claims that honor goes to Ubisoft's Watch Dogs. Mario Kart 8 fills the number two spot, while Minecraft's console iteration, EA Sports UFC and FIFA 14 round out the remainder of the top five. "In terms of software titles, many of the top games in June 2014 mirrored those of May 2014, with six of the same games ranking in the top ten," Callahan stated. "Three of these top ten games were also new launches from May 2014 (Watch Dogs, Mario Kart 8, andWolfenstein: The New Order), indicating the weakness of new launches in June."

    You'll find the NPD's list of the top selling software for June 2014 below.


    1. Watch Dogs (PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PC)

    2. Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)

    3. Minecraft (Xbox 360, PS3)

    4. EA Sports UFC (PS4, Xbox One)

    5. FIFA 14 (PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, Vita)

    6. NBA 2K14 (Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, PC)

    7. Wolfenstein: The New Order (PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PC)

    8. Call Of Duty: Ghosts (Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Wii U, PC)

    9. Tomodachi Life (3DS)

    10. Grand Theft Auto 5 (Xbox 360, PS3)
    360 Watch Dogs outsold X1?

    edit: 360 versions of NBA 2K14 and CoD: Ghosts outsold all other versions. Impressive.

    PS4 will likely win the entire 2014 pretty easily, the only real competition coming from Halo.

    Ruh Roh, MS caught lying again.

    More confusing, the data released yesterday by Xbox isn't #NPD, it was internal sales surveys. So we can't even compare "more than doubled"

    I think the "more than doubled" is likely to be true.

    However, if MS can't take a month when they've had a $100 price drop (and pent-up sales from May), they had better settle into second place.

    Yeah, it isn't a lie. They said straight up in their pre-NPD announcement that it was "internal data". I do wonder what the actual NPD numbers were if MS decided to go with their own and flat-out ignored the NPD for the first time.....ever?

    Saw someone mention about the numbers MS used may have come from VGChartz and surprise surprise if you add them together.

    7th Jun - 22,486
    14th Jun - 38,210
    21st Jun - 43,426
    28th Jun - 40,104

    144,226

    Note: That is missing beginning and end of June.
    Add in those missing dates and you get MS numbers

    June 2014 NPD

    Double the previous month where people didnt buy the x1 awaiting June's price cut is not a feat. Sales just went back to pre-price cut announcement (they had dropped to around 77k in May in light of the incoming price cut)

    PS4 still #1 in HW sales.

    Xbox actually did more than double.



    Data from this month’s NPD report has leaked, revealing US hardware sales for all platforms during the month of June.
    The PlayStation 4 beat out all systems with 269,000 units sold. Xbox One came in second place having sold 197,000 units.
    Other notable figures include Wii U with 140,000 units, 3DS with 152,000 units, and PlayStation Vita with 15,000 units.

    The source is a shady image from thuway. take with a grain of salt, probably whittled it up in excel himself from the neogaf npd thread guesses[the guesses are exactly 197k]. Unless there is a official press release, or a leak by an actual news outlet, ignore this dip$#@!.
    You can't be serious with the 30 megabyte signature... ~ Staff

    Maths is biased! It keeps telling me the PS4 is 50% more powerful than XboxOne!
    Great song, should have more views :'(

    I'm loving that xbone is being outsold in MS's strongest market. It's going to force MS to not get lazy

    didn't 360 outsell the PS3 for like a consecutive 33 months or so? maybe even more. i thought that was pretty impressive. i wonder if Sony can do the same...but i kinda doubt it because Xbox is still popular in the states...it just needs a little push. i'm thinking MS is going to probably go neck-to-neck or possibly outsell it in winter.

    no?

    how much of the 33 months were the price of ps3 equal to x360? just wondering if that was due to x360 being cheaper than ps3 for a really long time?

    if ps4 continues to outsell XONE then that's really something

    Depends on what kind of lightning MS' packing. Don't know what halo, gears and rising dead will do for Xbox this time around.

    Wishlist: Jade Cocoon Reboot, Oni Reboot, the next JRPG, Wasteland 2 [coming soon!]
    SotC 2, Fallout 4, next Obsidian Fallout, Project Eternity, Uncharted 4, Divinity [NEW!]
    ...
    [South Park: Stick of Truth is pure gaming bliss!]

    What logic are you using? 360 only sold because it came out a year earlier and it was cheaper. There was no competition for it and Live had no rival and owned the COD crowd.This time there is no reason to buy an Xbox and PSN is the preferred online service and took the COD crowd away.PS2 and the Wii sold better on the US than the 360 anyway so MS does not have the most success in the US in any generation. Most 360 owners had PS2s the generation before.

    I certainly wouldn't bet on it. Everyone got a boost in june. I don't think [MS]praying to the first person shooter gods are going to save them in nov and dec;halo collection, battle field, call of duty. Whatever reputation they had is now tarnished. MS knows this and they've been sweating bullets ever since Tvtvtv;drm. They have to get people to not like the ps4 and that's going to be impossible unless they somehow make an exclusive i.p on the level of Grand theft or call of duty.

    april: 115k

    May: 77k

    June: 190k

    ---sidenote---MS has only moved around 550k xbones in the past 3 months. 60% of their sales comes from the states.

    it wasn't just the beginning, 360 got their hardware setup right. then Live was a big hit, then they had the better OS...AND it was cheaper...AND it had more support for the first 2-3 years.

    for each their own. i'm enjoying the extra support PS4 is getting due to being more successful and easier to develop for.
