February 2016 NPD: PlayStation 4 was the top-selling console last month
 

 
It’s the last month before Nintendo will start making the monthly sales report more interesting. For now, Sony’s momentum continues.

PlayStation 4 was the top-selling console in the United States in February, according to data from industry-tracking firm The NPD Group that Sony shared with GamesBeat. The PS4 outperformed the Xbox One and the now-defunct Wii U. This is the fourth month in a row that Sony’s console landed in the No. 1 position on this sales chart.
Sony’s success last month makes sense considering the consoles parade of hit releases. Developer Team Ninja’s character-action game Nioh hit the system February 7. Capcom launched Resident Evil 7 with exclusive virtual reality support for the PSVR on the last day of January. And Sony capped off the month with the critically acclaimed Horizon Zero Dawn.

All of those games likely boosted sales, and Sony didn’t have to worry about too much competition because Switch didn’t launch until March 3 and Microsoft’s biggest exclusive was the real-time strategy game Halo Wars 2, which likely appeals to a smaller audience.

Bruh who is running the Xbox division over at Microsoft????


How did something so promising get crushed so thoroughly by PS4. Don't get me wrong I'm a ride or die PS4 groupie. Love playstation. But had hopes xbox was going to eventually be the future.

I really though xbox was going to do 3 revolutionary things:

1. Become Your Desktop Computer: The way they were talking about the xbox1 I literally thought it was going to be my new desktop computer with my 55 in flat screen as my new monitor.

2. New Internet Provider Again I heard and read this was in the works. Remember the whole uproar over must have your Xbox connected to the internet all the time? Well originally it was alleged that Microsoft was going into internet service game. They would be the new ISP on the block offering competitive service to AT&T, Cox, and Google. But alas....smh.

3. Your New Cable Service: Again, similar to what playstation vue is for the PS4, where is the Xbox or Microsoft version. Sling tv doesn't count. I have Vue and love it so far. Xbox continues to lag behind. Where you at Bill Gates?


All three of these things combined were part of the promise that Xbox 1 would replace every entertainment device you have setup next to your tv. "One box does it all", they said. Smh.


As has been said many times before,.......Xbox lost.

Xbox one does all that you listed. I don't recall them ever saying they were going to start up thier own ISP. (I could be wrong but don't recall this), and the Xbox one can be used as your cable set top box. It does run MS edge browser.

I have cable, I'm not talking about running a cable cord into your xbox1 to view service through it. Like I had Cox cable and I ran a cable line into the xbox1 to view my cable. Not talking about that. Where's xbox1 vue? Like where is the response to ps4's version. Ps4 Vue is the cable and is provided by ps4 through digital internet service.

As far as the Xbox1 taking over as a desktop.
Back before the release of both systems, the E3 promos for the Xbox we're preaching how that they werent just going after the Ps4 market but the PC/internet and cable markets as well. Basically Xbox vs the world.

This was Microsoft's goal when they first came up with the first xbox, that it would eventually be the COMPLETE source of any and all digital entertainment through the net. Thus the original idea of having your xbox1 always connected to the internet

Looking Back its easy to see and realized that either they oversold/overpromised or they bit off more than they could chew. Not gonna lie I was wavering on Ps4 when I heard all of this. My friends at work were hyping the hell out of this. Alas, they too were disappointed and eventually came over to ps4.

Xbox games coming to PC is what they were referring too and that's what's happening now, with the play anywhere.

I don't know where MS's Vue is but they could still be working on it?

Im just saying almost everything they said has happened already or is being worked on, probably taking longer then they wanted/expected it too. But the Xbox one is pretty much an all in one box now.

Sony's wave right now is unreal.

The amount of Triple A games that have over 8.5 scores across critics is fu*king stupid. As a gamer, I finish one game and literally the next dope game is already releasing or has been released. I went from Nioh, to For Honor, to Horizon, to Nier and they have more titles coming up. And im just talking about since Feb started.

They're on pace to beat the Ps2. And with numbers like that you gotta at least be curious as to wtf is going on with Sony because they're about to hit a nuke off this k!ll streak.

You're absolutely right.

Uncharted? Final Fantasy 15? No mans Sky? Last Guardian?
