  • August 2014 NPD Figures Show PlayStation 4 and Madden Leading the Charge

    For the eighth straight month, the PlayStation 4 leads the hardware sales according to the figures released today by the NPD. The exact figures on how many units were sold for either the PlayStation or Xbox were not revealed. In addition, Madden NFL 15 dominated the software sales for August 2014, surpassing Diablo III.

    Overall, gamers spent $561.3 million on new hardware and software for August 2014. This is an increase from the $521.1 million from August 2013. Hardware spending hit $196.2 million, an increase of 116% from the same period last year. Overall software sales are down 21% from 2013.

    1. Madden NFL 15 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3)
    2. Diablo III: Reaper of Souls (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3, PC)
    3. Minecraft (360, PS3)
    4. The Last of Us (PS4, PS3)
    5. Call of Duty: Ghosts (360, Xbox One, PS4, PS3, PC, Wii U)
    6. Lego Marvel Super Heroes (360, PS3, Wii U, PS4, 3DS, DS, Xbox One, Vita, PC)
    7. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare (360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One)
    8. Watch Dogs (PS4, 360, PS3, Xbox One, PC)
    9. Battlefield 4 (360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, PC)
    10. The Lego Movie Videogame (360, 3DS, PS3, Wii U, PS4, Xbox One, Vita)

    From this list it should be noted that both Madden NFL 15 and Diablo III sold the most on the PlayStation 4. This is even with there being a Madden NFL 15 Xbox One bundle. It is my understanding that the NPD figures are only for physical retail sales and do not include digital purchases.
