    PS4 also top selling console.

    The NPD Group has released its video game sales data for January, and the PS4 was #1 in sales for next-gen consoles.

    Overall, January NPDs showed a sharp decline in software sales leading to lower industry spend (due to lack of new releases). Total retail sales were down 1% year over year, and retail software sales are down 26% year over year (normalized).

    Unsurprisingly, the PS4 was the #1 selling game console in the US in January, but the Xbox One took the lead on the US game sales for the month.

    Here's the data:

    - Software.

    - Hardware.

    - Microsoft.

    - Sony.

    - Nintendo.

      that's not entirely correct though, digital sales are not included in these figures so chances are the adjusted figures are actually higher, that might also explain how ms can claim to have higher software sales than ps4 as well.
