But year-on-year hardware sales declined by 23 per cent in September in the US

Xbox One and PS4 are up 40% on last-gen sales

Remember when everyone was saying that consoles were dying and no-now would be the next-generation machines? They were wrong.

NPD has revealed that combined sales of the PS4 and Xbox One some 23 months into their lives are 40 per cent higher than the totals achieved by their predecessors the PS3 and Xbox 360 in their first 23 months in the US.

However, NPD also revealed that its year-on-year numbers revealed a hardware decline in the US in September, dipping 23 per cent. Microsoft has confirmed a year-on-year sales increase for Xbox One, meaning PS4 must have been down annually.
