NPD: PS4 Leads In December, FF XV Has A Great Debut

Sony's PS4 was tabbed by the NPD industry sales trackers as the number-one selling console for the month, holding back the Xbox One. Microsoft's system lead last month, and sold 10 percent more as compared to the same time last year.

Regarding the overall hardware category, despite the existence of the PS4 Pro and Xbox One S, the hardware category declined in 2016 to $3.7 billion compared to 2015 – that's a 24 percent shrink. Also factoring in is that consoles sold for less on average, but this didn't make consumers any more likely to buy them. Consumers bought seven percent fewer units.

On the other hand, the Nintendo 3DS handheld grew two percent in the month as compared a year ago – the seventh straight month of year-on-year growth.
