January NPD: PS4 back at number one


Dying Light is to die for

After being knocked off the top spot as the best-selling console for the past two months, Sony’s PS4 regained the much-coveted sales marker for the month of January. Not only is it back at number one, but it also continues its overall lead in the U.S.

The Xbox One fell back to the second spot, despite the momentum gained the previous two months from price cuts. As for the Wii U, eh, they sold some to someone, I’m sure.
