According to the research conducted by western market research companies, NPD Group and GfK Chart-Track, by the end of September, the installed capacity of next generations’ consoles—Xbox One and PS4—has reached 32 million.

We can tell from the charts that compared with the figure at this time last year, 17 million has increased. And the United States takes over 50% of the shares.

Attention: The target regions are North America (the U.S. and Canada) and Europe (Austria, Belgium, Danmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and UK).

 

The report released before shows that the installed capacity of old generation’s consoles (Xbox 360 and PS3) was 22 million. Now the total capacity of Xbox 360 and PS3 is 124 million. Next generation’s consoles are possible to go beyond this number.

Since the launches in 2013, next generation’s consoles like Xbox One and PS4 gradually replace their predecessors. And, at the same time, Microsoft and SONY both have plans to promote their consoles to another level. On the other hand, the coming of ‘Fallout 4’, ‘Star Wars: Battlefront’, ‘Call of Duty 12’ at the end of this year, will definitely fuel the sales of consoles.

Besides, NPD figures out that the sales volume of substantial software has decreased by 8%, which is caused by digital downloads including the games themselves, bonuses and free games.
