Thought I'd share the below with you all-
New data from The NPD Group and GfK Chart-Track shows that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have achieved a total install base of approximately 32 million in North America and Europe as of September 30th 2015. When compared to last gen, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 had a total install base of 22 million at the same point in time when you align launches
The numbers are based on hardware sales from North America (United States & Canada) and Europe (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom). The U.S accounts for more than 50% of the next gen install base in North America and Europe.
The NPD Group & GfK Chart-Track noted that physical software sales for the past 9 months ending September 30th 2015 are down 8% year on year in North America and Europe, however the decline in revenue has been offset thanks to the increase in digitally distributed games, including full-game downloads, add-on content, and free-to-play games. Digital gaming revenues have increased 21% year on year during the same period with the primary drivers being micro-transactions and consumer purchases of full games via digital channels.
