Sony’s PlayStation 4 is, so far, the leader in the gaming industry, thanks in large part to its outstanding design, affordable price tag, and appeal to the hard-core gaming segment that wants as many high-quality games as possible. Still, this generation is young and there’s still a long way to go before Sony’s console officially takes the top spot in total sales. And the thing that will help the PlayStation 4 achieve that goal will be its games library.

It's that time again -- NPD's latest monthly console sales numbers are in, and with them comes some bragging rights for both Microsoft and Sony, though the latter of the two was named victor in terms of console sales.
