Extending the streak to four straight months, the NPD announced today that the PlayStation 4 was #1 in console sales throughout North America during August 2015.

In a statement sent to Games Industry, a Sony spokesperson revealed that the PS4 was tops in both hardware and software:

We would like to thank our fans and partners for their ongoing support of PlayStation and for making PS4 the top selling console and #1 in software sales in North America in August. We continue to demonstrate our commitment to delivering the best content line-up with the launch of first-party exclusives like Until Dawn and third-party titles like Madden NFL 16, which sold more on PS4 than any other platform.

In August we also saw the most successful beta in PS4 history with Call of Duty: Black Ops III, marking a significant milestone in our new partnership with Activision. We look forward to furthering momentum with the launch of Destiny: The Taken King next week.

While we don’t quite know where the Xbox One was in relation to PS4 sales, Microsoft did say, “Xbox One continued to gain momentum in August, with sales in the U.S. up 26 percent over August 2014.”

Aside from April 2015, the PS4 has won every single month so far this year, according to the NPD.

You can check out the rest of the August 2015 NPD report over here, which reveals Madden NFL 16 as the best-selling game of the month.

Do you think the PS4 can end up winning 11 out of 12 months in 2015?
