For a fifth straight month the PlayStation 4 was the #1 selling console in the United States, the NPD revealed today as part of their September 2015 report, which totaled sales from August 30 – October 3.

In a statement from Sony Computer Entertainment America today, they have revealed that the PS4 was not only #1 in hardware sales, but software sales as well:

As we kick off the holiday season, we would like to take a moment to thank fans for making PlayStation 4 the best-selling console and #1 in software sales in September. PlayStation 4 was the number one console for NBA 2K16, Madden NFL 16, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and FIFA 16. Including the highly successful limited edition console bundle, PS4 also led retail sales for Destiny: The Taken King.

On the digital side of things, September was the highest grossing month in history:

It was also a very strong month for PlayStation Network with September being the highest grossing month in PlayStation Store history. From PlayStation exclusives like the recently launched Uncharted Collection to partnerships with Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Star Wars Battlefront, we are committed to our community and to making PlayStation the best place to play this holiday.

Considering that the PS4’s price just dropped to $349.99, do you think it will win October 2015 as well?
