It has been announced by Sony that the PlayStation 4 was the best selling console in June, beating the Xbox One and the Wii U.
The stats were recorded by the industry-tracking firm The NPD Group who shared the data with Sony and GamesBeat. Sony has revealed that the release of Batman: Arkham Knight had a hand in helping them secure this victory.
“PlayStation 4 was the top-selling console in the United States in June due to the overwhelming popularity of the Batman: Arkham Knight PS4 bundles,” a Sony spokesperson told GamesBeat. “PlayStation 4 also led software sales in June.”
Batman: Arkham Knight was arguably the biggest game to be released in June. Sony had a deal with Warner Bros that allowed them to release a special Arkham Knight bundle which included a Batman themed PS4 and the game. No doubt many people were tempted by a Batman themed PS4.
