After facing increased pressure from the Microsoft Xbox One to end 2014, it looks like the Sony PlayStation 4 has climbed back atop the gaming console world. It wouldn't be surprising to hear Microsoft lost its sales lead after holiday promotional pricing ended in January.

"PlayStation 4 was the top selling console in January and remains the cumulative leader in the US according to NPD data," said a Sony Computer Entertainment America spokesperson. "Since launch in November 2013, 18.5 million PS4 units and 81.8 million software units have been sold through to consumers worldwide."

 

The software industry earned $625.7 million revenue in January, a slight five percent drop from $662.1 million year-over-year - with Dying Light, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and Grand Theft Auto V leading the way.
