"The combined hardware install base of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One," said Liam Callahan, from The NPD Group, in a statement to Polygon, "is close to 60 percent higher than the cumulative hardware totals for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 at the same point in their lifecycles (after 15 months)."

Software sales increased 5 percent year-over-year, with current generation software sales 74 percent higher after the same time frame compared to the Xbox 360 and PS3.

Console gamers can enjoy powerful hardware and a wider collection of game titles with the Xbox One and PS4 game consoles - with Microsoft and Sony fighting for new customers in 2015.
