Ahead of this afternoon's release of NPD sales data for May 2015, Sony has issued a comment on them, announcing that the PlayStation 4 was the top-selling console in the US last month.
Following a month in which the Xbox One came out on top, the PS4 returned to the top spot that it's occupied more often than not since its launch in November 2013.
"As we head into E3, we would like to thank gamers for making PS4 the top-selling console and the leader in software sales in the U.S. in May," a Sony spokesperson said in a statement. "PS4 continues to be the cumulative sales leader in the US and globally with more than 20 million consoles already in the market. We are truly humbled by this success and we look forward to sharing what's next for PS4 at our E3 press conference on June 15."
There's not yet any word from Microsoft or Nintendo on how their respective platforms performed in May, but stay tuned for anything they share, as well as the NPD Group's report, which we'll be updating this story with later today.
