(USA Today) – The lean summer software lineup has done little to deter consumers from scooping up video game consoles, specifically the PlayStation 4.

Sales of video game hardware doubled in July, approaching $200 million for the month, according to the latest retail sales data from NPD Group.

Life-to-date sales of Microsoft’s Xbox One and the PS4 during its first nine months of availability were up nearly 80% compared to the same period of sales during the opening months of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, says NPD analyst Liam Callahan.

For the seventh consecutive month, PS4 was the top-selling video game console in the U.S. Earlier this week, Sony revealed the device crossed 10 million in global sales.
