With market research firm NPD Group’s January report out, Sony is touting the PlayStation 4 as the best-selling console in the United States and worldwide on the whole during the month, according to a report today from GameSpot.

Though NPD Group doesn’t specifically reveal numbers, Sony said the PS4 was “the No. 1 selling game console in the US in January, (and) still No. 1 worldwide.”

In a post to the PlayStation Blog, vice president of marketing John Koller said, “PS4 was No. 1 in sales for next-gen consoles in January, nearly doubling the nearest next-gen competitor,” referring to Microsoft next-gen machine Xbox One.

The PS4 took over former top-spot holder Nintendo 3DS, which also fell behind the second-place Xbox One.

Microsoft, however, made some waves of their own in the month, as the company sold more consoles across all platforms –– including the Xbox One and Xbox 360 –– than Sony or Nintendo.

The figures come as Sony celebrated PlayStation being Australia’s “most valuable interactive entertainment brand” in 2013.

Sony Australia and New Zealand managing director Michael Ephraim called the last 12 months for PlayStation in the region “enormous,” as the PS3 topped all home console sales for the market last year.
