The NPD Group has revealed that PlayStation 4 came out on top in May's console punch-up, fending off competition from Microsoft and Nintendo.

Not only that, but Sony's current-generation telly box is also the best-selling console of 2018 so far, so it's been a pretty solid month overall for the hardware giant.

Despite this, all consoles -- that is, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch -- enjoyed a great month, notching up 'all-time unit sales highs for a May month.' As such, last month had the best hardware sales for May overall since 2011.

On the software front, State of Decay 2 took the crown as the best-selling game for last month, toppling PS4 juggernauts God of War and Detroit: Become Human in the process.

Here's the full top ten:

1. State of Decay 2
2. God of War 2018
3. Detroit: Become Human
4. Far Cry 5
5. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
6. Grand Theft Auto V
7. Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition
8. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege
9. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
10. NBA 2K18
