Xbox One Ahead of PS4 in December Sales While Call of Duty: Ghosts Sells Most in Software

By   /   2 years ago

As is the case with every month, the NPD sales data for December 2013 is out now, and before you read on let me tell you it is amusing.

To start things off, Microsoft issued a statement alongside NPD, announcing that Xbox One was the top-selling home console for the US market in December.

It was also the top grossing hardware for the whole year of 2013; thanks to the hiked up price of $499.

While the Xbox One sold 908,000 units in the month, Xbox 360 managed to ship 643,000 units too – this makes Xbox 360 the third most sold console for the period.

Of course, it also makes it the top-selling last generation hardware too.

Brace yourselves; Nintendo is back in the game because 3DS topped the overall hardware sales for December as well as the whole year. Furthermore, according to NPD, December was the highest month of sales so far.

Not letting their arch rival, Sony to name anything, Microsoft claimed, “50 percent of the combined software, hardware, and accessories spend in the US.” This meant total revenue of $1.39 billion from Xbox One and Xbox 360 combined.

The total amount spent by consumers in December was “just under $2.4 billion.”

Now don’t get too offended if you have always rooted for Sony, though Xbox One led the sales for the second month of the console launch, “PS4’s two-month total makes it the best-selling console during the two-month launch window.”

If you look at the worldwide sales figures, they go in favor of Sony too; so far, Xbox One has managed to sell 3 million units while PlayStation 4 has sold 4.2 million units.

Moving on to games, the top seller for December was Call of Duty Ghosts closely followed by Battlefield 4.

Here is a list of the best sellers for December:

  1. Call of Duty: Ghosts (Activision)
  2. Battlefield 4 (EA)
  3. Just Dance 2014 (Ubisoft)
  4. Madden NFL 25 (EA)

  7. Grand Theft Auto V (Rockstar Games)
  8. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (Warner Bros.)
  9. FIFA 14 (EA)
  10. Skylanders SWAP Force (Activision)
