For the month of November 2015; Sony’s Playstation 4 outsold Microsoft’s Xbox One, Sony has announced.
Speaking with GamesBeat; Sony’s Marketing Boss Eric Lempel announced the lead. Despite a strong line-up at Xbox One’s disposal, it seems like an official price drop and several deals bundling a couple of games with the console for as low as $299.99 helped Sony achieve the goal.
Microsoft, on the other hand, had Gears of War bundle, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Halo 5: Guardians, but was unable to match Playstation 4’s success.
According to Lempel, the Black Friday sales were strongest in the history of Playstation as well as November being biggest month ever for Playstation Store:
PlayStation 4 is the top-selling console in the United States during the month of November, according to NPD. We have hit several key milestones over the last few weeks. Prior to Black Friday, we announced we have sold through more than 30.2 million PS4s to consumers around the world and that PS4 continues to exhibit the fastest growth in PlayStation hardware history. In addition, Black Friday sales were the strongest in PlayStation history demonstrating more people game now than ever before. We are also pleased to announce November was the biggest month ever for PlayStation Store indicating a strong digital marketplace complementing healthy retail sales.
