Xbox One had a nice streak going for it in the U.S but PS4 sales have put an end to Microsoft’s short reign. According to data released by NPD, PS4 sales beat Xbox One in the month of November.
PlayStation 4 also went past 50 million units worldwide. It is safe to say that PS4 may very well go past PS2 lifetime sales in the next few years. It is a massive achievement to reach 50 million units after only 3 years in the market.
This does not mean that Xbox One did poorly in November. The console saw strong sales and Xbox Live fans enjoyed great new deals on the official store.
We have seen strong momentum for Xbox One since announcing the new Xbox One S at E3 in June. That momentum continued in November as gaming consoles were once again among the most sought-after products to buy over Black Friday weekend.
In addition, we saw record engagement among Xbox One owners on Xbox Live as fans enjoyed new games and great deals. In fact, the total players online on Sunday, Nov. 27 was up 40 percent compared to last year
Sony is yet to share hard numbers for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. Surely, the release of PlayStation 4 Pro had a hand in Sony beating Microsoft in the month of November.
PlayStation 4 is available for $299 while the new Pro model is listed for $399. Sony is expecting PS4 sales to hit 60 million units by March 2017.
