Though Sony earned top marks for sales of not only the PlayStation 4 hardware but also the next-gen console's software, Microsoft is claiming that the Xbox One “outpaced” its counterpart in November in the United States, according to a report today from VG 24/7.
Data from the NPD Group’s tracking of the industry last month showed Microsoft sold through 909,132 units of the Xbox One at an average of 101,000 consoles per day in the US, which the platform holder says “significantly outpaced the nearest competitor.”
However, Sony Computer Entertainment America CEO Jack Tretton said in a press release that the platform holder moved more than one million PS4 unites in the first 24 hours after launch alone in North America while praising NPD for naming system the “top selling next-gen platform for both hardware and software in November.”
“We are humbled by the passion and excitement demonstrated by gamers for PS4,” Tretton said. “Demand continues to overwhelm supply, but we’re working hard to get PS4 units into the hands of customers throughout the holiday season.”
With a week’s head start, Sony announced last week that they had pushed out a reported 2.1 million PS4 units worldwide since Nov. 15.
Microsoft, however, surmounted the 2 million Xbox One units sold mark this week. You can read more of that Examiner report by clicking here.
