Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One are both off to a good start and they have Nintendo’s Wii U flop to thanks for better than expected sales.
However, there can only be one winner and it appears that the PS4 will take this round. According to a new report from NPD Group, Sony’s new console is outselling the Xbone by a 2-to-1 margin, which sounds very impressive indeed. NPD took a look at the best selling games in January and it quickly concluded that PS4 versions are outselling Xbox One versions by a wide margin.
Microsoft is still not saying how many Xbox One units were sold last month, but Sony claims PS4 sales are much stronger. NPD’s report concluded that PS4 sales are nearly double those of the Xbox One. There are still no exact figures, just ballpark estimates, but Sony seems to have the upper hand.
