Microsoft may be seeing better Xbox One sales as of late, but Sony still has the U.S. sales crown.
Sony reported today that for the 10th-straight month, more Americans bought a Playstation 4 than an Xbox One in October.
This news comes as Microsoft saw sales of its console triple week-over-week following a $50 price cut that was implemented on Nov. 2, bringing the cost of the Kinect-less Xbox One to $349 — $50 less than the PS4.
Microsoft said on Wednesday that it will have sold more than 10 million Xbox One’s to retailers “shortly.” Sony, meanwhile, reached 10 million PS4’s sold to customers — not just retailers — in August.
The NPD Group also released its monthly stats today, noting that combined sales of the Xbox One and PS4 after one year are 70 percent higher than combined first year sales totals of the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
Hardware sales were up 59 percent from one year ago, while software sales — not including digital purchases — were down 27 percent.
Here were the top 10 selling games for October:
- NBA 2K15 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3, PC)
- Super Smash Bros. for 3DS (3DS)
- The Evil Within (PS4, Xbox One, PS3, 360, PC)
