Sony and Microsoft have always been trying to one up each other when it comes to exclusive games, features, internal specs of the console, sales, etc., but one tends to stay just one step ahead of the other in sales even if it’s for a month or two. In October, Microsoft was on top for sales and in November it was Sony’s turn.
Both companies offered fantastic deals and bundles, but of course with those offers, one had to sell more than the other. Sony offered a price drop on their console bringing it down to $300 and offered games with it. One such bundle was the Uncharted Nathan Drake Collection, which came with a PlayStation 4 with 500GB storage, a controller, and single player campaigns for Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. Another bundle came with Call of Duty: Black Ops III or Star Wars Battlefront Standard Edition. Microsoft had deals of their own like the Rise of the Tomb Raider bundle, but unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to pass Sony in sales.
Sony’s marketing boss Eric Lempel even provided a statement about Sony outselling Microsoft.
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.
