PS4 Tops Xbox One In February 2017 US Sales

Sony's console came out on top for the second month of the year.

478 Comments

Extending its win streak another month, Sony's PlayStation 4 was the top-selling home console in the United States for February, according to NPD data released today.

Sony did not have a statement to share, but a representative confirmed that the PS4 was the No. 1 overall home console in the US in terms of sales for February.

No Caption Provided

In its own statement, Microsoft said global Xbox One game hours in February jumped 11 percent year-over-year, while global unique multiplayer users reached 35 percent-plus growth compared to last year. Xbox marketing boss Mike Nichols called out Halo Wars 2, For Honor, and Grand Theft Auto IV (in backwards compatibility) as helping drive engagement on Xbox One during the month.

A week from today, the NPD Group will announce the top-selling games for February 2017. We'll report back with more details as they become available.

I'm starting to think it's not a 4k bluray player, or tv inputs, or BC of last gen games that sell consoles, but in fact, games. Amazing a multi-billion dollar company can't figure that out.

@joshrmeyer: I'd say it has to do more with hype and momentum. Look at the switch....it only has one decent game at launch and has lots of hardware issues,but people are buying them up and hardly any game sites are covering the hardware problems. Demand is what sells consoles, and the ps4 is in greater demand than xb1. The ps4 is just a beast it's selling great. It's not fair to compare the xb1 sales when it's getting whooped in every other market but north america. They aren't doing bad though 8 to 10 million consoles a year is actually very good. If the wii u had those numbers the switch wouldn't be a thing right now.

@joshrmeyer: Microsoft is doing fine. Thanks for showing concern, and I'm sure you'll be relieved to know that their console is selling fine too and guess what? It plays every single one of the best selling games of 2016. Whoda thunk it.

@sealionact: "best selling games" because they're multiplat... half of those game sales goes to ps4 and the other half to xbox and pc. Did uncharted 4 not break the "best selling games of 2016"? I guess "selling fine" is a debatable subject. I guess if you take away the competition aka who's taking away sales from you, then yeah, it's doing great.

@joshrmeyer: No, Uncharted didn't make the top 10 ... posted it somewhere on this thread. Selling fine, as in selling at a faster rate than the 360 - a console that was an undisputed success (reliability aside!). It's only because PS4 sales are surprising even Sony, that critics are suggesting X1 is underachieving.

@sealionact: Yeah xbox one has sold about 400,000 more units than the 360 in the time frame. Not to shabby I guess. Here's a thought to consider also: Since 2005 when 360 was released until now, there's been 900,000,000 more people added to this planet.

@joshrmeyer: MS is not a gaming company. The gaming division is not MS as a whole so if one division that is not nearly as valuable as the other branch is doing ok that does not mean they can't just ask the MS CEO for millions whenever the hell they feel like it. They need to manage with their own resources from the gaming division.

@tarheelsforever: no they look the same they arent remasters.They don't do anything to the graphics. I'm glad I bought most games last Gen on 360 right now I have 248 games ready to download and play from last gen. While most run at better framerates a small percentage do run on par or worst than on 360.

Most games run worst at first but then get patched up later. Like the mass effect games. They ran like crap on xb1 at first but now they run better than they used to on 360. Just send a complaint to ms and they'll look into it.

It's also hard to complain when it's free.

@neoistheone: thanks for the reply. i may get a one eventually. ive always been a Playstation guy, and probably always will be, but unlike these fanboy types, i want all the consoles to succeed. none of our gaming platforms, even PC, would be nearly as good without good competition.

@neoistheone: Actually, with the change to a more standard architecture in the PS4 from the Cell architecture of the PS3, it is more likely that a PS5 would and could be reverse compatible.

@bryanweary: If not, then you need to pay a fee to play PS4 games on PSNow.

Let's get real here, we can all agree BC is nice to have, but If I buy a PS5, it's because I want to play PS5 games not PS4. There could be times where I feel like going back to playing older games and that's when BC becomes important of not bringing out an old system but still if I kept 200+ PS4 games, I think I would keep my PS4 system as well.

Everyone can agree that BC is a good feature to have, but not everyone will care the same for it.

@drprophecy: Not disagreeing or even saying anything different from what you stated. I was just pointing out the reason for no BC on PS4. I am also of the mindset that if I want to play old games, I'll break out the old system. But yes, BC is a nice feature to have.

@NeonicTrash: I don't understand this "charging to play games they already own" argument. Why would you still have old games for a system you no longer have, when the new one was never guaranteed to play them? If you have the old games, shouldn't you still have the old system to play them? Don't get me wrong, BC is a nice feature, and I can understand why some would want to save space with less systems on their shelves.

@sodapoppimpski: it's true. If the Xbox had full Japanese support like Nintendo and Sony then they'd probably have a few million more consoles sold. The games would still tank but it would make those Anime kids happy. But then again that's what the ps4 is for. They have that emo hair genre on lock down.

@joshrmeyer: I agree games do move consoles and Sony did release some nice games and I own both PS 4 and an Xbox One S. However, MS apparently not too worried about PS 4 for some reason.

@lonewolf1044: If the gap keeps widening, which it seems to be. MS will have no choice but to cut down the xbox division's budget. Which is bad for everyone. People keep saying xbox is way behind ps4 in sales because of mattick. But look at last gen... 360 released a year before ps3, had great games and sold well. Ps3 caught up and now passed the sales of 360 with a price drop of their original $599, and great exclusives. That's what I'm saying MS needs to do, and as snowman pointed out, they may have something planned for E3.

@joshrmeyer: PS3 caught up? 360 led it for pretty much the duration of the generation. Ps3 sales just barely passed 360, and towards the very end of the primary lifespan of those systems right before this gen launched. And 360's software sales were still higher.

@NeonicTrash: You answered your own question lol. And yes, it caught up and passed 360 sales worldwide. I'm pretty sure 360 dominated the U.S. if that matters to you, which it doesn't for game developers. And you're right, I remember 360 software sales being higher, as they should have been. It was a much more friendly system to develop for.

@joshrmeyer: they aren't focused on the gap but profits and growth. They have forgotten about catching up. In fact they are setting up for the future.

They lost the sales battle this Gen but they'll have other gene to try again. It's not impossible to beat sony. They did it with custom hardware that was much more efficient than anything on the market for almost 2 years after launch. That's what they are doing to scorpio. It will be a 6tf machine,but it will be 60 percent more efficient than a comparable pc. The scorpio will run like a 10tf pc. Well that's the rumors.

Oh yeah people always say that the ps3 caught up but it wasn't till mid 2014 that it officially surpassed the 360. After the current Gen launched. The console war was over by then, and the current one was just starting up. We'll all know the ps4 destroyed the xb1 after that though.

@neoistheone: Ok, I'm all for the awesome optimization that goes into certain games, but I highly doubt a 6 tflop gpu would compare to a 10 on PC. Another factor would be the CPU. All we got from MS is that it'll have 8 cores, just like the original xbox one and ps4/Pro... heck, even my Samsung phone has an 8 core processor and it's 2 years old. I'm afraid MS might have over hyped this machine, not that I'm downing it, but be realistic. Mark Cerny, who seems like a genius (probably is) had to use the same jaguar cpu in the Pro... I'm assuming for compatibility issues with older games. Or maybe to cut cost down... who knows. Here's one thing that most likely true: if the CPU was going to be something remarkable, MS would have boasted about it, instead of just saying "8 core" which literally means nothing in today's CPUs.

As far as profits go, has the xbox division made a single profit since the original was released? I had heard they lost billions, but it could be rumors.

@joshrmeyer: forget about current pc tech. It's not an optimization thing it's pure gpu and cpu efficiency. It will take the 6tf gpu and render 60percent better than a comparable pc graphics card. So it will be equivalent to a 9.5-10tf pc graphics card.its all due to the custom architecture that amd and Microsoft created. They went with the cheaper cpu because it is more power efficient more cost efficient than the best 8 core 16 thread cpu. This new communication and rendering method is 100 percent patented by Microsoft specifically for the scorpio. If true this will be the biggest graphical jump since the 360 came out with its custom Radeon gpu with the first unified memory architecture. If you were on pc then you'll remember that we couldn't buy anything like that. It took almost 2 years before we had something similar and more powerful on pc. Now Microsoft wants to do it again.

I know it's all rumors from the hood. So we'll have to see if they are true or not. E3 will be the day this beast is shown off.

This is what Sony and Microsoft should've done from the beginning this get instead of going the cheap route.

@neoistheone: It'll be interesting to see. What's a little odd is Phil asking the developers what is needed for 4k gaming. They said 6tflops, etc. When they said that, they only had PC cards to go by, so they were referring to a 6 tflop PC card. So MS really only needed a 4 tflop gpu if they could get it to render 60% better than a PC card. Something seems fishy but we'll know soon enough.

@joshrmeyer: @joshrmeyer: I'm sure they are trying to keep it a secret. Ms didn't tell any developers what the plan was only that they could guarantee 6tf. Even first party studios were kept out of the loop until they received the newer dev kits this past month. Before they just used a pc mock ups that Ms sent them so that they could have something to work on. It's going to be an amazing piece of plastic...too bad it's going to flop.lol

@neoistheone: They're damn well still focused on the gap when they still keep saying like "the first and only console to enable true 4K gaming and high-fidelity virtual reality" about Scorpio being more powerful than Pro. I say, one only pretends to forget about catching up.

PS3 caught up because 360 didn't have jack towards the end of its lifespan, while PS3 was still getting great exclusives. which @joshrmeyer said it on the beginning that games are what matters.

As for Scorpio, I don't even want to talk about this as for one, we don't even know the price of it and two, the ecosystem MS is going for, makes it hard for me to get a Scorpio when I have a PC.

Rumor or not, how does a 6tf gpu run like a 10tf gpu? I don't get how a software company (lacks software btw, meaning games) can make a 6tf machine to run like a 10tf pc.

@drprophecy: they shouldn't focus on the gap because it will never close only Sony could do that. The Xbox lost this Gen and that's the bottom line.

Microsoft has patented a new way for the cpu and gpu to communicate. It will allow it to be up to 60 percent more efficient than a comparable pc gpu.The Scorpio is rumored to be using a new  console specific architecture that uses a new rendering method. It will allow for  nearly zero latency communication between the CPU and gpu which will allows for a nearly 60% higher graphical performance when compared to what's currently available on current game consoles and pc graphic cards.

 It's a bunch of mumbo jumbo. It's just a rumor or leak from a friend. So we actually won't know until it is shown off at e3. It could just be a lie,but I believe it because they did something similar when developing the 360 so it's not impossible.

@joshrmeyer: I agree, but xbox released multiple AAA games just a few months ago, that's how their schedule works out for game releases. If they could release new games every month they would, but that's not realistic. I keep saying this, but after uncharted released for ps4 they had nothing the following 11 months yet nobody was screaming Sony has 0 games. It's just a huge double standard which Microsoft brought on themselves at the x1 launch disaster, but Microsoft and the x1 has made great strides since then and really is a great console that people just don't want to give it any credit

@sodapoppimpski: I don't remember going 11 months without seeing some exclusive come out. Wasn't ratchet and clank released after that? Maybe they did have a dry spell... isn't that when xbox won half the year in the U.S.? Kinda proves my point. Release a lot of good exclusives, sell lots of consoles. Never said xbox is a bad console either. I like the S model. And I'll probably like the scorpio, if priced right.

Edit: Isn't The last guardian a ps4 exclusive? I had to Google it, but there's plenty more. And you do realize that as of today, Uncharted 4 was released exactly 10 months ago? Have you not seen the exclusives within the last several months, and their scores? "Nothing the following 11 months".... come on now.

@joshrmeyer: I tried to let friends borrow games of mine in the past, but no one ever returned them. Even had a few sell my games behind my back.

I just host game nights these days and let my friends play anything they want. You're welcome to come to one if you're ever in the Chicago area.

@joshrmeyer: You did imply that they did not understand that games sell consoles though, while 2 comments ago admitting that they were winning when their AAA's were coming out.

Rather than stoke the flames, lets just enjoy the games we get to play regardless of the plastic box they come out on.

@suicidesn0wman: Yes, AAAs sell consoles (exclusive ones). If MS understood that, we'd see more 1st party studio games releasing for xbox. I implied that the secret to selling consoles is good quality exclusive games. I said it pretty plainly. And yes, MS did have some good AAAs come out which sold consoles... now why don't they keep that up and invest their budget in studios.

@joshrmeyer: Phil said they are focusing on new ips. Xbox one was doomed with Don steering the ship and they lost focus on the importance of new ips. I think Phil understands this and I expect to see a few new ips being announced at e3, if not theno scorpio will not be well received no matter how great it is, but I will get it either way because I can't help myself.

@sodapoppimpski: Hope you're right. I hope you understand that I want games to be made. I've never owned an xbox (I was actually at e3 when the first one was revealed... huge controller lol). With that new game subscription, it'd be worth it for me to pick up one... waiting on scorpios specs and price first.

@joshrmeyer: You are assuming we know every AAA Xbox has lined up going forward. Consider that it takes 3-5 years for a AAA to be developed and we're just creeping up on 3 years post-Mattrick. For all we know there could be a new MechAssault in the works for Holiday 2018.

MS and Sony have two separate strategies going on right now. MS is scaling back and only showing products coming out over 12-18 months forward, while Sony has been showing off games that might be as far off as 2021.

Either way, I'll be buying the AAA's from both consoles for the foreseeable future. No point in limiting my options over irrational emotions toward a plastic box.

@suicidesn0wman: If they do have a bunch of AAAs coming up, then good, they will sell more consoles. I can't foresee the future... just going based on the last 3 years. MS sure wasn't shy about revealing the scorpio way in advance... I'd be surprised they'd hold off on games. Show a game that may release 2-3 years from now and you may get someone to buy your console knowing a bunch of good looking games are coming out, albeit years away. Look at how many people bought an xbox for scalebound, and the applause it got at E3. If a AAA takes 3-5 years to make, why wouldn't you show it off 2-3 years ahead of release? It doesn't make sense why MS would be hiding AAA games that are going to be released within the next few years. And enough with the plastic box comment lol... didn't you hear? Scorpios going to be made out of metal (aluminum would actually be really cool, literally)

@joshrmeyer: After having to cancel a pair of Mattrick era games would you really want to deal with that situation all over again?

Also, I don't recall cheering for Scalebound, only whining about how much they hated the main character. I will admit I was eager to get the game though. It looked unique and stood out against all the cookie cutter games coming out these days.

@joshrmeyer: DA: I is in my backlog, still shink wrapped like many other games in the backlog. I got so many games though that the longer games suck up too much time. Horizon is the first 30+ hour game I've played in a long time, probably since Fallout 4.

@suicidesn0wman: I hope you didn't pay full price for it! I got it for $8 a few weeks ago. It looks like it's gonna be a 100+ hr game... it just doesn't seem to end. It's amazing how much voice dialogue is in the game also. My only complaint is the super long loading screens. I'll get Horizon at the first price drop I see.

@joshrmeyer: Nah, I paid $15 for it well over a year ago. I buy at least 500 games a year though so I'm sure I wasted money on SOMETHING. lol

"In its own statement, Microsoft said global Xbox One game hours in February jumped 11 percent year-over-year, while global unique multiplayer users reached 35 percent-plus growth compared to last year. Xbox marketing boss Mike Nichols called out Halo Wars 2, For Honor, and Grand Theft Auto IV (in backwards compatibility) as helping drive engagement on Xbox One during the month."

Lol!!! These responses are the best!

@bat725: Why? Because they have a larger online infastructure or the player base usage is going stronger than ever?

@xcrimsonxsynx: Stop drinking the Kool-Aid, friend. If I were you, I'd be writing an angry letter to MS, with haste. Tell them they can do better. And, while you're at it, tell them Scorpio better launch with Ryse 2 or GTFO! XD

@RobNyack: Honestly, that sucks that you bought a PS4 and it isn't getting any use. I never had a console just collect dust not even my Wii. What future PS4 games are you looking forward to? There has to be some since you haven't sold it yet.

@RobNyack: Surprising being as though they have barely any games to play. If it weren't for multiplats they wouldn't have anything. Sold my Xb1 last month. Just no games worth playing on it. With all these exclusives out it's surprising anyone's PS4 is collecting dust.

@orochipunisher: xbox has released tons a AAA games in the last few months so I don't understand the no games nonsense. You realize Sony didn't release anything worth playing for 11 months after uncharted was released? During the same span Microsoft released multiple AAA exclusives. Each company has lulls in their game release schedule.

@sodapoppimpski: You mean the Gears Halo Forza release cycle which was missing a Halo release? Last few months "tons", what were you on before you wrote that? Aside from Forza Horizon and Gears of War 4, just what did they release that equates to "tons" of AAA exclusives? Mind you that was September and October and since then nothing until Halo Wars 2. So 3 games and you exclaimed "tons". What you assume is worth playing is besides the fact, also that doesn't mean jack. If what you believe did hold weight everyone would be playing all those "ton" of AAA games MS released during the time no games "worth" playing came out after Uncharted 4. Stick to facts and reality buddy, fantasy will only ever get you in trouble.

@SavageEvil: facts? Fact is xbox released more than those 3 games like tomb raider, quantum break, recore, rare replay and others during the lull in ps4 schedule. I supposed you have a problem with the yearly xbox hits, but ps4 yearly releases are ground breaking, right?

@sodapoppimpski: Street Fighter is the still the most played fighter this gen. I mean KOF XIV is better in terms of content but SF is still king none the less in the tournament scene. You must think I am a sheep to AAA games just because they are AAA games. No I play JRPGs and fighters mostly. While you were probably thinking Halo 5 was great MP I was enjoying 100s of hours of games like Disgaea 5. I got my mainstream FPS fill in with a little bit of Destiny. But as far as exclusives go it's all Playstation. I really only like Gears on the Xbox side. And I hate the XB controller d-pad. Always have.

Either way, I'm glad someone is enjoying their XB1.
