PS4 Tops Xbox One In November 2017 US Sales
The PS4 and Xbox One both had their strongest months ever in terms of unit sales.
The NPD Group has released its November 2017 report, covering hardware and software sales during the month. In terms of hardware, the PlayStation 4 was the top-seller in terms of units sold, though the Xbox One earned the most in dollar sales. This could be explained by the higher-priced Xbox One X ($500 in the US) launching during November.
Sony sold more PS4 units in November 2017 than any other month ever, including the launch month in November 2013. November was also strong for Xbox One, as it sold the most units during the month than ever before in its history. The PS4 remains the best-selling console this year overall.
For November 2017, total hardware spending rose 52 percent year-over-year to $1.1 billion. The growth was driven by sales of Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PS4. For the full year, console spend rose 28 percent compared to last year to $3.4 billion.
The NPD Group also released its list of the Top 20 best-selling games of November 2017, with Activision's Call of Duty: WWII taking the top spot. You can check out GameSpot's report here to see the full Top 20 chart.
