NPD has revealed their latest sales numbers for December and Microsoft claimed that the Xbox One managed to sale more than the PS4 as of December 2013. However, Sony Computer Entertainment’s Director of Corporate Communications Dan Race verified a good statement to the press claiming that the PlayStation 4 is still in the lead against its competitor for two months since its launched November 15th.
According to the latest NPD report, PlayStation 4 remains the cumulative leader for next-gen console sales in the U.S. since its launch on November 15. We sold every PS4 available at retail in the U.S. and were out of stock in December due to overwhelming consumer demand. With more than 4.2 million PS4 systems sold worldwide, it’s clear that the PS4′s gaming and entertainment features are resonating with large audiences and we’re doing our best to provide additional inventory in all of the 53 countries where it’s available.
The PS4 has sold out everywhere, it make sense for Microsoft to claimthey are winning but that will be a temporary respite as Sony is planning to restock soon.
If the PS4 were in stock we believe PS4 would have sold a lot more. We probably won’t see the PS4 back in stock until the end of this month or beginning of February.
