Although official numbers are not available at this time, Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation 4 has outsold the Xbox One by nearly double in January 2014.
A statement issued by Sony said the following: “Demand for PlayStation 4 remains incredibly strong as it was number one in sales for next gen consoles in January, nearly doubling the nearest next gen competitor, and remains the cumulative leader.”
Xbox’s numbers were misleading, as they released their numbers combined with the Xbox 360. Microsoft‘s Yusef Mehdi said the following: “January NPD sales figures released today revealed Xbox sold the most games across all console platforms in January, with 2.27 million units sold, making up 47 percent of software market share.”
Sony also had this to say: “It’s clear gamers are choosing PlayStation as the best place to play with PS4 software sales ranking number one in January, highlighted by strong sales of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, which sold twice as many units on PS4 than any other platform.”
So, it looks like PlayStation is the clear front-runner right now in the gaming world.
