Playstation 4’s reign has finally come to an end last month. PS4 has outsold Xbox One every month since the launch of the consoles. That streak has finally ended. Xbox One was the highest selling console for the month of November. With the great bundles and the $50 price drop they installed most likely had a lot to do with it. The Xbox One will continue to be priced at $350 until early January, but I personally can’t see them raising the price back up to $400. Here is a statement Microsoft’s Mike Nichols released to IGN about being the highest selling console.
“We are committed to making Xbox the best place to play, with this year’s best games, the best community of gamers to play with, and terrific value. And we are amazed by the excitement Xbox fans have shown to start off this holiday. November set a new record for sales of Xbox One, and Xbox One was the best-selling console in the US and UK. Response to the holiday lineup of games on Xbox One was incredible, with Xbox One fans buying more games in November in the U.S. than any other gen eight platform and enjoying over 357 million hours of gameplay globally. In fact, more fans logged into Xbox Live across Xbox One and Xbox 360, and enjoyed more entertainment, than any other month in the history of Xbox. We love to see the excitement from our fans and are grateful for their passion, support and contributions to the Xbox community.”
