PlayStation 4 Sells Almost Twice The Number Of Xbox One In January NPD

According to recent sales figures of NPD, PS4 has sold almost twice the amount of units compared to its competitor Xbox One. This news was revealed by Geoff Keighley on Twitter.

This news won’t be surprising to many as PS4 faced shortage with supply and lack of hardware during December, due to launch in different markets of the world. Sony had promised more stock for PS4 and this can be seen in the latest sales figure of PS4 in January NPD.

Geoff Keighley also revealed that Tomb Raider on PlayStation 4 outsold the Xbox One version 2:1.

Meanwhile Microsoft has also revealed their sales for the Xbox in January NPD. On the official Xbox Blog, Yusuf Mehdi talked about the sales for Xbox hardware and software.

We are incredibly humbled and proud to see Xbox One continue to be the best launch of an Xbox in our history. Comparatively, Xbox One consoles have sold at a rate of 2.29 times faster than Xbox 360 in the U.S. in the same timeframe for the first three months on the market. From our blazing start out of the gate, we have continued to see Xbox One delight fans in 13 markets around the world, with many more markets to come this year.

    Numbers mean nothing to Microsoft. Xbox 1, 360, one. They can’t count!

    Xbox FTW

    LOL Sony sheep are a joke. They buy their barebones PS4 and don’t look back.

    Gaming, TV, an amazing Kinect camera. The true next gen console is being ignored by fans of the minimally upgraded PS3. Sad.

    • Ricardo J Varona

      MANDATORY LOL IN CAPS LOCK TO SHOW MY SUPERIORITY. I’ve been multiplat nearly my entire life. I had the 360 for the exclusives and the ps3 for its exclusives. The actual multiplats varied between consoles. That being said, the PS4 is no joke. I mean, the sales figures speak for themselves.

      I plan on getting an Xbone at some point, but right now it just doesn’t make any sense. The truth is that Microsoft set a rocky foundation with its iffy policies. So right now, sellers neglect what would otherwise be a decent next gen console because they don’t know the baggage that comes with it.

    • Ricardo J Varona

      On top of that, we all know how the specs discussion has gone. It’s a consumer’s market. We want the best and the cheapest. Right now, that’s PS4. I would put money on the table that if the Xbone would have launched with kinect but at the same price point as the PS4, this would be another story.

    • bigevilworldwide

      Yeah cause the 720p isn’t at all a barely upgraded 360 moron…Keep sucking Microsoft’s cock idiot…Enjoy your Tv and 720p gaming..By the way 99.9% of PS4 games are 1080p unlike the 720p and it’s 2 a kinect game and a heavily downgraded racing game

      Poor baby, your preferred toy is being outsold.

  • Jesse

    The moment Sony’s E3 2013 press conference was over, I went directly to Amazon and pre-ordered the Killzone: SF launch bundle. Haven’t looked back since. PLAYSTATION NATION!

  • Mike H

    The next big sales figures blurb is gonna be like /dagger to MS

  • V For Vincennes

    It wasn’t until a week or two in of owning an Xbox One, that I’d felt I really made a mistake choosing it over the PS4. That feeling of induced facepalm continues each day I read my regular sites. I’d have been better off dousing the 500 bucks in gasoline and setting it ablaze.

    • Mikeherp Derp

      Are you serious or just trolling?

      • V For Vincennes

        No trolling here. Just how I feel about it. The Xbox One has been a complete joke in many facets. If it wasn’t for Battlefield 4, it wouldn’t even get turned on. The whole OS is a Windows 8 nightmare, and it boggles my mind how many basic features and functions its missing compared to the 360.

        I know some of those such as memory management and the battery life indicator were to rectified with an update, but hell, Microsoft couldn’t even get that out when intended.

        It’s a big glorified Roku device. The only app that runs infinitely better on the One than on the 360 is the YouTube app. Other than that, any video experience is no better than my S-Model 360. Kinect, well, I don’t even need to go into that. Saying Kinect is a punchline in itself.

        I mean, I’m playing Aliens: Colonial Marines right at this moment on my 360. F**king Colonial Marines of all things. That’s how meaningless owning an Xbox One is currently. One of the worst titles of 2013 on an eight year old platform trumps doing anything on the next gen console I own.

        • Jordan

          finally someone that speaks from heart rather than some that damage control and defend like no tomorrow.

        • Negative

          Are you serious? You really don’t have an Xbox One do you?

          I have both and honestly the pS4 is barebones compared to the X1. I can’t believe all of the ignorant Sony sheep that ignore this fact without trying the console out.

          You’re just another. If you really had an Xbox One you wouldn’t sound so ridiculous.

          • V For Vincennes

            I apologize for the shoddy lighting, but there it is. In all its paperweight glory. So yeah, I do actually own one. Thank you for being so assumptive though.

          • Negative

            Here’s a suggestion: try Ryse, Forza 5, Killer Instinct, Dead Rising, even NFS looks great and is a ton of fun. You might be surprised. Don’t troll Battlefield 4 as Xbox One’s killer app. A game riddled with problems.

            Seriously. Sell it to someone who I’d actually call a gamer and go buy more Sony stock.

          • V For Vincennes

            Dead Rising 3 is actually under Battlefield 4. Fun game, vastly superior to the previous two, but definitely a little sketchy with the visuals. If it didn’t have the sense of scale behind it, I’d think it was a 360 title.

            Ryse. Probably one of the most hollow hack and slash experiences I’ve ever ever played. The definition of “rental” game if I’ve ever seen one. One weapon thoughout the entire game? QTE after QTE under the guise of combat? The co-op was fun, but ran the repetitive route pretty quickly.

            Pretty yes, very pretty, but it seemed more like a glorified tech demo with a few sparse gameplay elements mixed in. It actually makes me wish CryTek had planned a Crysis 3 port for the One, as that game would have looked great if Ryse running on CryEngine 3 was any indicator.

            Killer Instinct. Played it. My days of being into 2D fighting games died a long time ago, probably around the slew of Capcom titles I used to have on the Dreamcast. So, had to be 2001, I’d have likely been more into it.

            Haven’t tried Forza 5, but I did give Assassin’s Creed 4 a run through. Decent enough game, but never a single moment where i thought I was playing something that wasn’t on the 360. Water looked nice during the naval sequences.

            And I certainly wouldn’t have much in the way of allegiance to Sony. Especially in the past ten years. I own a PS3, but bought it used, as well as bought used what few games I did own for it. Never paid for PS Plus. They’ve never seen a dime from me since the PS2. Hell, that console collected dust for a year and a half until The Last of Us came out. Once that came and went, back into the abyss it went.

  • myaccount nowname

    ummmm, can I have my ice cream now? Looks like Microsoft’s was serving soft serve ice cream all along. They are licking their wounds.

    • datdude

      How long until xbox execs start jumping from the rooftops? Oh, I forgot, they’ll do what they always do…they’ll simply pass their pain onto their customers. Expect xbox live gold subscription fee increase by 2015. They’ll make some lame excuse and the xdrones will bend over yet again and suffer the great indignity.

  • caBooOm

    PS2 all over again

  • Vulcanproject

    That’s an absolute battering for Xbox One in it’s home market. Just as many suspected, soon as Sony could resupply, PS4 has sold like hot cakes.

    I can’t imagine what the sales might be like in markets traditionally more favourable to Sony, like Europe. Or how the worldwide picture might look after the machine arrives in Japan this month.

    • Mikeherp Derp

      Most of Europe is 5:1, Japan and rest of Asia probably even greater, whenever Xboner gets around to launching there.. lol

      Feb will be a complete blowout with the Japan launch. Expect 2:1 globally by end of 2014.

  • Counterproductive

    Keep moving them goal posts, Microsoft. It won’t help.

    • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

      haha and vgchartz said they were close in January. Now what will the X1 camp say now when X1 is losing at the rate of 2:1 in North America.

      • datdude

        And considering Sony can’t keep up with demand it’s pretty damn impressive for them all around. Greatness indeed!!!

      • Dakan45

        And this is why VGChartz should never be trusted. ioi was banned from Neogaf for a reason.

    • Mikeherp Derp

      Keep in mind this is only US NPD sales. Globally PS4 will be doing even better in Europe and Asia. February will be a blowout with the Japanese launch.

    • Negative

      Keep spinning it in your direction, fanboy.

      The X1 is doing amazing. Sony is hyping up the PS4 by not producing enough. Now all the sheep want one because they can’t have it!!!!

      With both consoles sitting on my shelf it’s tough to say the PS4 is better than the XBox One. Very tough.

      • Mikeherp Derp

        The X1 just got outsold nearly 3:1 globally this week according to vgcharts.
