PS4 beats Xbox One in U.S. for October 2014

The latest NPD Group figures have confirmed that PlayStation 4 has outsold Xbox One in the U.S. for its tenth consecutive month. 

Not only was Sony’s latest home console the best-selling console in North America for October 2014, but it still managed to outpace its Microsoft rival despite Xbox One’s $50 price cut.

Said NPD Group’s Liam Callahan, “October 2014 marks the first 12 months of sales for the Xbox One and PS4; and after the first year, these consoles have had a great start as cumulative sales are currently over 70% higher than the combined first year totals of Xbox 360 and PS3.

“Hardware sales of eighth generation consoles represent close to 80% of dollar sales this month driving overall consoles sales to increase by 186% over October 2013.”
