The sales of consoles and videogames in November do not have a clear winner. According to NPD, the auditor that makes the sales statistics in the USA. PlayStation 4 returned to be the most sold console, but Xbox One was the one that showed the greatest benefits.
November not only marks the kickoff and exit for Christmas shopping (especially in video games and consoles) but it is one of the strongest months of the year for hardware producers, thanks to the Black Friday offers. The NPD auditor has just released the first console sales data: PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 PRO and (for the first time) Xbox One X, and all companies have reason to celebrate.
All three have experienced an increase in sales. With a figure that is around the 1,100 million dollars spent, more than 50% increase over the previous month, which becomes a new record. And this means that, in 2017, 28% more has been spent on video games than in the previous year.
If you look at the NPD statements, it’s very clear that more PlayStation 4s were sold than Nintendo Switch or Xbox One. In fact, the console has had its best month since the launch in the United States, and its market dominance continues to grow little. a little.
And there is also great news for Microsoft. It seems that the fall in sales of Xbox One S in recent months was due to the wait for its most powerful machine, Xbox One X. The console capable of playing games in 4K has made the Redmond company also have its best month of November historic (remember that they are figures in the United States), and also reaches the best income figure of the three companies.
