PS4 sales in the US double that of Xbox One in January

Sony has claimed that PS4 sales in the month of January are double that of its rival Xbox One, with Sony’s console outselling Microsoft’s by nearly 2:1.

Sony Computer Entertainment America marketing vice president John Koller stated, “The response has been fantastic. In the US, PS4 was #1 in sales for next-gen consoles in January, nearly doubling the nearest next-gen competitor. And PS4 remains the cumulative leader here based on today’s report from the NPD Group.”

“Globally, we announced last month that we’ve sold through more than 4.2 million units as of the holiday season, making PS4’s launch the biggest in console gaming history. I think the PS4 demand is indicative of how we’ve tapped into something special – and that’s that gamers want to be recognized for their greatness and want to enjoy experiences together.”

John Koller concluded by saying that every PlayStation 4 console which has been made available in North America has been sold.

“Since we launched on November 15th, we’ve sold every PS4 available in the US. It’s clear that PS4 is seeing strong appeal all over the world, and we’ll continue doing our best to provide additional inventory in all of the 53 countries where PS4 is available.”
