PS4 Was The Best Selling Console In UK For November In Terms Of Software Sales

Ps4 hack

In recent months we have seen Microsoft and Xbox dominate the console market , and it seemed that Sony would have no answer to combat Microsoft’s continued dominance, in the US Microsoft had been the bestselling console for a fourth successive month, until that trend was seemingly broken in November , and it now seems UK has followed suit.

However it does seem very likely that Microsoft’s run is going to end as the PS4 had an amazing Black Friday, and it is forecasted to have even a better holiday season, thanks largely to the PlayStation experience which saw the blockbuster announcement of the Last Of Us 2 .

In the UK for the month of November the PlayStation 4 was the best-selling console in terms of physical software sales, in the form of both units and revenue, and it is surely another sign that better days are ahead for Sony’s flagship console.

    lol your bias shows here just because more indies sell on the indiestation doesnt mean the indiestation had more consoles sales…lmao

    by your theory if nintendo had just one console and some one bought 60m in indies its the best selling console …lmao

    • uptownsoul

      Sorry, just because you don’t like the statistical facts doesn’t mean they’re biased. But have a hate-filled day

      • Hvd

        its complete bias because the facts are wrong. just because you sell 50 indies on 1 console makes it the best selling console???…thats more like stupidity.

        • uptownsoul

          The problem is with your bias…You think only 1 console has indies or that only 1 console’s indies are being counted in these statistics. Sorry but all games (indies, AA, AAA, etc) on ALL consoles are being counted.

            LOL…Time to face the facts: Now we see the facts that, in the UK, PS4 outsold the XB1 in software (as this article shows) and in hardware (as this article shows: )…Not to mention NPD shows PS4 hardware outselling XB1 in America ( )

          • Hvd
