When it comes to comparing the success of two gaming console platforms, the first thing people discuss is sales numbers. Both Microsoft and Sony reveal their actual numbers during their quarterly reports and NPD reports sales data for each month. Since their launch last year, Sony PS4 is well ahead of Microsoft Xbox One is terms of sales. Geekwire recently posted a chart representing overall sales data of Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo. As you can see in the image above, except for Q3 2013, Sony enjoyed strong sales of PS units worldwide.
Even though Microsoft’s Xbox One had best collection of games, apps and overall experience, the sales were poor due to poor marketing, pricing and launch strategies. Microsoft has been correcting all of them since beginning of this year and they are hoping for a bounce back in sales this holiday quarter. Recently they announced price cut for Xbox One which allows consumers to buy it for as low as $349.
