PS4 Topped Almost 75% More Sales than Xbox One During April

According to a report by Fool.com, it appears that Sony’s PlayStation 4 is still outselling Microsoft’s Xbox One, despite how well the launch of Titanfall boosted the console’s sales, particularly in the UK .

As detailed in said report, the NPD Group, a market research company, had been tracking the sales of both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 during the month of April, the first month in the beginning of financial year (at least as far as the UK is concerned).

According to the results, the Xbox One only was only selling 115,000 consoles in April, while the PlayStation 4 was said to be selling approximately 200,000 consoles.

However, these figures are lower than the units that were sold in March, when 311,000 Xbox Ones were sold in North America compared to 370,000 PlayStation 4s.

On the plus side though, according to NPD analyst Liam Callahan, the combined sales of the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One over the course of their first six months since launch have more than doubled the sales of when their predecessors were first launched.

Although, with the recent announcement of the Xbox One going Kinect-less , it’s believed that the Xbox One will start outselling the PlayStation 4 in North America by 2015.

A bunch of other updates regarding both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles have come about within the past week, some of which include the first Games with Gold on Xbox One and the confirmation that early Xbox One buyers will not be refunded in light of the console’s price cut.

The Xbox 360 and Xbox One entertainment apps now no longer require Xbox Live Gold (like Netflix and Hulu ); most of the Xbox One’s services no longer require Xbox Live Gold either.

The exclusion of the Kinect has also been said to improve the Xbox One’s performance . Even a couple of developers have had their say on Microsoft’s announcement.

The Xbox One will start shipping without the Kinect on Monday, June 9 with a $100 price drop. The console package will still include everything that it has before, except there will now be a boxed version that’ll come without the peripheral.
