This month’s NPD Report is in for November 2015 but Sony told GamesBeat that the PlayStation 4 was ahead of the Xbox One in the United States, even though both consoles saw excellent sales (especially during Black Friday week).

Sony marketing boss Eric Lempel further stated that, “PlayStation 4 is the top-selling console in the United States during the month of November, according to NPD. We have hit several key milestones over the last few weeks. Prior to Black Friday, we announced we have sold through more than 30.2 million PS4s to consumers around the world and that PS4 continues to exhibit the fastest growth in PlayStation hardware history.

“In addition, Black Friday sales were the strongest in PlayStation history demonstrating more people game now than ever before. We are also pleased to announce November was the biggest month ever for PlayStation Store indicating a strong digital marketplace complementing healthy retail sales.”

The PlayStation 4 has had a great year, notching up more than 30 million units worldwide. What are your thoughts on the console’s performance in November? Let us know in the comments.

    The PS4 is at around 33 million sold to consumers. It looks like the PS4 is on track to beat their target of 37 million by the end of the fiscal year.

    It’s no suprise Xbox One is losing. Consumers don’t appreciate paying more for inferior hardware and services, or being ripped off and lied to.

    Many people predicted the PS4 would dominate the market long before both consoles launched. Microsoft drone loyalists didn’t want to believe it. Some Microsoft drone loyalists have spent the past two years damage controlling for Microsoft but after the countless 180s and mimicing Microsoft has done, it’s clear that Microsoft drone loyalists don’t like their favorite console. They just hate yours. Microsoft drone loyalists can’t find a way to defend their purchase without being hypocritical.

    Microsoft drone loyalists are the type of consumers who feel they have to have one device that does it all. So they base all their purchasing decisions off company financials and which company they think is “powerful”, even if the product is trash. But they still have that doubt which causes them to lie and damage control for the garbage product they hold allegiance to. Microsoft drone loyalists simply want a PS4 with a Microsoft logo.

      True Dat. Denial is strong in the Xbotter. I recall the conversations all over amazon, pre-launch, where those who could clearly already see the PS4 was the better system, the more gamer oriented company and the more sensible/exciting purchase were being told they were “Sony Paupers” or some such nonsense, when in fact we were just trying to look out for all gamers and support the system/company that didn’t completely try to milk us for all we’re worth (blatantly).

      While I have no problem with Windows, MS has done very little for consoles (other than maybe force everyone to get into better networking/online) while they have thrown money at good studios and good games just to prevent them being on other systems. They have tried to buy their way to profit while not giving a single f**k about the gamer. The X-Box division at MS are a bunch of lying, stealing scumbags, going back to the 360 RROD (that I had before before going PS3 – should have stuck with PS all along eh? had PS1 and 2) and they have done more harm for both console and PC gaming than anyone else (even EA!).

      First stealing PC games to put on their console, contributing to the dumbing down of games, definitely kick starting the whole DLC/Microtransaction crap and then, finally, trying to remove every last right a gamer had – but failed thanks to the backlash. I hope MS get the f**k out of consoles and focus back on PC, without any stupid ‘gaming for windows’ nonsense, just stop taking software away from windows to serve your ulterior motives, and leave console games to the companies and studios who have a genuine love and desire to make good console games. Don’t just money hat everything in site to spoil it for all gamers but those few idiots who bought into your stupid, oversized, underpowered “crap box last”.

    • XbotMK1

      Microsoft only cares about protecting their operating system. It’s why the entered the console market to begin with. They’re greedy and have done a lot of harm.

    • Truth™

      And yet I don’t see you installing Linux or getting out of Sony’s walled garden since you hate walled gardens so much you drone. PC is freedom. PS4 is slavery 🙂

    • Gamez Rule

      “Sony trounced their competition with hardly any games during the best games line up in history for the competition and PS4 sold better than Xbone on their own homelands the United States”. Congrats PlayStation. Congrats 🙂

    • Truth™

      You did nothing to prove Sony wasn’t Japanese Microsoft and will sell you microtransactions, make you re buy old games and locked in ecosystems

      PC is freedom. PS4 is slavery 🙂

    • Michael Norris

      If you are a Pc gamer why do you protect the Xone hmm? You are just much shill as the people to call out. If these consoles died i would have no faith in Pc gaming at all. Piracy is a huge issue developers and publishers need to get paid.

      When you download a new game instead of buying a legit copy you are killing the gaming industry slowly. I don’t like micro-transaction i personally don’t support that part of the industry but i do buy games legally. I have a gaming rig that can emulate just fine but i don’t even do that.

    • Truth™

      Poor Sonycucks crying when the truth is pointed out that both companies are cancerous

      What stage you at, fam?

    • XbotMK1

      The PS4 uses FreeBSD and Sony supplies the tools for devs to port their games to the PS4 from any device. Sony also doesn’t control the PC market with garbage proprietary APIs.

    • Truth™

      Forked Botnet variation. Not freedom. You are really bad at this just like PS4 is bad at running games Xtreme Derp. You probably don’t know who Richard Stallman is

      And Vulkan is going to do nothing for the PS4’s garbage underpowered hardware. It’s just going to make PC better and leave POS4 in the dust 🙂

    • Psionicinversion

      sonys steals just as many pc games as xbox. MS kickstarting the whole DLC crap lmao that was COD not MS fool

    • Gamez Rule

      ♦sonys steals just as many pc games as xbox♦? ….How do Sony Steal games from PC? You keep coming out with this but you cannot give a real reason on HOW they Steal?

    • Psionicinversion

      thats only cus your to stupid. Do you think nobody knows about up coming games until there announced? nope people in the industry know along time before and thats when sony/MS go and cut deals for stuff and for the really good games take it away while its in development

    • Gamez Rule

      Oh so now I’m the one being called Stupid from you because YOU cannot give a real reason on HOW Sony Steal games from PC? LMAO!

    • Psionicinversion

      yep you are to stupid or just blindly ignorant but its ok you are a console lover so ill let you have. Barely any brain cells to rub between the lot of ya

    • Gamez Rule

      Really LMAO!.. I’m far from stupid let alone ignorant. I’m very much being informed on what gaming systems have to offer people and how they are selling etc. Now this may come as a shock to you but unlike you I have common sense as well as awareness when it comes down to gaming, and life in general and I know that Sony are not stealing games from PC LMAO!

      So before you try to shot down people maybe you sit back and think what you’re typing because all you’ve done is shown how ignorant and uninformed you really are as well letting people see your lack of awareness on the above matters.

      So I’ll ask again..”How do Sony Steal games from PC?” Or are more insults going to come from you because you cannot give the answer☺

    • Psionicinversion

      Ugghh forget it. Keep chewing on that pack of bubbleicious though

    • polysix

      And you keep ignoring those dictionaries.

    • Gamez Rule

      You cannot explain let alone show evidence on how Sony are steal games from PC like you claimed to be the case.

      That’s fine because the answer is Sony doesn’t steal games from PC.

      Oh it’s it’s *bubblicious* my friend☺

    • Psionicinversion

      i didnt explicitly say sony anyway he said MS stole games from PC and i said so does sony. There both as bad but the only real way is to go round to the studios and beat the truth out of them.

    • Gamez Rule

      You explicitly stated Sony stole games from PC. And I quote …”sonys steals just as many pc games as xbox.”

      So you again just brought it back up that SONY stole games from PC by stating…. “i said so does sony”

      So i’ll ask you again then *How do Sony Steal games from PC?*

    • Psionicinversion

      im fed up with it now, ill just say you win cus i cant be bothered its got boring now. On another not SC alpha 2 open to all 😀

    • Gamez Rule

      lmao!☺

    • Psionicinversion

      downloading at 20MB sec muhahah beat that crappy console networks. Should get my ISP to upgrade me to what they promised theyd do then id be download about 24MB sec

    • Gamez Rule

      20MB? or 20Mb?☺

    • Psionicinversion

      MegaBytes 😀 i.e. 30GB in about 30 minutes :d

    • Gamez Rule

      Broadband speeds are advertised as Megabits per second, not Megabytes – i.e. 20Mb, not 20MB so megabytes (which is shortened to MB) denote memory capacity and file size, not speed?

      Its megabits per second (Mb) when talking about broadband speed, and megabytes (MB) – or gigabytes (GB) for large files – when talking about file sizes and download caps, so what speed is your broadband?

    • Psionicinversion

      Well its 152Mb speed (which is what the package is), which on speedtest i can get upto 160Mb, its cable so it work pretty well. I should of been upgraded to 200Mb by now but not yet but going wait cus my mate says its having some problems atm so ill wait a bit.

      When your downloading stuff from steam, game launchers etc it always says MB so 152Mb package but files download at 19-20MB/s max

    • Gamez Rule

      you with Virgin then?, I left them as they cap their speeds at certain times which slow down downloads etc. Plus it had a high ping… although BBmax don’t work anymore the last BB-Test I took showed this.. It didn’t change that much luckly

    • Psionicinversion

      yeah im with them there pretty good, do you live in a big city or something? i live in a small city so might not be as bad. my speed has only been capped very recently at certain times when they started to upgrade everyones speed which doesnt surprise me seeing as the network always buckles under the strain whenever they do an upgrade. Upgrade first fix it later! so everything should be back to normal within a few months

      My ping is pretty low like about 20ms so its ok. Always hate it when i see there beatches with like 5ms whose house is sat right next to the exchange!

    • Gamez Rule

      I’m right next to my exchange and lucky to have a 1ms ping, the workers know me very well so get loads of stuff done straight away to☺

    • Psionicinversion

      hahah nice your lucky. mine sucks at 16-20ms 🙁 hahah although i remember playing counter strike back in the day on 56K modems with 150+ms ping, then we all hate anyone on ISDN, then we really hated anyone on dsl… then when i got fast cable i hated all the high ping players hahah its the way it goes :d

      Just been playing some SC Alpha 2 damn it looks amazing, runs sub 30fps alot on my 280x atm but you cant expect it to run well as an alpha especially an online game. For the type of game it is its the best looking MMO type game ever by far. If youve seen the Old man sq42 trailer of Mark Hamills character the ship he gets into Gladius looks exactly like that in game which means the Idris (big ship) looks exactly like that and we means we havnt got access to that level of detailed flight suit/armor yet that Hamills character is wearing. Probably to save on file sizes for a while

      Was dead funny i was trying to land on Cry astro which is the refuelling and repair station i was at full stop and put myself into 3rd person view to better see the position to land. Well i thought ill hold my accelerate key for a second just give it a bit of speed….. oh i accelerated alright… right into the station and blew up hahaha ive now found out one little tap of the accelerate key = about 4ms in super hornet is all that you need hahaha

    • Psionicinversion

      also theres at least one game that can never be stolen by MS and sony or make any total exclusivity deal and thats star citizen…. unless they wanted to give CIG $150million… $100million in refunds to every PC player that backed + 50mill to finish the game

    • polysix

      *you’re

    • polysix

      Bollocks, SONY invests in FIRST PARTY STUDIOS and make quality titles. They don’t just buy out indies or whatever to get the game. Sony has a long history of proper investment in companies who’s games wouldn’t be coming to PC anyway, while MS basically buy up everything non sony/nintendo to prevent anyone but Xbots from having it. Totally different. As for DLC – I meant they made it the norm through ubiquity on their console, doesn’t matter which specific title/format started it.

    • Truth™

      Another Xtreme Derp cuckfest as conslows keep on dying and needing to be slashed in price. While Sony’s drooling fanbase accepts broken peripherals as the future. Hilarious.

      There is one device that does it all. It’s called PC

    • Gamez Rule

      “There is one device that does it all. It’s called PC”

      Really, can you play the Uncharted series on PC ( Nope ) or what about the whole Halo series ( nope ) that’s why I own a PC as well as consoles so I can enjoy great games, so really I win while you miss out.

    • Truth™

      Uncharted works perfectly fine on PC running on the Youtube emulator since it has so little gameplay 🙂

    • Gamez Rule

      Typical answer from yourself, but still truth be told is owning a PC as well as consoles is the best way to enjoy great games

    • XbotMK1

      This guy is nothing but a moron. He doesn’t realize most things on PC are controlled by a few companies. Microsoft and Nvidia.

    • Gamez Rule

      I’ve been gaming for over 30 years on all types of platforms and always used the PC for my main gaming needs BUT to see someone keep coming out and putting consoles and it’s gamers down while claiming to be part of the PC master-race is sad, and doesn’t show off a real gamer at all.

      Gaming is at it’s best and should be enjoyed by whatever means possible. If someone can only game on a phone / tablet / console / PC and makes them happy that’s what matters.

    • Gamez Rule

      “Due to people using VGChartz as a source for sales ( which are not official ) I thought I’ll leave this here for those that still use it”

      ♦ThePlayStation 4 by itself has now sold more than the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 combined during the same amount of time♦..AND..♦PlayStation 4 has continued to grow its lead over the Xbox One and Wii U, outselling both of them combined♦

      Wow, really good news for Sony

      ( last official PS4 sold figures were at 30.2 Million )
      ( last official Wii U sold figures were at 10.73 Million )
      ( Microsoft don’t share sold figures anymore ) MS just talks on how well their console sells ☺☺☺

    • Tech junkie

      Question, do you even play video games or just come on here to make yourself feel like you matter. Please take your meds, they really do help

    • Starman

      First comment …PATHETIC !!! STFU… if you believe that crap , I have a bridge to sell you….Just like a Sony minion(fangirl) lol……

  • Truth™

    And it took slashing the price and eating a loss to get there. Bravo Soony, So many potatoes sold and now minus games since everything is coming to PC. It now it just has COD, Doritos and Dew

    Rscottycuck will have a speech before he takes the stage at the SJW convention this weekend 🙂

  • Gamez Rule

    As people have already stated “Sony trounced their competition with hardly any games during the best games line up in history for the competition”. Congrats PlayStation. Congrats 🙂

  • Rikarudo

    Wow, considering November and December we’re crucial for Xbox this is incredible news for Sony. Xbox with their strongest lineup ever for the holidays and yet Sony with no real triple A exclusive. Congrats… well done. Now let’s see how much Santa loves the Xbox this month.

  • Starman

    LMFAO !!!! My playstation floats … it will be in the next update (psn 3.077 2025 update) did you hear that one ‘MKBOTDIK’ ?

  • HisDivineOrder

    Wow. If Microsoft can’t beat Sony this year (with all the exclusives and extreme deals), then Xbox One is never going to start catching up to PS4. I’d almost say, “Wow, Sony really did a number on them.”

    But no. It was Microsoft that did a number on itself at the start of this generation and everything that has followed has been almost a direct result of its TV-based, used-games-based, online-only, and Kinect-centric seppuku.

  • Mr Xrat

    Xgimps told me they have da hollydayz on lock though.

    No way out for the Xbone now.
