PS4 Outsells Xbox One In September But Microsoft Is Gaining

We’ll have to wait and see if the Xbox One can really make up ground.

Despite the fact that industry analysts say that the Sony PS4 outsold the Microsoft Xbox One again in September, it appears as of Microsoft is finally seeing some real movement towards the top of the heap. The Xbox One “continued to see strong momentum” in the month, Microsoft explained in a statement issued on October 19. The company wouldn’t release actual sales numbers but said the Xbox One saw very strong year-over-year sales numbers in the latest quarter.

The momentum Microsoft is seeing comes at just the right time, as the company is hoping the Holiday season is going to be a big winner as the firm prepares to release “greatest games lineup in the industry and in Xbox history.” Along with this games lineup the company is also revamping the dashboard for its flagship console and while there are still some glitches before its ready for primetime, Microsoft is clearly getting closer to being ready to unleash the new Xbox One Experience onto the general public.

Considering that games like Halo 5: Guardians and Rise of the Tomb Raider are coming exclusively to the Xbox One this winter, the company has a point when it comes to touting its lineup. One of the lest surprising pieces of information that surfaced this week is that both the PS4 and Xbox One are perfoming quite well when being compared to the Xbox 360 and PS3. Both Sony and Microsoft say sales for their current generation consoles are about 40 percent higher than the combined 23 months of the Xbox 360 and PS3.

    The gap grows wider but they are catching up! Wait…

    • Alistein

      The article never said they were catching up. Read it again they are gaining momentum and probably other factors are being considered like for one xbox is outselling ps4 in latin America.


      “PS4 Outsells Xbox One In September But Microsoft Is Gaining” Gaining what exactly? NPD doesn’t include Latin America.

      I think they mean it’s gaining sales compared to before. I have not seen the numbers but apparently xbox has sold more consoles than in the past and PS4 has sold less, so even though the PS4 is still selling more, I think they are trying to say it’s not selling as much more as it has been in the past.

      Xbox fanboys have been trying the “momentum” angle for the last 18 months. It never actually seems to get going.

    • Tech junkie

      Well PS4 sales are declining month to month and Xbox are on the rise month to month

      Do you understand what momentum is? It’s not a new game.

    • XbotMK1

      Do you have any proof to back up that claim, Microsoft fanboy? Or is that just another desperate spin/lie that Microsoft fanboys are infamous for?

      what is ur gain/loss if Ps4 wins or XB wins?


      I gain cookies. And weight.

      October will be interesting, with Halo coming out, and Uncharted + price cut for PS4. I expect Halo to sell a lot.

  • Mark

    The fact that both consoles are selling great is the best news, and who knows what damage the new NX may do next year.

  • Mr Xrat

    “Gaining momentum” yet the gap’s been getting consistently wider since the start of the year and the PS4 has a 900,000 unit cushion before muh Halo and muh desperation Black Friday deals (only $299! One day only!) in the Xbone’s strongest market.

    It’s over.

    • Tech junkie

      What’s over exactly?
