  PR comments:

Sony:

“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.”

Microsoft:

“Last month was our best November ever in the U.S. for Xbox One, setting new records for console sales, game sales and Xbox Live engagement. The most critically-acclaimed holiday lineup of exclusives in Xbox history helped drive 44 percent growth in Xbox Live hours over last November, and 72 percent growth in U.S. first-party retail game sales comparing sales from August through November in 2015 to the same period last year. It’s amazing to see the energy from Xbox fans for exclusives like ‘Halo 5: Guardians,’ ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider,’ ‘Forza Motorsport 6,’ ‘Gears of War: Ultimate Edition’ and ‘Rare Replay,’ for the incredible catalog of third-party games on Xbox One and for Xbox One Backward Compatibility, which launched in November. This holiday is shaping up to be a great one for our industry and for Xbox fans.”

Around the Network

Thanks to Machina for having the data on time for NPD!



Glad to see lots of Wii U games doing well this month. Especially Splatoon!Sucks that the 3DS was very weak this year (For the west that is, while in Japan is quite the opposite)



Pocky Lover Boy! 

yayyyyy, Yokai Watch is bombing (hopefuly)



Hope we get some of the niche numbers this month. Want to see how far off SAO and Rodea are. I'm guessing a lot.



Around the Network

Looking good Boutros!



I predict a bloodbath for vgchartz.

Everyone will laugh at these numbers and the difference with NPD.



Slight correction, the Xbox One did 1,230,000 in November 2014 according to the NPD.



Won bet with t3mporary_126 - I correctly predicted that the Wii U's LTD at the end of 2014 would be closer to 9 million than 10 million. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6673287

Looks like Xbox is set to win.



I predict that VGC overtracked the XBO by at least 200k. There's just no way it did as well as it did last November.
