The PS4 vs Xbox One sales battle continues

The PS4 has outsold the Xbox One for the fourth consecutive month, highlighting Sony’s early dominance in the next-gen console wars.

With the Xbox One having been plagued by slow sales since launch last November, Microsoft’s gamer has been subjected to a number of official and retailer introduced price cuts.

However, despite these price cut, new figures have revealed that, in the US at least, Xbox One sales throughout April were significantly lower than those of the PS4.

Although precise monthly sales figures for the PS4 have yet to be given, the console is said to have shifted far more than the 115,000 Xbox One units sold during the window.

Despite the Xbox One slumping behind its biggest rival, monthly figures have shown that the next-gen console is far outstripping sales of its predecessor.

"Life to date, sales of PS4 and Xbox One hardware have more than doubled the combined sales of PS3 and 360 hardware through their first six months of sales,” NPD analyst Liam Callahan stated.

He added: “PS4 software combined with Xbox One software sales are up over 40 percent compared to sales of the PS3 and Xbox 360 through their first six months.”

Although Nintendo’s console offers have been somewhat left in the shadows in recent months, Callahan has suggested the Wii U is on the up.

He stated: “Wii U software sales were up over last year by over 80 percent.”

Earlier this week Microsoft confirmed that it will launch an Xbox One without a Kinect accessory. With the motion-sensing peripheral having previously been a mandatory addition to the One, the Kinect-free console will launch next month with a £349 price tag.
