NPD: Xbox One outsold PS4 in April

Xbox One April 2015 Sales

For one month at least, Microsoft got a break from being Sony’s punching bag in the console sales race. GamesBeat reports that NPD’s April sales numbers show the Xbox One outselling the PlayStation 4 last month for the first time since January.

“As the best-selling console in the U.S. in April, fans set record April sales and engagement for Xbox One last month,” Xbox marketing boss Mike Nichols told GamesBeat in response to the April figures. “Xbox One console sales in the U.S. increased 63 percent in April 2015 compared to April 2014, and Xbox Live comparisons showed the number of active global users [Xbox One and Xbox 360] grew 24 percent. We are grateful to our fans for their passion and support and are looking forward to sharing more on the best game lineup in Xbox history at E3.”

Last month’s sales results mean that Microsoft’s next-gen console has outsold Sony’s in the United States for half of the first four months of 2015. No doubt as a result of a temporary price cut, the Xbox One also dominated the hardware sales charts during the crucial retail months of November and December in 2014.

Last month was a big month for the Xbox One, as Microsoft reported that April’s NPD Group results showed the Xbox One continuing to sit on top in life-to-date software sales. Driving these sales was a game that was not available on any other next-gen console, Titanfall. Popular XBLA title Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition finished fourth.

As usual, Xbox One did not come out on top in console sales, trailing behind Sony’s PlayStation 4. However, life-to-date the Xbox One has more cumulative software units sold than any other eighth generation home console. In its first six months on the market, the Xbox One sold over 76 percent more units than the Xbox 360 did during its debut. Microsoft hopes that sales of the Xbox One will grow even faster with the release of the $399 Kinect-less version releasing on June 9.
