Mizuho Securities: PS4 Ranked No. 1 for Hardware Sales in November 2017 in The US, Xbox One Came Second


Precise numbers have not yet been disclosed but, according to reports from Mizuho Securities Equity Research, based on early data from the NPD Group, PlayStation 4 is the best-selling console in the United States in November 2017. Xbox One, however, was a worthy rival, ranking in second place with a difference (in units placed) that seems equal to 10%.

In general, the sales trend in the gaming hardware sector, which also includes the mini-consoles of Nintendo, increased by 44% while on the software front by 2%.

Despite the debut of Xbox One X, PlayStation 4 has therefore managed to dominate the market in the last month, thanks to the excellent results achieved on Black Friday. Both Sony and Microsoft consoles have also sold 40% more than the same period last year.

Nintendo Switch, compared to October, has placed a greater number of units but the numbers recorded are slightly down compared to the sales peaks obtained in the previous months. On the software front, it was Call of Duty: WWII that came out top followed by the Nintendo Switch exclusive Super Mario Odyssey.

Please note that the NPD Group has not yet disclosed the complete and detailed report, therefore, for the complete and accurate result of sales in the field of US gaming hardware, we will have to wait for a little while.
