    Xbox One VS PlayStation 4 console wars

    What were the Top 10 best selling games in November 2013 in the United States? I thought it would be interesting to look at with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles both having launched! :)

    The newest NPD numbers are in, and so are the top lists of the highest selling game systems and games for November in America.

    Note: Although not in the Top 10, Nintendo of America announced that when combining digital and physical units for the month, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for 3DS sold 405,000 and Super Mario 3D World for Wii U sold 215,000. Similarly, due to the currently still relatively low user install base, the Xbox One and PS4 exclusives didn’t rank either.

    ** Includes CE, GOTY editions, bundles, etc. but not those bundled with hardware. Physical retail copies only.

    The multiplatform juggernaut that was Call of Duty: Ghost’s release was a major success selling $1 billion worth of games day 1! Here’s the TV commercial filmed with live-action stars, including Riley the dog and Megan Fox.

    System Sales in November 2013:

      1. PlayStation 4 — Sold 2.1 Million Units worldwide!
      2. Xbox One — Sold 909,132 Units in the USA / 2 Million Units worldwide!
      3. Nintendo 3DS — Sold 770,000 Units. (+15%)
      4. Xbox 360 — Sold 647,000 Units.
      5. Nintendo Wii U — Sold 220,000 Units.

    Note: No PS3 nor PS Vita data was released by Sony.

    Sony’s new PlayStation 4 console had the strongest debut (and a week-long lead on the Xbox One) in November. Here’s the “Perfect Day” musical TV ad.

    Analysis of the game and hardware sales numbers:

    Although NPD doesn’t by far track all digital sales, retail still gives a good impression of last month’s bestselling video games.

    To quote NPD industry analyst Liam Callahan…

    About hardware he said: “With the introduction of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, coupled with positive sales for the Nintendo 3DS, sales in November 2013 marked the best November for hardware sales on record. PS4 led U.S. hardware sales for the month, and marked the highest first month sales of a hardware platform on record.

    When looking at sales on an average per-week basis, Xbox One led PS4. Keep in mind, however, that supply typically becomes constrained in the second week after launch. Xbox One was the second highest selling platform for the month, which marked the largest launch for a Microsoft console.”

    About the launch games he said: “The PS4 attach rates are exceeding those of the launch months of both the PS3 and the PS2.”

    Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter said: “NPD figures are a mixed bag. Next-gen has frozen purchase of current-gen games available on both. Nintendo’s new games had a surprisingly weak debut.

    Battlefield 4 is a plus, with surprisingly good sales. They were down 1.1 million last month vs. Battlefield 3, but up 800,000 this month. This reinforces my view on a next-gen “freeze”.”

    [SKU = Stock Keeping Unit. In other words: each game sold.]
