After beating the Xbox One in units sold in 2013 and in January 2014, Sony’s PlayStation 4 again was the top selling console in February, according to research firm NPD Group.
But the margin by which the PlayStation 4 outsold the Xbox One apparently narrowed.
“PS4 led hardware sales in February 2014, but by a narrow margin with Xbox One selling over 90% of what the PS4 sold in terms of unit sales,” Liam Callahan, an NPD Group analyst, said in a news release. “However, with Xbox One’s higher price point it led hardware sales on a dollar basis.”
In January, PlayStation 4 sales were reportedly nearly double that of Xbox One sales, according to a Bloomberg report.
Overall, console sales in February this year were up 42 percent from February 2013, according to NPD Group.
