U.S. consumers wanted new video game hardware in November, and they spent a ton of money getting the latest Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo devices. This led to a strong month for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. In fact, November doesn't have a clear winner in terms of hardware sales. Gamers bought more PS4s than Xbox Ones or Nintendo Switch systems, but people also spent more money buying Xbox Ones than PS4s or Nintendo's Switch, according to industry tracking firm The NPD Group.
Admin note because people *seem* confused.
Sony sold more consoles than the competition, this affects market share but not at a large level so it really just maintains market share they already had. Microsoft brought in the most revenue from hardware sales, which is a measurement of total that consumers paid and not profit. Switch sold a lot of hardware as well without any sales deals. We are living in a period of great competition between the three, which is what we all should want for more services, support, and games going forward.
