Sony PS4 outsells Microsoft Xbox One for February, but the gap closes According to the NPD Group, the Sony PS4 outsold the Microsoft Xbox One again in February, but the gap closed from January.
287,000 PlayStation 4 units were sold for the month, with Microsoft moving 258,000 Xboxes.

"PS4 led hardware sales in February 2014, but by a narrow margin with Xbox One selling over 90 percent of what the PS4 sold in terms of unit sales," NPD's Liam Callahan noted. "However, with Xbox One's higher price point it led hardware sales on a dollar basis."

The video game industry has had a revival since the launch of the two consoles in November, with overall sales up 42 percent year-over-year and 44 percent month-over-month. Game sales were up 41 percent month-over-month but down 11 percent year-over-year due to sales falling for older consoles like the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Sure maybe month to month; but not even close overall. Truth be told it'll be about a year before we see results that matter anyhow. It'll be interesting to see how well Xbox One sold for March though due to Titanfall.

That said, surprised it wasn't reported MS selling a new bundled 360 with 250GB hdd, Borderlands 2 and Forza International. $250 price tag for those interested...
