Wedbush Securities has published a preview of its software sales figure estimates for November 2013 (the launch month of both the PS4 and the Xbox One) and thinks that Sony will have sold around 1.25 million Playstation 4 consoles in the United States versus the 750,000 Xbox One consoles it believes Microsoft has managed to sell.
As we recently reported, the Playstation 4 broke through the magical two million sales number, on a world-wide basis, by December 1. Meanwhile more than one million Xbox One consoles are confirmed to have been sold upon its launch.
At least in terms of the United States, the 1.25 million versus 750K figures for the PS4 and Xbox One respectively represent a pretty massive gap of 500,000 consoles, or about two thirds of the total number of Xbox One consoles sold in the United States overall.
If Microsoft can’t close that gap, then it might blow out as we progress further into the next generation. That said, it is VERY early to making such calls.
