PlayStation 4 Outselling Xbox One in Germany According to Official Sales Figures

August 3, 2014Written by Zarmena Khan


NPD Group’s European counterpart, Media Control GfK, has revealed official sales figures which suggest that Sony’s PlayStation 4 is outselling Microsoft’s Xbox One…by more than double.

During the last nine months, the PlayStation 4 sold 540,000 units whereas the Xbox One sold 170,000 units. On the other hand, Sony’s last-gen console, the PlayStation 3, sold 4,200,000 units while Microsoft’s Xbox 360 sold 2,100,000 in the country. Considering that the PlayStation 4 has sold nine million units worldwide, Germany seems to be accounting for 6% of the total sales. And out of five million Xbox One’s sold, 3.4% were purchased in the country. 

At the moment, the Xbox One can be purchased in Germany for a little less than the PlayStation 4’s price. The former costs €373 without Kinect while the latter costs around €395. 

Germany, of course, does not represent all of Europe, but these are interesting statistics nonetheless. It remains to be seen how Microsoft intends to gain more market share in the region.
