The removal of the Kinect from Xbox One has prompted a big increase in sales for the Xbox One, but it’s still struggling to catch up to the PS4. According to new numbers from NPD, Sony’s is the top-selling U.S. next-gen console for June, which marks the sixth month in a row it has collected that honor. Despite the price of the Xbox One dropping by $100, Microsoft is still having trouble beating PS4 sales.
Sony’s console might be the highest-selling of any console available, too, as NPD says that total sales for both PS4 and Xbox One were higher than those for the Xbox 360 and PS3 as well.
Microsoft boasted about its console sales doubling last week, but failed to provide any specifics about how many devices were actually sold. Sony likewise doesn’t reveal specifics, so its difficult to judge just how well both consoles are doing.
