Neither Sony nor Microsoft have released any hardware numbers for the month of January yet

Now that the holiday season is over and many have put their wallets away to recover, it's time to see which console is still being purchased in the off-season, and ultimately, which console comes out on top: Microsoft's Xbox One or Sony's PlayStation 4?
 
According to a tweet by journalist Geoff Keighley, the PS4 is a clear winner. Keighley spoke with PlayStation SVP Guy Longworth, who said PS4 sales in January nearly doubled the "nearest next gen competitor," which points to the Xbox One. 
 
PlayStation marketing VP John Koller later confirmed the statement, adding that Sony has sold every PS4 available in the U.S. since launch.

Microsoft, having clearly been beat for the month of January, decided not to talk about hardware sales. Instead, it focused on software in a recent press release, boasting 2.27 million games sold for the month and capturing 47 percent of software market share. 

While neither Sony nor Microsoft have released any hardware numbers for the month of January yet, the Xbox One was December's winner with 908,000 consoles sold. 

But many believe the months after the holiday season are more telling of which console wins the race rather than the November-December period, when everyone is spending anyway.

It's hard to say which console will win on hardware sales from here. On one hand you have the PS4, which is $100 cheaper and will be released in Japan next week, likely offering a big sales boost. On the other, you have the popular "Titanfall" game coming to Xbox One in March, which could prompt those who have been on the fence about buying the console to take the plunge.
