Sony won by nearly 30,000 sales

Sony's PlayStation 4 pulled out another monthy sales win over Microsoft's Xbox One, although the gap is starting to narrow. 
According to Xbox Wire, Microsoft sold 258,000 Xbox One consoles for the month of February. However, Sony sold around 287,000 PlayStation 4s according to market researchers NPD Group. 
Overall hardware sales rose 42 percent year over year and 44 percent month over month. The top-selling games for February were "Call of Duty: Ghosts," "The Lego Movie Videogame," "NBA 2K14," "Thief" and "Grand Theft Auto V."
The PS4 ended up outselling the Xbox One in January as well, where journalist Geoff Keighley -- who spoke with PlayStation SVP Guy Longworth -- said PS4 sales in January nearly doubled the "nearest next gen competitor," which points to the Xbox One.

But the Xbox One was December 2013's winner with 908,000 consoles sold.

In mid-February, it was reported that Sony had sold 5.3 million PS4s globally since launch.

Sales of both consoles are being watched very closely, since 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. 

Both Microsoft and Sony released their respective consoles a week apart in November 2013, just in time for the holiday season.

No need, nothing to see here...

I haven't bought either and don't want to. Dark Souls 2 is coming out for the PC next month and promises to be superior to all console iterations.

Nothing to see here, move along everybody! Star Citizen and more are coming... and it'll be game over for the consoles.

Dark Souls was a horrible console port that didn't even work out of the box.

As much as I like PC gaming, crap like that is why consoles have such mass appeal. The quality on a lot of PC games needs to be way higher. Developers treat it like an afterthought!

Do you know if DS2 for PC won't be utter garbage this time? I hope so.

It might have been a horrible port (it was) but it didn't stop me from playing it for 130 hours so far. I've loved every single minute of it. There was a simple resolution fix which also added in SSAO and cured most of my complaints. The only minor remaining one was an occasional drop in framerate which doesn't happen much (maybe in only two or three small parts of the game).

From what I hear, DS2 was designed on the PC from the start, then ported to consoles. The PC version will have superior textures among other things.

To be honest, I never really was bothered by the graphical quality of the first game. I thought it looked superb and perfectly captured the essence of that undead world. The sound, as well, was captivating.

I still play System Shock 1, however. So graphics aren't my first concern in any game I play.
