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.

Consoles are for children, start gaming on your PC.

Sorry. Couldn't make out your infantile video game elitist trolling over the sound of you sucking on your thumb. Grow up and try a new hobby. Maybe video games.

I take offense to that. First of all, I game on BOTH platforms. More on the PC than the PS3/4, mostly because I enjoy 2560x1440 resolution graphics (of which I could have bought two consoles for the two video cards I bought required to run it at high settings...cards that will be outdated in two years).

Second, I don't always sit at home by myself and game. I go places. Family, friends, parties, etc. I take my console with me and make a gaming party and memories with it (and share home videos, pictures, etc. that is on it).

Third, when I do game at home with my PS3 and PS4, I game with my real world friends online since most of them aren't into PC gaming because it's so expensive to keep up with (see above comments of my first point again). Oh, and I'm not using near as much power when I console game over my PC gaming rig.

Everything has its pros and cons, pal.
