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.
, 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
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.

I don't get Titanfall...
"EA". That's all I need to know. Sim City EA. Battlefield 4 EA.
Even if I had an XB1 I wouldn't get it. But that's just me...
Yeah, reviews are nice. Let's wait and see if the EA servers go down, if they start banning accounts, see if save data gets corrupted, see if there's game killing glitches, etc.

EA don't make Titanfall. In fact they don't have anything to do with Titanfall, other than distributing physical copies to store and having exclusive rights to it on Origin.
They were not involved in the development of the engine (Valve) or the game (all Respawn) and they aren't (thank god) involved in the server back-end (all Azure for XB1 and PC).
The problems with Battlefield, Sim City, etc were all EA - EA handled the online, their teams (Dice and Maxis are owned by EA) handled development and they used their own in-house (seemingly broken) game engines. I wouldn't buy an EA game near release in the near future, but Titanfall is NOT an EA game, it's a game published and distributed by EA.
