Next-Gen Launch Weekends On eBay: PS4 Outsells Xbox One
Well, maybe it's just because there are more Xbox One consoles available to purchase in stores...? Possibly.
During the PlayStation 4 launch - between November 15 and 17 - eBay reported that over 10,000 systems were sold at the online auction house, and the average selling cost was about $590. But the numbers are a little different for Microsoft's console.
While eBay wouldn't reveal the average selling cost, they did say that close to 7,000 Xbox One units were sold on eBay during the November 22-24 launch period. The gap may be even more significant, as the PS4 only launched in North America, while the Xbox One released in 13 territories around the globe. Both Sony and Microsoft have announced that their new systems sold over 1 million consoles on launch day; again, though, the launch regions for each are significant.
We'll have to see how the sales numbers look after the holiday rush is over.
