It was also shown that Black Ops 3 at retail sold more on Xbox One than on PS4 console in the US. In terms of consoles however, the PlayStation 4 outsold the Xbox One in November.
“Black Ops III was the largest release in North America in November by a wide-margin in both units and dollars sold-thru. According to NPD, Call of Duty also was the largest release of any title in North America since 2013, based on physical units sold at retail in its launch month.

And our community has responded enthusiastically, driving engagement to new franchise highs on next gen consoles in its first month of release..”
