After winning the month of October 2015 in U.S. console sales, Microsoft's Xbox One was behind Sony's PlayStation 4 again for the month of November. The research firm the NPD Group stated that total hardware sales in November went up to $1.12 billion.

As usual, neither Microsoft nor Sony revealed any specific hardware sales numbers for their consoles. However, the NPD Group's Liam Callahan did say that both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are selling quite well:

"After 25 months, the combined sales for the PS4 and the XBO are 47 percent higher than the combined sales for 25 months of PS3 and Xbox 360 hardware sales."

Software sales were still down for the month of November, according to Callahan:

"New physical software sales decreased by 7 percent as portable software sales drop 66 percent with console software sales down a modest 1 percent. Within consoles, 8th generation software sales increased by 37 percent, and largely offset the decrease in spending for 7th generation consoles, which decreased by 60 percent,"

Call of Duty: Black Ops III was the best selling game for the month of November 2015, followed by Fallout 4, Star Wars: Battlefront, Madden NFL 2016 and NBA 2K16.
