TBH I've been seeing way too many of these silly sales comparison articles. Almost every gaming journalist websites seems to be constantly talking about it. Granted, I'm aware that in the current state of games available for each console, there isn't a whole lot to comment on in terms of games, but honestly I tire of constantly reading of how "so and so outsold so and so, but so and so did it faster, but so and so sold more here" and all that.
We've been working hard at Neo to try and avoid the sensationalized stuff coming from Microsoft and Sony, but at the same time hard numbers are good for discussion. Stuff like the NPD info here is more for individual game sales vs. console sales numbers, though Microsofts 900,000 in 9 days number is interesting.

When we do post numbers, we certain to go out of our way to paint them in an honest way and point out the spin as much as possible.
It's not the fault of you guys. It was more in general across a variety of different gaming journalism websites, for a while the only thing I was hearing was from most of them were sales figures. Individually, each website is at no fault for reporting on it, but collectively it felt like that's the only thing everyone was talking about.

Sony managed to sell 1 million PS4s within 24 hours. Microsoft meanwhile since confirmed it sold some 909,132 Xbox One consoles within the final nine days of November, which would in fact make it faster selling by units per day
Am I crazy or is that not true? Sony sells 1 million in a day, Microsoft sell 900,000 in 9 days. How does that make the Xbox faster?
I must have missed something.

Xbox One was released in 13 different countries whilst PS4 came out in two initially.
^This. What a disproportionate comparison.
Agreed. I don't know how anyone could take those comparisons seriously when their markets were so disproportionate. Honestly, with all the shady backwards business dealing MS was doing prior to launch, I'm surprised the One is doing so well.
