Sony’s PlayStation 4 continues to outsell Microsoft’s Xbox One worldwide, but according to social networking site Facebook, the Xbox One is more popular in the United States.
The Movato Real Estate Blog recently tallied up the “likes” of Facebook users in the U.S. and found that the Xbox One is preferred in 22 states, while the PS4 is more popular in 19 states. Nine states had a tie. Though the Wii U was part of the survey, it earned less than half the “likes” of either the Xbox One or PS4 in every state.
“On behalf of the entire global team at PlayStation, I want to thank you for your unprecedented support and for making PS4 your next-generation console of choice,” said social media director Sid Shuman on April 16. “We couldn’t have done this without you! And please keep the feedback coming: We are listening.”
PS4 software had sold more than 20.5 million units between retailers and the PlayStation store as of April 13.
On June 9, Microsoft put the Kinect-less Xbox One on sale for $399, $100 less than its original price.
"Your feedback matters to us and it shapes the products and services we build," Xbox head Phil Spencer said in May when he announced the upcoming price cut.
