Sony’s PlayStation 4 beat Xbox One sales in the U.S. during November, according to market research firm NPD. The NPD Group’s monthly sales report won’t be released to the public until next week, but a Sony spokesperson confirmed the news with GameSpot. The spokesperson didn’t reveal specific numbers.

The Xbox has been the top-selling console in the U.S. since July, thanks to the release of the Xbox One S.

"We have seen strong momentum for Xbox One since announcing the new Xbox One S at E3 in June. That momentum continued in November as gaming consoles were once again among the most sought-after products to buy over Black Friday weekend," said Xbox marketing VP Mike Nichols.

Microsoft also saw major engagement among Xbox One owners on Xbox Live as fans took advantage of new games and deals. “In fact, the total players online on Sunday, Nov. 27 was up 40 percent compared to last year,” said Nichols.

November was a big month for Sony, as it launched the PlayStation 4 Pro. The Slim PS4 revision launched in September, which was followed by the PlayStation VR in October. At the time, neither the Slim PS4 or PlayStation VR beat the Xbox One sales in the U.S.

Sony recently announced it’s reducing the price for the PlayStation 4. Starting Dec. 11, Sony will sell the Uncharted 4 PS4 Slim bundle for $250 in the U.S. That’s the same price that the PS4 cost on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Sony hasn’t said which major retailers will offer the deal, but keep an eye out for the sale Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and GameStop.

We should have more information of NPD November report by Dec. 15.
