Microsoft’s Xbox One S has been outselling the PlayStation 4 since it’s launch. While Sony had the upper hand for quite a few years in terms of overall sales generated each month, Microsoft on the other hand has been enjoying massive success after their launch of the Xbox One S according to recent reports by the NPD, a research firm.
Even with Sony launching and PlayStation 4 Slim back in September, it seems like gamers are preferring Microsoft’s newer Xbox One S over Sony’s offering.
Microsoft in a statement said:
“Thanks to the passion of Xbox fans worldwide and their continued excitement for Xbox One S, Xbox One was once again the best-selling console in October in the U.S., U.K. and Australia according to NPD Group and GfK Entertainment. Xbox One has been the best-selling console in the U.S. for the past four months, and in the U.K. and Australia in each of the last two months”
While that may be disappointing for Sony, it’ll be interesting to see how beastly Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro wins over gamers this holiday, especially with that aggressive price tag. With Microsoft being aware of Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro landing next month, Microsoft added some teasers to the deals that Microsoft will be offering to Xbox gamers this Christmas, he quoted:
“With over 100 award-winning exclusive games, the fastest and most reliable gaming network with Xbox Live, built-in UHD 4K Blu-ray and 4K video streaming support and HDR for gaming and video, Xbox One S is the ultimate games and 4K entertainment system. New game launches like Gears of War 4 and Battlefield 1, and continued engagement with an exceptionally strong catalog of games on Xbox One, helped increase the number of Xbox Live multiplayer gamers by 52 percent compared to last year. Gears of War 4 was also the No. 1 platform-exclusive title for October in the U.S. and U.K., according to NPD Group and GfK Entertainment, while Forza Horizon 3 became the year’s best-selling and highest-rated racing game, further strengthening Forza as the most successful racing franchise on any platform this generation. We are grateful to our community for their continued support and look forward to a great holiday season.”
