Xbox One S

Xbox One has been gaining momentum ever since the launch of Xbox One S in August 2016. However, the console has a huge gap between its competitor, PlayStation 4, in terms of install base. Now Microsoft as revealed that Xbox has broken a record in December 2016.

Microsoft has issued a statement that Xbox One had its highest sales numbers ever in December and the console is the best selling console of the second half of 2016.

While it is good to see that both consoles are selling well but this statement from Microsoft raises contradiction as PlayStation 4 sold 6.2 million units alone in Holiday season. We will have to wait for the official NPD numbers which will come out next week till then let us be happy for both consoles.

Recently, Sony revealed the sales numbers for its Holiday season. According to Sony, PlayStation 4 holiday sales were more than 6.2 million units. The data for PlayStation 4 holiday sales was collected worldwide. Combining the PlayStation 4 holiday sales brings the overall units sold for the console to 53.4 million units as of January 1st, 2017.

Also, 50.4 million copies of games were sold during the holiday season, however, these numbers include both physical and digital sales. The biggest contributor to this sales figure seems to be Naughty Dog as their Uncharted 4 has “sold through” more than 8.7 as of December 21st, 2016.

Do you think Xbox One S will be able to top PlayStation 4 sales? Let us know in the comments.
