Xbox One Outsells PS4 For the Third Month in a Row in the US; Wins in the UK as Well

on October 13, 2016 6:09 PM

Xbox One seems to be holding fast on its momentum, as today Microsoft announced that the console was the best selling in the US for the third month in a row according to NPD, and it also grabbed a win in the UK according to GfK Entertainment.

We also learn that the console was the only current-gen console to grow yea-on-year in September in the United States, Australia, the UK and other countries around the world.

Forza Horizon 3 was also the best selling first party title in the US, UK and Australia. The list of stats also includes a 57% increase year-on-year of unique multiplayer users on Xbox Live.

It’s interesting to see how the Xbox One managed to hold on to the top spot despite the release of the slimmer CUH-2000 PS4. The coming months will also be interesting, and we’ll see if the momentum will stay on Microsoft’s side even in October and November, with Sony launching PlayStation VR and the PS4 Pro in close succession.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
