Rejoice Xbox fans, all thanks to the holiday season, Xbox One outsold the PlayStation 4 last month. According to a tweet by Aaron Greenberg, Head of Xbox Games Marketing, an unreleased NPD data has reported that Xbox One has its the highest console share for December.
He further says that Xbox One did outsell PlayStation 4 to gain 2nd position. 1st position is held by Nintendo Switch which was the most talked console and it is also the best selling console in the US.
It looks like Microsoft’s most powerful console, Xbox One X is increasing the sales. With 12 GB RAM, 4K native gaming, powerful Radeon GPU, HDR and Dolby Atmos support and many more, Xbox One X is an overkill.

As the company has given up on mobile, their focus on the gaming industry is constantly growing and efforts are finally paying off. We are still waiting for the NPD reports which would be released later this week.
Was trying to just thank folks for supporting us and the incredible success following the launch of Xbox One X. But yes Xbox outsold PS4 in December for Gen 8 consoles according to NPD data, while Nintendo also had a great month as Switch had most overall units.
