According to the latest NPD report, Microsoft’s Xbox One had its best January month sales to date in the US. But even this high number was not enough to beat Sony PS sales in the same time period.
Mike Nichols, corporate vice president of Xbox Marketing said the following regarding the sales results,
“Thanks to continued support by our fans, 2017 is off to a strong start as Xbox One game hours grew 21 percent year-over-year. In addition, in the U.S., Xbox One had its best January to date and was the only eighth generation console that saw growth in January compared to the prior year according to NPD Group. Team Xbox is committed to delivering the best gaming experiences for our fans.”
It is important to note that Microsoft achieved this sales number despite not having any significant games launch on its platform.
