Xbox One Sold More Than PS4 in December, Switch Surpasses Overall Sales

Xbox One Sold More Than PS4 in December, Switch Surpasses Overall Sales

It came to the surprise of many when the reports confirmed that more Switch got sold during Black Friday 2017 than the Sony PS4 and the Xbox One.

Microsoft's Xbox One has consistently trailed Sony's rival PlayStation 4 in sales for the vast majority of the current console generation, which kicked off in November 2013 when both consoles launched.

One of the handful of games under the EA Originals label created to foster indie game development, Fe is heading for release across PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC on 16th February.

This is according to Head of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg, who claims that not only did the Xbox One outsell the PS4 in December 2017, but the console enjoyed its highest-ever sales for any December ever. While also thanking fans and supporters in later tweets.

It's official. The Nintendo Switch is now the record-holder for being the world's fastest selling game console in global history.

Nintendo's innovation seems to have paid back with the Nintendo Switch console having the possibility of matching the massive success of its predecessor, Wii.

This being the internet, someone immediately questioned the tone of Greenberg's tweet, interpreting it to mean PlayStation 4 or Nintendo Switch was the month's top-selling console. Let us know in the comments.
