NPD Group: Xbox One Outsells PS4 in US For Third Month in Row

Forza Horizon 3 is best-selling first party title.

Posted By | On 14th, Oct. 2016 Under News

Xbox One S

The Xbox One has been going great guns in the past few months. Microsoft announced that the console was the best-selling console in the United States for September as per data from the NPD Group.

That makes this the third month in a row that the Xbox One has beaten the PS4 and become the best-selling console in the United States. It’s especially impressive when you consider the PS4 had been on a best-selling streak since late 2015. The Xbox One S has been a major contributor to the continued success of Microsoft after debuting in August. It’s also possible that the recent announcement of the PS4 Pro – despite the PS4 Slim releasing in September – motivated consumers to wait for the better version before investing in the cheaper option.

If that weren’t enough, Forza Horizon 3 was the best-selling first party title for the month and the Xbox One managed to sell more this past September than September 2015 in the US, UK and Australia regions among current gen consoles.

What are your thoughts on Microsoft’s success? Let us know below.

    Good for Microsoft but we simply want games

    Ponyland will cry as usual.

    PS4 PRO… blah. small update, tricks to get 4k gaming, missing basic features…. and still not sold out of pre orders.

    • Mark

      Dude it’s crazy how the 4K BluRay drive, or lack of it, is a BIG thing now. I honestly think the S model is selling mainly because of it….Sony may have hurt themselves worse than they could’ve seen. But we’ll see

  • -youjustgotburned-

    Good for Microsoft they have done a great job with the Xbox but come November and forward Sony is back to winning NPD’s.

  • crazy_black_man-

    Just until November hits and then its back to the norm. And the PSVR is THE BOMB.

    • Michael

      Stop sniveling, pony. This is the norm. Xbox rules NPD.

    • TheCellGames

      See, defending gimmicks like PSVR, then salty black man here criticizes the Kinect. What a hypocrite.

    • crazy_black_man-

      PSVR is in high demand. MS removed the Kinect port from their newest console for a reason. You sound really stupid right now.

  • crizz1066

    LOL so much for M$ not commenting or caring about sales figures. Still come Nov guess they’ll be back to not caring about sales. When the bottom drops out of the X1 sales!!!

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Do grow up already, you been crying the same crap all over the internet since this news was posted. So Microsoft is boosting that an independent entity released its monthly stats of what hardware sold more big woop, they still havent released or talked about sales numbers.

    • crazy_black_man-

      YOU grow up, you little crybaby. He made a valid comment, and then it was YOU who got angry and responded childishly to it.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Wait, the crazy insecure little mindless insect black man is telling me to grow up? LOL now that’s hilarious. His “valid comment” is as valid as what comes out of your a$$ but who am i kidding its not like you people make valid comments ever but just cry, complain, damage control, grasp at straws and what not over a piece of plastic.

    • crazy_black_man-

      I love how you lessen the value of your Xbox One even further by calling it a “piece of plastic”.

      A piece of plastic is that 12 foot long dark brown thing with the fake molded veins, inside your nightstand drawer, that keeps you up at night.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Oh sorry, I forgot you treat your piece of plastic as if it was some sort of almighty being…even though you don’t use it much.

      BTW Treating a piece of plastic how it is doesn’t mean I’m lessening it’s value but nice try.

    • crazy_black_man-

      Don’t forget to pick up more batteries, Kaitlin Jenner.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      1/10 Mr. Trump try again.

    • crizz1066

      I’m not crying, I’m laughing especially at people like you. It’s called schadenfreude.
      M$ were the one who kept saying sales figures didn’t matter, I’m laughing at how people like you swallow all their bull.
      It’s the reason they released that gimped vcr 2 years ago.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      “schadenfreude” big word for such a little mind especially when it doesn’t even apply in your case but it does apply against you since people are enjoying your displeasure and all the tantrums you throw around over a trivial thing like Microsoft saying they won an NPD. No one is swallowing any bull as much as it is coming out of your mouth child. Grow up and get over it.

    • crizz1066

      Yeah yeah 🙂

      Glad to hear people are talking about me, shows what I’m saying is hitting nerves as it’s right!!!

      If what i am saying is so incorrect, why do you keep coming back, with same argument from just a slightly differnt angle?

      If I’m so wrong, leave me alone, stop giving me the oxygen of publicity. I wouldn’t bother with someone if I felt such contempt, you obviously have for me. Same way i ignore a child!

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Sorry if people won’t take your bull and sorry you can’t handle being corrected, but hey I’m not the one crying here I’m just telling you how it is.

      “Leave me alone! Stop it! I like to eat my own bullsh*t” LOL well fine be alone.

    • crizz1066

      How do you know people don’t take my bull??? Do you know what every person whose ever read my posts think??? No I don’t think so as you just so delusional!!

      Gave you the opportunity to walk away and be the bigger man, but you couldn’t help it and came back again. Gues lots about you there.
      So I’ll end this, as I do see you as the enjoying child now, consistently saying why, why why but why!!!!

    • Mark

      Phil did say they weren’t worried about hardware sales anymore, just Live stats, so ur right lol. Gotta keep it real, they were lying ahaha

  • Riggybro

    Congrats to Microsoft

    For selling approx 8,000 extra units in a country that they normally sell really well in.

  • Mr Xrat

    Only a 45k “win?” The PS4 did double that during off-months. Such a shame the Pro is going to wipe out this little “comeback” and then some. Xgimp rage will be exquisite.

    • TheCellGames

      Mr. Monkeypoop damage control at it’s finest.

    • Makai Ookami

      I know right? Microsoft gets outsold 2:1 by Sony for a couple of years, after losing last generation despite a year’s head start to Sony and Nintendo, and now Microsoft gets a few months when people are waiting for Black Friday deals and Christmas, and the Xboners get their hard on. XD
