Top-selling console in US, UK and Australia for October.

Xbox One S

The Xbox One continues its string of success over the PS4. As per data from the NPD Group and Gfk Entertainment, the Xbox One was the best-selling console for October in the US, UK and Australia, making this the fourth straight month that Microsoft’s console has emerged on top.

The streak began in July before the release of the Xbox One S, though it’s only been the best-selling console in the UK and Australia for the past two months.

Along with the release of Gears of War 4, the top-selling platform exclusive in October for US and UK, Forza Horizon 3 has been a strong factor in the console’s success. It’s the best-selling racing game this year though there’s not much competition given how Gran Turismo Sport was delayed into 2017.

Regardless, even with the release of PlayStation VR and PS4 Slim, the Xbox One is managing to hold its own. What are your thoughts on Microsoft’s continued success? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more updates.

  • Reclaimer13

    Xbox one S is the best console on the market right now until Scorpio drops in 10 months.

    • efnet

      I feel the same way, that damn pro is so freaking loud its ridiculous…

    • Luke Skywalker

      did you get yours already? do you feel it’s a worthy upgrade to the ps4 from your point of view?

    • efnet

      I can’t honestly answer that yet as I’ve only messed around with it for a few moments.

    • Luke Skywalker

      oh ok, I respect that answer. but the console being loud is not a good thing in my book.

    • efnet

      It’s kinda high pitched which annoys the heck out of me and i cant imagine anyone claiming its not loud when it actually is.

    • -youjustgotburned-

      Loud? BS. I got mine and its quite as a sleeping kitten.

    • efnet

      Ill make a video showing you when i get home, i have absolutely no reason to lie.

    • Gamez Rule

      My PS4-Pro is not as loud as the first PS4, so more than happy with it.

    But…crazy…whatever.

      Walked in to GAME and Tesco’s and both London stores had sold out in the first day of release, hoping to get more in from other stores etc. When a Tesco worker told me that today they had 30 more PS4 Pro’s just come in stock, they sold with them within 8 mins I was like wow.

      Looks like PS4-Pro is selling fast?

  • Hvd

    if xbox one wins again in november its over for sony.

    • Riggybro

      Yes. But just not in any numerical sense.

  • Mr Xrat

    Meanwhile 3.9 million PS4s were shipped last quarter.

    Still, Xgimps got to nibble into that 1.4 million lead the PS4 has in the US so it’s not all bad for those vermin.

    • Hvd

      all i care about is the usa and xbox is dominating the ps4 in the usa and thats all that matters to me.

      i could care less about world sales.oh when nintendo switch launches say bye bye to the ps4 in japan…lmao

    • Mr Xrat

      1.4 million lead and the Pro is gonna make it bigger. All you care about it just over 25% of the global market.

      That is why you’ll always be a failure. 🙂

    • Aenea

      Ahh, so total number of Xbox Ones sold since 2013 is finally higher than PS4s sold in the US huh?

      What? It isn’t it? So PS4 is still dominating the Xbox One even in the US?

      low dude low
