Xbox One Sells 1.5 Million Units in December 2016, Nearly Ties With PS4 – Report
PS4 Pro apparently sold 238,000 units in December.
With the Holiday season coming to a close and PS4 having a monstrous year already (with more than 50 million units sold as of December 7th), who eked out the highest console sales in December 2016 for the United States?
While the NPD Group’s report is usually the go-to for such information, industry sources who receive the actual figures spoke to Windows Central about the number of units sold in December. The Xbox One and Xbox One S sold 1,511,000 units combined while the PS4 sold 1,568,000 units. The PS4 Pro apparently made up 238,000 units sold which was the difference maker for Sony being on top. Nonetheless, Xbox saw a 10 percent increase in sales year-over-over for December.
Take this with a grain of salt but the site vouches for the validity of its sources. It’s certainly interesting to see the reception of PS4 Pro especially with Project Scorpio out later this year. Stay tuned for more details and let us know what you think in the comments.
