Xbox One S

Xbox One managed to outsell the PlayStation 4 for the third successive month according to latest NPD numbers. This is not surprising since Microsoft are on a roll recently. A new console in the form on Xbox One S, fantastic first party support in the  form of  Forza Horizon 3 have more or less assured Microsoft a great finish to 2016.

In reaction to this success, Xbox boss Phil Spencer claims this is all down to his fantastic team work, first party support and Windows 10 integration. “Thanks, team effort, XB1S, 1P games on XB1 and Win10, XBL features getting good use, really thankful for all your support,” he said on his Twitter account. He also stated that fan reaction towards Gears of War 4 has been fantastic. “Really proud of the work @CoalitionGears did on GoW4 and reaction from gamers has been fantastic,” he tweeted. The latest NPD numbers have not considered Gears of War 4 because the game out this month so this will make next month’s NPD numbers even more interesting.

On the other hand, we also had Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg react to Xbox One’s success. Giving credit to his team, Greenberg stated that next year will be exciting given the Scorpio is due for launch then.

On a related note, Spencer assured one of the Twitter users that they will be pushing for more backwards compatibility support and possibly hinted that Blue Dragon may be added to the library.
