Marketing executive Mike Nichols says the console “continued to gain momentum”.
The NPD Report is now available and to no one’s surprise, the PS4 is still the best selling console in the United States for August 2015. That being said, Microsoft announced that the Xbox One “continued to gain” momentum with sales up by 26 percent compared to the same month last year.
Xbox marketing executive Mike Nichols revealed that things are set to get even better for the console due to upcoming games (like Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Forza Motorsport 6), the New Xbox One Experience and backwards compatibility. “We’re excited to further build on this momentum in the months to come.”
The Xbox One had a decent month in August 2015 with regards to game sales – Gears of War: Ultimate Edition ranked third in sales while Rare Replay earned sixth place. What are your thoughts on the “momentum” that the Xbox One is building? Let us know in the comments.
