Microsoft beat Sony in U.S. console sales in August thanks to Xbox One S
Sales of the Xbox One S helped Microsoft to beat Sony's PlayStation 4 in U.S. hardware console sales in August, according to data from the research firm the NPD Group. Microsoft officially launched the new version of the console in the same month.
As usual, neither Microsoft nor the NPD Group revealed specific unit sales for the Xbox One or Xbox One S, which were apparently both grouped together. The Xbox One S has a smaller design than the standard Xbox One, and can support streaming 4K video and UHD Blu-ray discs. Engadget got a statement from Xbox's Marketing head Mike Nichols, who also took a shot at the lack of a UHD Blu-ray player in the upcoming PlayStation 4 Pro.
This is the second month in a row that Microsoft's Xbox One consoles beat Sony's PlayStation 4 in U.S. sales.

Different rules when we are winning?
So perhaps next time you could tone down the rhetoric.
Fire, ready, aim?
Just making an observation, read into that what you will.
What is it with u blokes wanting to lick the balls of the journos?
I would hate to be a Sony fanboy posting here when an xbox fan gets pitchforked for a basic and truthful observation.
U bi tches are hilarious.
Why is this so hard? My observation is correct, I didn't say who was reporting it , that's why I said "we". It was a generalization, so its u that is incorrect.
I've had a good laugh, been fun :)
Most fun I've had in ages lol
Shame I cant see the mark downs on my WP? Was looking forward to a large negative score.
What's with that on mobile?
