Xbox One records best U.S. sales ever in December 2015, still loses out to PlayStation 4
Xbox One sales reached a new high point in the U.S during December 2015, according to a new report from the research firm The NPD Group. However, it wasn't enough to beat sales of Sony's rival PlayStation 4 for both the month and the entire year of 2015.
According to GamesIndustry.biz:
The NPD Group did not reveal specific hardware sales numbers for the consoles, but it did state that total console hardware sales dropped by 6 percent in December 2015 compared to a year ago, thanks mostly to a huge 71 percent drop in last-generation console sales along with a 32 percent decrease in portable console sales.
The NPD Group also posted an update on sales of both consoles since they launched in November 2013:
Activision's Call of Duty Black Ops III was the best selling game in retail stores in the U.S., both in December 2015 and for the entire year.
