Here's one for the history books. According to The NPD Group, in June 2018, the Nintendo Entertainment System Classic (NES Classic) outsold both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While the PlayStation 4 was the highest-selling platform in terms of revenue, the NES Classic sold the most units. Apparently, this is the first time a NES console has topped monthly sales since NPD tracking began in 1995.
The NPD Group tracks video game sales across the United States each month. Many companies, including Microsoft, utilize its services to get a better understanding of how much product they've sold. Apart from that, it's become somewhat of a competition among gamers. Everyone wants to know which platform did the best.
Aside from sharing these statistics, NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said that Xbox One dollar sales have nearly doubled since last year. Hopefully this trend will continue in the future. In order to make the console more appealing, Microsoft needs to release exclusive sooner rather than later. However, with next-generation machines rumored for 2020, it's unclear just how much of a push the Xbox One can witness.
