Lol. MS had its best console month this gen, and Sony still sold more. Guess the X1X isn't the PS4 killer lems were hoping for. Oh well, better luck next gen. ;)

XB1X isn't there to beat PS4 numbers. It's there as an alternate for Gamers who want to take advantage of what Xbox offers with the Best Specs a console can offer.

No one thought the XB1X would be a PS4 "killer".. if you think a 500-600 dollar upgrade would beat a 199 dollar console you're a fucking moron. plain and simple.

However, the fact that the MS brand is trending up hill with no solid new IPs and a fantastic upgrade for those loyal to the brand with the XB1X, MS at this point must improve sales their new games/IP. I hope they announce some stuff this coming year.

MS is doing well after the 2013 E3 disaster.

Poor lems. they were own convinced the XboneX would propel them to victory this month.

Turns out not enough people give a shit about a $500 console with no games.

There's no official number as of yet, I'm not an MS employee.

The fact that Xbox one and the X can sell well after the backlash they've received this past year is phenomenal, they had an extremely healthy UK black friday too.

If you can't accept or realize the fact that MS has improved their console and brand over the past 2 years is insane, they've really tried to please their fanbase and intrigrate new fans who are entering 4k the era with their new TVs.

PS4s power advantage over the XBox was touted as its saving grace. Exclusives don't matter to the average consumer. All of that shit stood on trial this month. Nevermind how many threads we have had over the years touting backwards compatibility as pro-consumer.

@REVOLUTIONfreak: it’s probably some damage control so that MS won’t blacklist them. Of course they would win I n revenue, they just launched a new $500 but they still lost the month so winning in hardware revenue is pointless, especially when PS4 won in both units sold and software sold as well.

More made up bullshit from cows. Hell even the Pro can't out sell the PS4 why would a $500 console out sell a $199 console. You fanboys are getting beyond pathetic making up shit.

Nope not at all. Xbox still had the best month they have ever had. The X was never created to out do the PS4 it is for a select market. This shows the X sold well and that the Xbox brand did well all around. It also shows that the PS4 had a monster month and the Switch did really well.

What does all of this mean. It means out industry is doing just fine and everyone is selling hardware. This is good for the consumer and good for real gamers and not fanboys!

Dude, you're in denial. When new consoles launch they usually post big numbers enough for them to actually win a month. This is probably one of the first times when a company launches a new SKU and still loses the month. This is MS strongest market by far and even with launch hype they still couldn't win the month. It's a disaster any way you look at it. What's gonna happen in January when launch hype dies and they are no longer selling XboneS at $189 huh? Sales will fall off a cliff again. You can keep lying to yourself that everything is fine but we all know the truth. The fact they couldn't even win one month this year in their strongest territory despite a new console launch is troubling.

judging by the most sold games in USA.... big AAA multiplats like COD, assasin creed, battlefield/battlefront, madden, fifa, nba 2k, destiny

these games are what is selling xbox and playstation and keeping ps4 in such high demand.

nintendo is offering a great unique experience. with great first party games like zelda and mario. however it seems games like the AAA multis i listed are more popular than nintendo's games overall.

maybe if mario was on all platforms it would outsell call of duty. if zelda was on all platforms it would outsell assasins creed or battlefront.

it's up to nintendo. i mean they are still making tons of money because they are the richest company in japan above sony. maybe selling their stuff full price instead of sony practically giving theirs away is what keeps them so rich. look at microsoft selling less consoles and still making more money than sony.

The Xbox earned more money in dollars due to the $500 price tag of the X1X and it moving many of those.

This is why you and I get along so well despite belonging to different factions bro. You're objective enough to call out bullshit like this.

MS should be happy they beat their own internal records but this month is definitely not a true win since they came in second despite a new console launch. I wish more lems were like you, it would make this place a lot more fun since people would actually accept ownage when they've been owned. This outright denial and damage control in the face of reality is what's making SW die unfortunately.
