There is no denying that this has been a big week for Microsoft's Xbox One console. Just yesterday, Microsoft released the New Xbox One Experience (NXOE) update which brings an entirely redesigned interface and backwards compatibility with a ton of Xbox 360 games. If this wasn't enough, Microsoft has now released a statement announcing that the Xbox One console has outsold the PS4 for the month of October.
Though NPD has yet to release the data, several Xbox team members have taken to Twitter to announced the news. According to Microsoft, sales of the console were up 81% over the same month last year. Halo 5 also topped the charts for last month, ranking number one overall.
1.) Halo 5: Guardians (XBO)
2.) NBA 2K16 (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3) [Note: Second Month]
3.) Assassin's Creed: Syndicate (PS4, XBO)
4.) Madden NFL 16 (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3)
5.) WWE 2K16 (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3)
6.) FIFA 16 (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3)
7.) Destiny: The Taken King (PS4, XBO, 360, PS3)
8.) Yoshi's Wooly World (NWU)
9.) Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (PS4)
10.) Rock Band 4 (XBO, PS4)
It's no secret that Microsoft's console had a rough start, but the Xbox team has been hard at work listening to feedback and focusing on introducing new console bundles and premium hardware. Needless to say, the battle for console sale supremacy is only going to heat up more as we enter the crucial holiday season.
