The current generation consoles have been around for over 18 months now, with the PlayStation 4 being the more successful of the two. Until last month, that is.




Research firm NPD has released a new report, stating that the Xbox One topped the PS4 last month to become the best-selling console of April. With around 20 million PS4 consoles sold so far, Microsoft needs as much help as it can get to catch up, with around 12 million Xbox One consoles sold to date.


Xbox marketing boss Mike Nichols talked with GamesBeat, where he said: "As the best-selling console in the U.S. in April, fans set record April sales and engagement for Xbox One last month. Xbox One console sales in the U.S. increased 63 percent in April 2015 compared to April 2014 and Xbox Live comparisons showed the number of active global users [Xbox One and Xbox 360] grew 24 percent. We are grateful to our fans for their passion and support and are looking forward to sharing more on the best game lineup in Xbox history at E3".
