According to the NPD results for April (via IGN), the Xbox One has outsold the PlayStation 4 and the Wii U to be the highest selling console for the month of April. This is a surprise, as the PlayStation 4 has been consistently outselling the other consoles in hardware for many months. Needless to say, Microsoft is happy this is happening.
“As the best-selling console in the U.S. in April, fans set record April sales and engagement for Xbox One last month,” said Xbox Marketing corporate VP Mike Nichols. In fact, the Xbox One sales rose 63% from last April’s sales; an impressive number.
Nichols added in his statement: “We would like to thank fans around the world for their continued support of the PS4. According to NPD, PlayStation continues to lead software sales for April 2015 and PS4 remains the cumulative sales leader in the US. We are looking forward to an amazing E3.”
Oh, and it appears that sales for this current generation of consoles is actually outpacing the sales of their previous generation:
“After 18 months on the market for Xbox One and PS4, we are seeing cumulative hardware sales over 50 percent higher than the combined sales of Xbox 360 and PS3 at the same point in their lifecycles,” the report concluded
Interesting, but with E3 on the way, anything and everything can happen in regards to sales. Stay tuned!

We’ve been (im)patiently waiting for developer Shedworks’ Sable since it was first announced way back in 2018. There are so many games out there, with so many styles, that calling something a “unique look” really means something. Sable, somehow, meets 2021 standards of unique. Its spare cel-shaded visuals are rendered
The last 24 hours have been a whirlwind for XBox owners. Early this morning Microsoft made the announcement that they were raising the subscription fee for XBox Live Gold, which up to this point, you kind of needed to play any XBox game online. MS said they were raising the
Microsoft and the XBox team are pretty well known at this point for throwing their cash around to stay competitive. They sent shockwaves through the industry last year when they announced the purchase of Bethesda, publishers of Doom, Dishonored and Wolfenstein. But this behavior goes all the way back to
