  PR comments:

Microsoft:

“Thanks to our fans, Xbox One was the best-selling console in September in the U.S. for the third month in a row according to NPD Group as well as the best-selling console in September in the U.K. according to GfK Entertainment UK. In addition, Xbox One was the only gen eight console to see year-over-year growth in September in the U.S., Australia, the U.K., and many other countries worldwide. This success was driven by our fans and their support for Xbox One S, which is the only console available this holiday with built-in UHD 4K Blu-ray, 4K video streaming and HDR for gaming and video. We received an incredible response to Forza Horizon 3, the No. 1 first-party title for September in the U.S., Australia, and U.K. according to NPD Group and GfK Entertainment UK. Global engagement on Xbox Live – the fastest, most reliable gaming network – continues to grow and the number of unique multiplayer users increased 57 percent year-over-year. With the blockbuster launch of Gears of War 4 for Xbox One and Windows 10 this week and the upcoming release of Clubs and Looking for Group on Xbox Live alongside the launches of Dead Rising 4, Battlefield 1, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Dishonored 2, Final Fantasy XV, Titanfall 2, and Watch Dogs 2 in the coming months, Xbox is the best place to game this holiday.”

I suspect it will be PS4.
On that note of Amazon - does anyone know what happened to the xbox S on amazon?

Did they all sell out or something? There is almost none of them in the top 100.

I know this won't effect September, but it is something I've been curious about.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

That why I see it on Amazon is since the Halo 500GB bundle has sold out no other bundle has stepped up as the go-to cheap and best value bundle so Xbox One's on Amazon haven't really been selling and theres a few reasons:

- No flagship Halo 5 500GB stock

- Battlefield 1 500GB not released yet

- 500GB Minecraft bundle is most likely to be bought instore by parents or more casual users

Xbox One S are selling elsewhere and people probably due to the above reasons are taking there purchase elsewhere as the only entry level $299 500GB instock currently is Minecraft leaving only $349 and higher price Limited Edition consoles for sale on Amazon currently.
