  PR comments:

Microsoft:

“Thanks to our fans and their excitement for new Xbox One games and the recently launched Xbox One S — which is the only console available this holiday with built-in UHD 4K Blu-ray, 4K video streaming, and HDR for video and gaming — Xbox One was the best-selling console in the U.S. in August, according to NPD Group. In addition, we continue to see strong engagement on Xbox Live — the fastest, most reliable gaming network — with total global gaming hours on Xbox One consoles increasing 42 percent year-over-year. We’ve also received an incredible response to Xbox Design Lab, which saw millions of visits to the site and hundreds of thousands of designs created by fans. We’re excited to launch Clubs and Looking for Group on Xbox Live broadly this holiday alongside some of our biggest titles for the year, including ReCore, Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4 and Dead Rising 4.”

Won bet with t3mporary_126 - I correctly predicted that the Wii U's LTD at the end of 2014 would be closer to 9 million than 10 million. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6673287

I assume that the XBO will be on top, but I guess we'll find out very shortly if that's the case.



Oh snap! Forgot. Hopefully we get some hardware numbers.



Wow, completely forgot about this!

308k > XB1 > 202k (using data from previous NPD threads, 308k = August 2011, 202k = August 2015). Best case scenario (307k) XB1 is up 51.98% YoY.

Sorry if I fucked anything up, I've been having an insane headache the last few days.

While I think it is clear Xbox slim > ps4.
How will Nintendo (really just the 3ds) do?
