Recently we revealed that the Xbox One had outsold the Playstation 4 for two months running right here in the UK, which was the first time this had happened since both consoles have been on the market.

The Xbox One has now built on that success by becoming the best selling of the two major consoles for the fourth consecutive month in the United States, according to data from NPD.

Overall, the Playstation 4 has shifted the most units but the latest figures come on the back of the impressive Xbox showing at E3 earlier this year, the popular arrival of the Xbox One S console bundles and also impressive exclusive titles, and most notably the release of Gears of War 4 which according to GfK is the single best performing platform exclusive in recent months.

Whether or not Xbox One can remain the best seller during November remains to be seen, but Sony’s hopes of reclaiming top spot have now been boosted by the arrival of the PS4 Pro.
