The battle for sales supremacy has been a catalyst for dominance in the video game industry since multiple hardware devices were offered to the consumer. With the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Wii U battling it out this past holiday season, any news regarding how these platforms are doing is an indication of their future success within the market.
Although the PlayStaion 4 has taken an early sales lead, it has not stopped Microsoft from boasting some pretty impressive sales figures themselves. With over 2 million world wide sales in 18 days they were off to a fantastic start..
Today, NPD sales report that the Xbox One and Xbox 360 were the top selling consoles for each respected generation of gaming consoles in the United States within the month of December. With 908,000 Xbox One's and 643,000 Xbox 360's sold. This is great news for the industry as a whole. Competition is what drives innovation; as long as this industry has fresh, competitive hardware competing with each other it only leads to more innovative features and software.
