Xbox One Wins August NPD

Based on information from the NPD group, the Xbox One was the top-selling console for August 2016. This is the second month in a row that Microsoft has won the NPD after Sony has dominated this generation.

The Xbox One S launched in August with three models, a 2 TB, 1 TB, and 500 GB. The 1 TB came with Madden 17 while the 500 GB game with Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Halo 5: Guardians.

It’ll be interesting to see how the rest of the year pans out as Sony has just announced a new slim version of the PlayStation 4 and the new PlayStation 4 Pro set to release in November of this year.
