As commented on by Microsoft, the NPD group’s monthly sales report for August 2016 cites the Xbox One as the top-selling gaming console of the month. Microsoft thanked its fans and attributed the numbers to the Xbox One S release.
Talking about their new system, Microsoft used this opportunity to take a swing at Sony who announced their upcoming PS4 Pro just last week. Sony made the questionable decision to remove the 4K Blu-Ray player from their system, so Microsoft used this as an advantage. “Ours is the only console available this holiday with built-in UHD 4K Blu-ray, 4K video streaming, and HDR for video and gaming,” said the Xbox company.
