According to Microsoft, the Xbox One has been the best-selling console three months in a row.

The NPD numbers are not yet public, but Microsoft has issued a statement celebrating its three month streak on top. According to the statement, the Xbox One was the best-selling console in both the U.S. and U.K. (according to GfK Entertainment U.K.) for the month of September. The statement also cites growth in its Xbox Live user base, and attributes the console's recent sales success to the Xbox One S, Forza Horizon 3, and Gears of War 4.


Our Take
The Xbox One had a rough start, but it seems to have more than caught up to PlayStation 4. I'm curious to see how next month plays out with PlayStation VR. I don't think it will boost PlayStation 4 console sales, but I am curious to see how the headset sells. I am guessing it's going to sell pretty well.
