There is no arguing the fact that Microsoft has come out all guns blazing, and for the month of October was again the bestselling console in the US. However there was some good news for Sony as well according to the latest NPD report.
The PS4 Slim 500 GB Uncharted 4 : A Thief’s End bundle was the bestselling console SKU, and amounted to a whopping 17 percent of total hardware sales for the month of October.

On the other hand the sales for the Xbox One grew by 8% year over year, and the various configurations that it has to offer beat out the PS4 options currently available.
Microsoft has been having a stellar year , and nearly all of its exclusives have been well received, and the console sales number indicate that Xbox One is back in the console wars , and is here to stay. However the $ 400 PS4 Pro might tilt the tide in favor of Sony as its counterpart the Xbox One Scorpio won’t be released until the latter half of 2017.
At this point in time though Xbox fans can rejoice as their console continues to dominate the market and display its superiority to its counterpart, as this has been the fourth straight month that the console has managed to remain at the top of the sales charts. It remains to be seen though if they will be there come the sales report for the month of November though.
