It looks like the Superbowl of console sales (Black Friday) was won by the Xbox One. It could be because of the 4K Blu-ray player which played a big role in what looks to be Microsoft’s 5th straight NPD win.

Xbox One obliterated PS4 once again

It looks like the Xbox One got the win on Black Friday. Countdown to mayonnaise day when we get those November NPD reports and Xbox One wins a 5th straight month. It won when the PS4 Slim released, won when PSVR released and won when the PS4 Pro released.

Talking to Thurrott, Microsoft’s Xbox marketing VP expressed his hopes about Microsoft winning the November and December NPD. “There was strong demand for Xbox hardware, accessories, games and Xbox Live engagement on Black Friday, based on initial results, with a strong start to the holiday season”, Nichols told Thurrott.

Xbox One is winning NPD after NPD now. It’s winning in the UK. Xbox live is doing far better than PSN. Xbox is getting 4 free games a month and better free games. The UI actually gets meaningful updates. Even when you bring up exclusives you’re forced to look at all the delays and disappointments and the fact Xbox has clearly hit more dates and has the better games this year.

Sure Sony may have the lead in shipped consoles, but they have a lot of catching up to do in terms of listening to the community, actually releasing games and improving PSN. The only tangible benefit to more sales is more online players. Yet when we look at player population, PS4 games never have double the players. They barely even use mics compared to people on Xbox. This is easily anecdotally proven if you had even played both consoles online for just a couple hours.

    Ryse looks like s**t and it plays like s**t too. You know things are bad when you losers are still clinging to an awful launch game.

  • Revolver Ocelot

    Two indies and a remaster; all games that were on Plus long ago. You’re really struggling for reasons to talk up that dust collecting Xbone of yours. How’s your sad little poll doing? Maybe you can watch a few movies while you wait for the final results.

    This article reads like it’s written by a mentally ill twelve year old who spanks it to his XB1. Congrats on your mom letting you use the computer long enough to make the article.

    You can read, right? Considering your record, it would be surprising, loser.

    Again, you are using Crapgamer as a source.

    Why is this article verbatim what cr*pgamer said in his recent video on the topic (uploaded before this article went live) and why can I not find the source for the opening paragraph?

  • Javier Rosado

    Look at all this pony mad about this article,lol

  • Revolver Ocelot

    That’s not what early reports are saying at all, but I understand websites need cl*ckbait for frustrated Xbox losers.

    • Javier Rosado

      Aren’t you the looser that comments on all xbox articles at vg24/7.com? Wow what a looser you are, you truly are a freaking pony!!

    Ridiculous article written by an xbox fanboy

  • Eggman

    What a awful site and poorly written article. PS4 dominated Xbox One hands down. Selling well over 2 million consoles and dominating Amazon sales charts for days now. MS has not chance – Xbox One is too weak and has bad games.

    • Gamertag:WECKLESS

      Sony Really mesed up not putting A 4K Blu-ray Player in the Pro And Microsoft is Taking full Advantage. What bad games do you speak of on Xbox?

      • Eggman

        No one cares about 4K bluray, physical media has been dying for years. The PS4 just sold over 2 million in the last week, people buy gaming consoles for video games and the PS4 has hundreds of more games. The PS4 also has the highest rated games, 100 more with an average rating of 75+.

        • Gamertag:WECKLESS

          If You Have A 4K TV The best way to watch 4K media is having the Physical copy #Facts With Backwards compatibility Also Xbox is the place to be.

          • Eggman

            Physical media has been the best way for years, the thing is no one cares and just uses digital media, hence why digital media is dying.

            If you bought a new console to play old games than sure Xbox One is the way to go but if you want new games PS4 has hundreds more.

            You can always just buy a last gen console too and play every game instead of waiting for MS to unlock them. Makes sense right?

            PS4 is more powerful with more games – both indie and AAA, better performing exclusives, better rated exclusives, only console with VR, most powerful console, best HDR support, best first party support and second and third party as well, much more variety and dozens of more exclusives announced.

            MS is falling way behind in what matter on a new console and that is new games.

          • Gamertag:WECKLESS

            Name 10 Games that PS4 Has That Just Came Out That Xbox One Dose not Have?

          • Eggman

            There’s hundreds of them but sure. Infamous, Uncharted 4, Ratchet & Clank, 3 MLB The Show games, Bloodborne, King of Fighter XIV, Street Fighter 5, DriveClub, World of Final Fantasy, Guilty Gear, PlanetSide 2, Until Dawn, Dragon Quest Builders, LBP3, FFXIV and many many more.

            Just check out how many more games rated 75+ on ps4 compared to Xbox one on metacritic. 311 for PS4 only 193 for Xbox One

          • Orion Wolf

            You’re talking to a triggered PS fanboy – the sales topic is something they’ve prided themselves in from the get go, as if Sony was sending out checks if they “won” that month.

            TLDR; it’s like talking to a wall.

          • Gamertag:WECKLESS

            Every Time there Back into a corner My Pc is better start Spewing out of there mouth And Xbox Has no Exclusive Games because i can play them on PC But you need Windows 10 (Microsoft to play Them) So Very pathetic.

          • Orion Wolf

            Some of the PS exclusives they’ve prided themselves in (for quite a long time) are going multiplat and “thanks” to PS Now (which they completely ignore as an argument … I “wonder” why /s) I could play quite a few of those on either my PC or TV … albeit mostly ps3 games, but ps4 games aren’t that far away, imo. Because Sony (as any other company) likes $ and PC is another viable source of $.

            In regards to PC, I find it funny how they claim they can play all the xb1 exclusives on their PCs and the exclusives work and look so much better.

            Well, I’ve got a win10 PC, and as you stated only win10 PCs (games have to be written for the UWP) can play xb1 games.

            Moreover, the only triple A exclusive (currently at least) available outside the Windows store is QB, everything else you can play only if you have a Win10 PC. Another matter is that to play any of the games in the WS you have to have a considerably powerful PC to run any of the games available. To run FH3 at 1080p (ultra settings) you would need a 1080 GPU ($600) and an equally decent CPU, RAM, SSD etc – I have to wonder how many of the fanboys actually own a 1080 aka $600 worth of GPU, beside everything else that’s needed.

            In addition, and as if that wasn’t enough, most PC gamers hate the WS and would rather wait for a Steam/GoG etc. release of the games, even if that might never happen; let alone PS fanboy who hate everything Microsoft related.

            So yeah … so much about those very “informed” arguments ps fanboys like to use.

          • Revolver Ocelot

            There are no Xbone exclusives anymore at all.

            Those poorly-optimised former exclusives does not make the Xbone look good.

            Poorly informed is you, Orion Wolf! It’s not like you don’t have a record for that.

            Xbox One S Was first with HDR Suppot & will Have Oculus Rift support in December. Let me Know When God Of War Comes Out Or Spiderman.

          • Eggman

            It was the first but the PS4 already had many more games with HDR support than the Xbox One. That is how poorly MS supports their console.

            You’ll have to buy an entire new console too, all the good VR exclusives are on PS4. Much more coming to PS4 than just those two games while you wait for more Halo, Gears and Forza to play just like every year.

          • Gamertag:WECKLESS

            You can play oculus Rift on Xbox One S & Project Scorpio And games in VR on Project Scorpio will Run And look Better than PlayStation Pro. Dead Rising 4 is right around the corner. Forza Horizon 3 Is The Best Racing game out there Fact. And Uncharted 4 Has to copy Gears for with new DLC Calling it Survival mode AKA Horde mode. Xbox Has Games You are Just A PlayStation Fan And Im A Xbox Fan So This Conversion Can Go On Forever. Enjoy PlayStation And I Will Enjoy Xbox and Happy Gameing to All.

          • Eggman

            You will never be able to play any VR games with Xbox ONE S, it isn’t powerful enough and MS is too cheap to provide you with their own VR. Scorpio isn’t out for another year and is a useless machine. I already have a PC that plays all Xbox games better than the Scorpio and it does much much more since Xbox One has no exclusives.

            You think Gears is the first game to have a survival mode? You really do have no clue about gaming. Explains why you are an xbox fanboy tho.

            PS4Pro patch comes out in a couple weeks and it still performs much better than on Xbox One. Do you subscribe to “Xbox fan daily misinformation”? An Xbox shill talking about performance or graphics is just ironic, you bought the worst console.

            Xbox fans pretending they care about bluray because it is all they have to hold onto with their weak console and probably haven’t bought a bluray in years like most people. But I guess watching movies is more fun than play xbox games right? They did buy the TV/Sports machine.

            How is PS VUE Doing? I Have Tons of Games To play Don’t Worry about me.

          • Eggman

            Vue is great, best TV streaming service but have barely have time to watch TV with the hundreds of more games on PS4 that need to be played. Let me guess stuck playing Gears, Halo and Forza until the nest Gears, Halo and Forza comes out?

          • Gamertag:WECKLESS

            Nope Just Beat Titanfall 2,Final Fantasy 15 is next, And Then on to Dead Rising 4. Still Play Gears 4 and the Best Racing Game Around Forza Horizon 3 and Recore And A little NBA 2K17

          • Eggman

            So you play multiplatform games on the weakest console where they look and perform the worst. Not very smart.

          • Eggman

            So you play multiplatform games on the weakest console. Not very smart, but it’s okay you fit right in with the rest of the xbox community. Totally oblivious.

            There you go again being a sony fanboy what Are You going to Say when Scorpio Comes out next year My Pc is Better LOL….. Unbelievable By the way My Xbox One S Upscales Game to 4K Just Like PlayStation Pro. Pro can’t even Hit Native 4K 60fps on Games from Last year Wake up And Take the sony blinders off. I’m Done Talking to you Might as Well talk to the wall I would probably get a better Response #GreatnessAwaits

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Think I care what the Xbox fanboys on your sad little Twitter feed have to say about it? That’s if they’re capable of thinking.

            By the way, say Xbone. 🙂

          • Gamertag:WECKLESS

            BTW I Don’t care what you Think or call Xbox One Grow Up…… IF PlayStation 4 has So Many Great Games Why don’t you play them and stop sending me messages to Make yourself seem Important

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Ah yes, 2017, “the year of the Snorpio,” just like 2016, 2015 and 2014 were supposed to be that for the Bone.

            In denial about 4K games on the Pro while Snorpio has no exclusives, a hefty price tag and is a year late. What a shame. Keep trying.

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Hilarious little sub-literate Xbox fanboy can’t handle the truth. Stay on
