According to the NPDs, the Xbox One outsold the PS4 and Wii U during the month of April. Microsoft was happy to spread the news of its first victory over Sony since last December. "As the best-selling console in the U.S. in April, fans set record April sales and engagement for Xbox One last month," declared Xbox Marketing chief Mike Nichols.
Console software spending increased 20% in the month of April. The PlayStation brand as a whole lead in game sales, perhaps owing to the larger cumulative user base in this current generation, as well as its presence in the handheld gaming sector.
