The Co-op Podcast 95: Destiny Sells More on Xbox One, But Why?

Gary Swaby at The Koalition writes: Another week, another podcast.

I would say that this had to be the case because of the promotion Microsoft ran where you get a free game (Destiny if you choose) with an Xbox One. The problem is that it's not entirety true because the PS4 still outsold the Xbox One in Sept. Still if this was the case, why didn't the PS4 version of Destiny outsell the XB1 version?

Might be because of the Halo connection.
