But this kind of YoY growth won't continue in the coming months, according to NPD analyst Mat Piscatella.
Looks like Phil Spencer managed to reverse the situation of the Xbox brand in US! That´s impressive after all canceled games, closed studios and to make things even worst, 2017 was the worst year for Xbox One exclusive games. I hope Spencer to do justice to all those Xbox One owners that had invested their hard earning money on Xbox One consoles and games. But until then, Congrats Phil and Xbox Team! Xbox One X is awesome!
The US has always been stronghold for Xbox. It has mostly performed well.
A little bit early to say that they reversed the situation. Wait for the next few NPDs to come and then see if they did. It's been a good month for all three which is good to see.
Congrats to all!
Reversed the situation? You think the situation is defined by the results of 1 month? The situation is a summary of all and as far as I know, the Xbox is very far away from its competitors. Also note that this is only US, worldwide the situation is even more critical for Xbox. Imagine your wife is cheating on you month after month for almost 5 years. One month she doesn't cheat on you and you will say: "my wife reversed the situation"?
Last 3 months have been great numbers.
@King_Lothric Xbox has been seeing great results since the X´s release for 3 months straight! After the Mattrick disaster, many people at Microsoft including Bill Gates were supporting the idea of selling the Xbox brand. Nadella took over, choose to continue with the Xbox bussiness, promoted Phil as Head of Xbox, given the positive results (for Microsoft), 5 months ago, Phil got promoted again and now he is one of the 16th more powerful men at Microsoft. Finally, after 3 months after the release of the Xbox One X, Xbox One had the best January ever, according to NPD. Which means; for Microsoft, Phil Spencer has succeed where Matrick FAILED!!!
So coming 3rd in its strongest territory and practically irrelevant everywhere else has 'reversed the situation'? Lmfao.
@Dragonscale When i said "NPD" i though you would understand that i was talking about the US market and NOT the world. The "distance" between the 1st and 3rd was 3%. Xbox One has lost the US market for PS4 all thanks to Mattrick. To see Xbox neck to neck with the PS4 on the world´s biggest gaming market after Don Mattrick, is pretty much a 180 turn in Xbox One favor. Facts.
No matter how you try to spin it, xbone is in last place in the us. Since when has xbone been 'neck and neck' with PS4. Facts my a55 lol.
A spectacular month for gaming.
Yeah the ninswitch isnt even a year old yet so was expected, and the ps4 and xb1 are finally starting to be priced at that sweet spot of 199-249. This holiday when the 8th gen consoles get a firm pricedrop of 199 should be the year where many whom where still on the fence snatch one up. If the switch ever drops to 249 i forsee switches being sold out all over again and esp if its packed with a game.
The Switch wasn’t even out a year ago so how can it be measured?
Exactly, it sold > 0 from last year, so it's technically correct. The best kind of correct
SSSSHHH!. You aren't suppose to question statistics and numbers. If something is left out, it must not be important. These are the facts, folks
One day all these PR BS about the Switch and Xbox will be fully exposed.
What are the BS numbers about the Switch that need to be exposed? Do tell.
IKR How can that be? The lie is staring at Gamingbolt all the while!
