So when Sony wins the NPD, "hail the king" but when Microsoft wins, "it's big a deal".
Give credit where credit due!

If Microsoft won by selling 300k units it would be big deal. 13k? That's not a victory. If they can keep this up for a few more months though then we can really start to celebrate.

Winning is winning, especially considering since the PS4 "is soo much better"

1. The PS4 is more powerful
2. So far this year 3 PS4 exclusives (Bloodborne, The Order & MLB) have chartered in the NPD while 0 XO exclusives.
3. The only 'exclusive' XO had so far, this year was Ori and Blind Forest

The fact the XO outsold the PS4 at all for any reason is incredible, either MS pulled some secret sauce from somewhere or the Sony hype train is slowing down.

Either way the PS4 is not dominating as much as people say, if it was then this would have NEVER happened

It's a big deal because Sony can't afford to lose any of these small months, as they will get destroyed holiday 2015.

However, this was a great back & forth battle of a podcast.

Good to hear more people are buying Xbox Ones but anyone who thinks they will catch up with the PS4 should just go ahead and cancel that noise now. The Fall lineup will be huge for them, but Halo 5 is not going to all of a sudden give them a massive lead in sales in the US. I guarantee this lol
