With the NPD results revealing that the Xbox One outsold the PlayStation 4 during the month of November 2014 in the US and UK, many people took to social media to congratulate Xbox boss, Phil Spencer. While responding to tweets, Spencer questioned past claims about the death of console gaming, stating that console are doing just fine. 

Thanks for the congrats. 18 months ago ??s were “death of console?”, seems like consoles are fine, great games and sales for our industry.

Indeed competition is healthy for the industry. Despite software declines noted in 2014, industry sales are up 2% compared to last year, with hardware bundles a major factor in terms of hardware sales. 

Do you agree with Spencer?
