Head of Xbox Games Marketing, Aaron Greenberg, has revealed on Twitter that Xbox One outsold PlayStation 4 in the US in December. However, it was Switch that moved the most units during the month.

Citing NPD Group, whose full report for December isn’t out yet, Greenberg tweeted:

A few days ago, Sony announced that PS4 sales have surpassed 73.6 million worldwide. However, the company sold 5.9 million units during the 2017 holiday season, which was down 5 percent from the same time last year when 6.2 million consoles were sold.

An increase in Xbox One sales doesn’t come as a surprise as Microsoft recently introduced the Xbox One X. On the software front, PS4 games have seen an increase in sales, with 5.5 million copies sold during the holiday.
