According to Aaron Greenberg tweet, Xbox One was the best selling console in the month of April in the US:
It’s interesting to see Xbox One come on top during the so called “Pre-season” but not too surprising considering the deals the console had during the month. Neither of the consoles had an AAA exclusive game to drive the sales, in fact third parties ruled the charts. In case Aaron Greenberg’s tweet wasn’t enough, here’s another tweet confirming the win:
The official PR statement of Microsoft to GamesBeat:
As the best-selling console in the U.S. in April, fans set record April sales and engagement for Xbox One last month, Xbox One console sales in the U.S. increased 63 percent in April 2015 compared to April 2014 and Xbox Live comparisons showed the number of active global users [Xbox One and Xbox 360] grew 24 percent. We are grateful to our fans for their passion and support and are looking forward to sharing more on the best game lineup in Xbox history at E3.
Here’s instead the Sony PR statement, always to GamesBeat:
We would like to thank fans around the world for their continued support of the PS4. According to NPD, PlayStation continues to lead software sales for April 2015 and PS4 remains the cumulative sales leader in the US. We are looking forward to an amazing E3.
Here’s the Top 10 software sold:
1.) Mortal Kombat X (PS4, Xbox One)
2.) Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, Xbox One, PC, 360, PS3)
3.) Battlefield: Hardline (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3, PC)
4.) MLB 15: The Show (PS4, PS3)
5.) Minecraft (360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4)
6.) NBA 2K15 (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3, PC)

8.) Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3)
9.) Super Smash Bros. (3DS, Wii U)
10.) Borderlands: The Handsome Collection (PS4, Xbox One)
Of course the US isn’t the world so this news doesn’t get us the whole picture, but it is indeed the strongest territory for the Xbox One, considering how badly it is doing in Europe.
