Throughout the month of January, sales of consoles have been great, but Nintendo's Switch and Sony's PlayStation 4 has been trading blows - keep in mind that the Nintendo Switch is still quite young, and the PlayStation 4 will soon pave the way for the PlayStation 5.

Meanwhile, we have Microsoft's Xbox One, which admittedly faltered in terms of console sales. Hardware sales for the console have declined year over year by 19 percent. That doesn't mean that Microsoft fell too far behind. During the three months ending December 31, the console's games revenue rose to $4.3 billion, which is eight percent higher compared to the game revenue of the previous year. Furthermore, executives claimed that there were 64 million active Xbox Live users for the month of December. In December 2017, that number was 59 million users.

So yeah, here's to Microsoft's success with the available titles on the Xbox One. Hopefully, with their obtainment of various studios, they will be able to sell unique, exclusive experiences only available on the next Xbox generation console and PC.
