Xbox One scores a victory against the PS4 in North America in April

The Xbox One managed to score a victory against the PS4 in April.

Although sales figures haven’t been released, the NPD group has confirmed that the Xbox One was April’s biggest-selling console in North America.

It was actually something of a record-setting month for Microsoft, who sold 63% more Xbox One consoles compared to April 2014.

“As the best-selling console in the US in April, fans set record April sales and engagement for Xbox One last month,” Xbox marketing boss Mike Nichols told GamesBeat.

“Xbox One console sales in the US increased 63% 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%.”

It wasn’t all bad for Sony, however. PlayStation software sales (PS4, PS3 and Vita) led the way in April, and the PS4 is still leading the Xbox One in overall sales.

Both companies signed off with a nod to their upcoming E3 gaming expo offerings.

Microsoft recently announced plans to kick off a day of E3 conferences with “the greatest games line-up in Xbox history”.

Sony, meanwhile, has been tipped to show off its first Project Morpheus games from its own first-party studios.
