Though The NPD Group hasn’t released its full report on hardware and software sales for games in the United States for December, Microsoft head of Xbox games marketing Aaron Greenberg said on Twitter that the Xbox One had outsold the PS4.
Greenberg noted in his first tweet that the Xbox One had seen its highest December console share ever. He later followed up to a tweet questioning whether the Switch or PS4 came out on top by noting that the Xbox One had sold more than the PS4 in December as per NPD data. However, he then said that the Nintendo Switch had the most overall units. This seems to indicate that the Nintendo Switch sold the most followed by Xbox One and PS4.
Sony was no slouch during the Holiday 2017 season, selling over 5.9 million units. It seems that the Xbox One X helped propel Microsoft upwards while Nintendo continues its monumental run worldwide. Stay tuned for more information from The NPD Group regardless.

Was trying to just thank folks for supporting us and the incredible success following the launch of Xbox One X. But yes Xbox outsold PS4 in December for Gen 8 consoles according to NPD data, while Nintendo also had a great month as Switch had most overall units.
