NPD: Xbox One and Xbox 360 were the top selling consoles for each generation in the US in December. 908k (Xbox One) and 643k (Xbox 360)

Source: Major Nelson on Twitter
So 908,000 for the Xbox One and 643,000 for the Xbox 360. Not bad.

Also confirmed by another Microsoft worker's twitter, Aaron Greenberg.

#NPD reports Xbox One #1 selling console in Dec, 360 sold well too. Big thanks to our fans for all the support!

Xbox one couldn't break 1 million even with all of that stock?

Damn. Over 600k for 360. That seems crazy.

Isn't 900k low for a December with plenty of stock around? What were other consoles first December NPDs like?

Not surprising 360 beat PS3.
I expect XBO to take the month based on supply issues on Sony's side.

It's not like this comment of yours is illuminating however - the tweet specifically says NPD, so it's North America, and in any event, the vast, vast, vast majority of XBO's sales have come from the USA, where demand has been met at last with excess supply. Everywhere else in the world has become a dry dock.

Meanwhile, as hard as Sony tried, they shipped in more than 50 countries (vs. 13, in which only UK and US was of concern to MS), of which demand is high in many of them, and even though they diverted stock to the USA, every report we've had suggested they were unable to meet demand. Amazon been taking pre-orders for January shipments. I mean, it's crazy.

Neither is this comment illuminating - Microsoft specifically did not ship in more than 13 countries because they knew they did not have the supply to. Sony shipped in more countries because they thought they could do it, and the demand was there. Most countries could give a shit about XBO. PS4 is a global brand, Xbox is increasingly a US-only brand. Even UK is no longer a frontier for Microsoft.

900k with all that stigma at 500$ is impressive. If they can ever close the price gap they might do alright.

I thought it'd be more fun to have people actually come into the thread and see the numbers, instead of spoiling it in the title. :P Numbers are front and center, top of the post.

Does that effectively confirm 1.2 mil sold outside the US up through the end of 2013? (If I'm reading it right)

If they were the top selling, I feel bad for the PS4.

Since they exclude the handhelds, I wonder where the 3DS ends up.

Xbone numbers seem low to me.

With the plentiful stock it should have been better than simply steady with November.

Early adopters would have bought it even at $599. Price will affect sales outside the holidays when people are more conservative with their moneys.

I didn't doubt that this would happen. I really don't think all of Microsoft PR problems early in the year had as big of an effect on the XB1's sales as many on GAF thought they would.

That's a lot for a $500 machine. Impressive and slightly baffling showing for 360, can't believe there were 643,000 people interested in a system 8 years down the road.

No, not when the prior month was launch. In fact, no console has ever hit a million in December after launching that November.

Unsure where it says that. All they've said is '360 did well'

The order (console) will be

One
PS4
360
PS3
OUYA
The Nuon
Wii U

Well done, but they basically won December in North America because Sony couldn't ship more, not because there was more demand for Xbone, so this probably won't be a lasting victory.
