Saw something on Twitter saying Xbox One outsold the PS4 by more than 114,000 units for the month. No Man's Sky sales around 500k retail. Not sure if the numbers are accurate.

Not many surprises for me. X1S likely gave a big boost to X1 sales. Very curious if we see similar results with the PS4S next month or if PS4's boost in sales will be delayed and/or spread out because of the PS4P.
