According to the number crunchers at NPD, as reported by Gamesbeat, it’s the first time Xbox One has outsold the PS4 this year.

“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 the site.

It was a quiet month for new software release, but Warner’s Mortal Kombat X proved strong, outselling the likes of Battlefield Hardline and GTA 5.

March’s big PlayStation 4 release, Bloodborne, did not hang around in the top ten this month.
