According to Mike Nichols, Xbox Marketing executive, the Xbox One has started to gain momentum and increased in sales recently. And by increased, we mean a whopping 26 percent since last year.

For those of you who do not recall the last console generation, the Xbox 360 started out by ‘winning’ the console wars, but the PlayStation 3 caught up and later surpassed within the years to come. Perhaps we are seeing the tables turned?

With Xbox’s recent announcement of backwards compatability, an elite controller, and a safe to say strong lineup of games coming out, it will be surprising if the momentum dies down.

Sony has not revealed a comparison for the August 2014 and August 2015 sales for the PlayStation 4. Back in a July presentation, Amy Hood, CFO of Microsoft, has said that Xbox’s strong presence at E3 helped to up the sales.
