According to a new report from the market research firm NPD Group, December 2015 marked the best month for Xbox One in terms of sales. Unfortunately, it was still not enough to surpass the sales of PlayStation 4 in the US for December, and even for the entire 2015.

“As an indication of the strength of the new consoles, December 2015 marked the best month to date of PS4 unit sales as well as the Xbox One. With growth over 2014 for both these consoles, 2015 was the best year for PS4 and Xbox One hardware unit sales.”

Despite being the best month for Xbox, the company didn’t reveal the exact sales figures for the consoles. They did mention that the hardware sales fell by 6 percent in December 2015, compared to the same month in 2014. This is due to a 71 percent drop in the last generation console sales as well as a 32 percent decline in the portable hardware sales.

As far as the games are concerned, Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops III was the best selling console game for 2015. In December 2015, the overall game sales were flat compared to 2014.
