According to NPD analyst Mat Piscatella, the combined sales for the PS4 and Xbox One in the US have surpassed the consolidated sales for PlayStation 2 and Xbox by 4 percent to become the fastest-selling console generation in gaming history.

It's possible that the success of the PS4 and Xbox One despite the introduction of the Switch comes from the capabilities of both platforms other than gaming. Each of these games is an Xbox Live Arcade title developed by Microsoft Studios. Based on the images we've seen so far, everything seems to match up.

Previously, the Xbox One X was listed for a on the official Xbox website. The company happened to launch the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller the same day Halo 5: Guardians was released, which was on October 27, 2017.

Another leaked photo, this time coming from Reddit user EDDS86, shows the latest Microsoft Xbox Elite wireless controller in its full appearance. Some critics even suggested not to test the Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller because it would be hard to go back to using your regular controller.

If Microsoft manages to put a reasonable price tag on the second generation Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller, say anywhere between $70-$90, most gamers around the world would leave their old controller behind and go ahead and buy it. And if the company targeted all gamers instead specific group of highly competitive gamers, it would make everyone happy.

Mat Piscatella, the analyst at NPD Group, revealed the general balance of the video game industry in the United States in 2017, where it was reported that Switch was the most sold console in that country during December, but, regarding the annual performance, PS4 took the first place and it was the best-selling console in the country the year that just ended.
