It is no secret that Sony’s PS4 console has generally outsold the Xbox One ever since they both came out back in 2013. In fact the PS4 has been in the lead the whole time, even though some months have seen the Xbox One outsell the PlayStation 4 in the United States. And now, the latest figures from The NPD Group show that the PlayStation 4 has outsold not just the Xbox One, but also the relatively new Nintendo Switch in the United States last month. This is surprising since the Switch is so new still. Both Microsoft and Sony have released several versions of these consoles. Sony added the PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 4 Slim to their lineup, while Microsoft launched the Xbox One S and will release the Xbox One X very soon.

Yesterday I read that More Blockbuster stores are closing. Blockbuster is falling – with a losing 2010 and not a very great first half of 2011. Yet Netflix and Redbox seem to be doing pretty well. I don’t get it – Doesn’t Blockbuster see the writings on the wall? More important, why are they not on a platforms that work, like Roku or Boxee? I remember when Blockbuster gobbled up local retailer Doorstep Video (they actually delivered movies like pizza), then Video Station. A little company from Texas really put the screws to local video retailers. If you wanted a video, pull that Blockbuster card out of your back pocket. But the movie environment changed.
