Last month was a big month for the Xbox One, as Microsoft reported that April's NPD Group results showed the Xbox One continuing to sit on top in life-to-date software sales. Driving these sales was a game that was not available on any other next-gen console, Titanfall. Popular XBLA title Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition finished fourth.
As usual, Xbox One did not come out on top in console sales, trailing behind Sony's PlayStation 4. However, life-to-date the Xbox One has more cumulative software units sold than any other eighth generation home console.

Playing solo was challenging, but I had all the control. Enter co-op mode. Are you and a friend/loved one looking for that next classic two-player game that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside like that fat plumber and his green-clad brother used to? Great, you should probably look elsewhere then. Project Totem's co-op mode requires a level of communication rarely found in games, which means it could make or break your friendships. You and your partner may realize that you make a great team and work well together — or you may end up never speaking to each other again, with one of you left with a bloody nose from the impact of the other's Xbox controller.
