According to an earlier report, Microsoft had revealed that sales of the Xbox One had doubled following the price cut from $499 to $399 which saw the exclusion of the Kinect. However how does it fare against the Sony PlayStation 4? Previously the PlayStation 4 was leading in terms of sales, but with the price cut and the reported increase in interest, has the Xbox One finally caught up?
Unfortunately that answer would be no. This is according to the NPD Group who have recently released their monthly report for physical sales in the US market for the month of June. Based on their latest figures, it would seem to suggest that despite increased interest in the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4 still managed to earn the title of the top-selling console in the US for that month.

Heads up folks, it looks like Facebook has released a new app called Mentions, but there is a chance that you won’t be able to use it. Why is that? Well apparently the app is targeted at celebrities, or famous individuals who have verified Facebook accounts, i.e. official celebrity-owned Facebook pages and so on.
Why would anyone need such an app? Well some of the features of the app includes the ability to comb through a Twitter-like stream of posts that reference them or are about trending topics that could be of interest to them, which they can then use to repost on their Facebook accounts as a way of keeping their fans engaged.
