Xbox One worldwide sales surpassed 3 million units during 2013, Microsoft confirmed earlier today.
Corporate VP of marketing, strategy and business at Microsoft, Yusuf Mehdi, shared the following statement regarding the console's stellar sales:
Together, we ushered in a new era of games and entertainment with Xbox One. Over 3 million Xbox One consoles were sold to consumers in 13 countries before the end of 2013. It’s been incredible to see Xbox One selling at a record-setting pace for Xbox, and we were honored to see Xbox One become the fastest-selling console in the U.S. during our launch month in November. Since our launch, demand for Xbox One has been strong, selling out throughout the holidays at most retailers worldwide. We are continuing to work hard to deliver additional consoles to retailers as fast as possible.Sony has not yet provided its sales figures for the 2013 calendar year, but one would suspect the company will be revealing those statistics soon. Oh man, I can't wait to see the internet fanboy wars commence once we have sales numbers to compare.
Here's to hoping 2014 is just as exciting.
