Xbox One Sales Break The 2 Million Mark

Posted on Wednesday, December 11 @ 07:43:45 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Microsoft has just announced that Xbox One has surpassed the 2 million mark in global sales. The console launched in a total of 13 different markets on November 22nd.

Yusuf Mehdi, Xbox Corporate VP of Strategy and Marketing, provided the following statement:

We continue to be humbled and overwhelmed by the positive response from our fans. We are thrilled to see sales of Xbox One on a record-setting pace, with over 2 million Xbox One consoles in homes around the world.

Demand is exceeding supply in our 13 launch markets and Xbox One is sold out at most retailers. We're also particularly excited to see consumers engaging in a wide range of games and entertainment experiences on the platform, with more than 1 million paid transactions on Xbox Live to date.

Sony announced last week that PlayStation 4 sales had reached 2.1 million. Granted, it had a one week start in North America, but didn't launch in European territories until November 29th, one week after Xbox One came to the region.

It will be interesting to see how these two consoles compare sales-wise long term. Do you think Sony will be able to maintain a healthy lead? Comment below and let us know.
