Xbox One sells a million


The Xbox One sold 1 million consoles on it's first day, after launching in 13 markets worldwide, making it the biggest launch in Xbox history.

"Xbox One is now sold out at most retailers," Microsoft said. "We are working to replenish stock as fast as possible to meet the unprecedented demand from our customers.

"We are humbled and grateful for the excitement of Xbox fans around the world," said corporate vice president of marketing and strategy Yusuf Mehdi.

"Seeing thousands of excited fans lined up to get their Xbox One and their love for gaming was truly a special moment for everyone on the Xbox team. We are working hard to create more Xbox One consoles and look forward to fulfilling holiday gift wishes this season."

As a comparison, PS4 sold 1 million consoles in the U.S alone, when it launched on November 15. The PS4 will launch in other territories later this week.

Be interesting to see how many PS4s are sold on Friday as Sony moves into more markets. I believe they sold 1 million in N. America alone, within 24 hours. Seems they could really get their noses in front of Xbox if Microsoft shifted 1 million over 13 territories.

I agree with you Kaysar, I think come this friday Sony could sell 1-2 million consoles on top of the N.America sales.

I'm getting the ps4 through personal preference as i prefer the exclusives and sony as a company overall i'm not going to start fanboyying as to why i have gone for the ps4 and not the xbox one as i will most likely pick a xbox one up by 2015.

ok i see your point Joe, but not many people wanted xbox one. As it proves with just over 1 million sold in 13 countries. I beg to differ though and will await the news next weekend :)

PS4 to sell 3 Million by end of year, Xbox One 2 Million. PS4 10 million by end of 2014, Xbox One 6 Million(admittedly very speculative).

@Anthony or should we call you David? how on earth can xbone sell more, they sold just over 1million on launch in 13 countries and PS4 sold over 1million in the US alone. PS4 now selling 4 times the rate of PS3 and growing. Xbone sold 150,000 in 48hrs in UK, lets see how many PS4 sell in 48hrs i bet it's over 1million, oh and gamestop have 2.3 million people on waiting list for PS4. You trolled the xbone process thread and your trolling the PS4 process thread now your trolling here. WTF!

Right when i look at news on shopto i want to see daily updates on new stock for the xbox 1 and when they are likely to turn up, date of shipping, how many orders are left to fill etc because im getting annoyed by how little information is being given back to customers.

Anthony a piece of advise, log out in the top corner and go get yourself some lessons in spelling and grammar because you're just taking the piss. You shouldn't be allowed on the internet. Infact there's a website here that offers them http://kizschool.com/.
