Xbox One was the best selling console in the U.S for December and to celebrate Microsoft is keeping the price at $349.99.
The console has now been the top seller in the U.S for two consecutive months, with its weekly average sales during these months outpacing the Xbox 360 by 50% at the same point in its lifecycle.
Here are a few other facts supplied by Microsoft, drawing on NPD and internal data:
- In 2014, users logged nearly 8 billion hours globally in apps across Xbox 360 and Xbox One, a 50 % increase from time spent in 2013.
- Xbox One also sold more games throughout November and December in the US than any other current-generation platform.
- From November 24 to January 3, fans spent more time playing on Xbox than they ever have before, at any point in the history of Xbox.
- In the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta alone, 18 million games have been played to date.
