Xbox One Sells More Than 1 Million Consoles Worldwide In Less Then 24 Hours

Xbox One Launch Event

Microsoft has announced that the Xbox One, which launched today in 13 markets around the world, has officially sold more then 1 Million consoles, thus surpassing the day one sales of the Xbox 360, and setting a new record for Microsoft.

Microsoft has stated that the Xbox One is sold out at most retailers and that they are working on replenishing stock as quickly as possible.

“We are humbled and grateful for the excitement of Xbox fans around the world,” said Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Marketing and Strategy, Xbox. “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.”

So, both the PS4 and Xbox One are off to a fantastic start in this new console generation. Here is hoping that both can continue to get consoles out to fans and keep up with demand around the world. Microsoft has launched in 13 Markets around the world today, ranging from New Zealand all the way through North America and into Europe in the UK and Germany. Sony has launched in North America already, and launches in Europe next week. As this holiday season starts to heat up, I just hope that both these console juggernauts can keep up with, what is quite simply, phenomenal demand from consumers.

First Microsoft Xbox One Ad revealed, featuring…….Football?

So here we have it folks, our very first North American TV ad for the Xbox One. It shows American Football, Skype, and Kinect, and no gameplay footage. In fact it doesn’t even mention that can even PLAY games. I worry about the kind of message that Microsoft is sending by airing these on TV. I Understand that Football is huge in the U.S.A, but as a gamer, this doesn’t make me want to buy an Xbox One, not even in the slightest. What do you guys think?

Xbox One80? Microsoft reveals the Xbox One will be usable without Kinect.

It would appear that Microsoft has yet again decided to pull another 180, this time in regards to the Kinect sensor.

Previously at E3, we were told that the Xbox One would not function without the Kinect sensor connected to the console. Well last night on IGN, Marc Whitten, Chief Xbox One Platform Architect was asked “How “off” can Kinect be when the system is in use?” and to this he replied ” You have the ability to completely turn the sensor off in your settings. When in this mode, the sensor is not collecting any information. Any functionality that relies on voice, video, gesture or more won’t work. We still support using it for IR blasting in this mode. You can turn the sensor back on at any time through settings, and if you enter into a required Kinect experience (like Kinect Sports Rivals for instance), you’ll get a message asking if you want to turn the sensor back on in order to continue.”

So the Kinect is no longer mandatory, but they are still selling every console with one. What do you guys think of this new turn of events?

You can see the whole AMA (Ask me anything) over at IGN.
