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.

It’s a good video showcasing the gaming and media features of the Xbox One. I won’t lie though, it seems oddly similar to the Sony PS4 Video Here. But compared to the previous Xbox One Commercial, this is definitely a step in the right direction. Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you guys think.


The Xbox One is slated to be released on Nov 22.
