Microsoft has announced that, over the course of 18 days since its launch, the Xbox One has sold more than two million consoles. Microsoft is calling it “a record-setting pace for Xbox.”
The news comes by way of the official Xbox Wire. It’s there that they drop some interesting sales rate statistics for the new hardware. The console is selling roughly 111,111 units each day, and it hit 1,000 units ordered per minute on Amazon during its peak.
Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate VP of Strategy and Marketing for Xbox, offered this:
“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…”
The asterix includes both digital games and video purchases, for what it’s worth.
The PlayStation 4 crossed the 2.1 million sold mark in roughly 16 days, for the sake of inevitable comparison. Whatever the case may be, both systems are off to a strong start that will hopefully translate into lifelong success and an even better stance for the console gaming industry.
