Xbox One Is Microsoft’s Largest Hardware Launch To Date

XboxOne

Within a day of its release — last Friday, in case you missed it — Microsoft confirmed the Xbox One has matched the PlayStation 4 by selling over a million units across its 13 markets, helping it become the company’s largest hardware launch to date. Looks like the snafu that was the console’s reveal this April could be in the past. Microsoft says they’re working on restocking it now, so if you weren’t able to get one last week, there’s a chance that may be remedied in the near future.

“We are humbled and grateful for the excitement of Xbox fans around the world,” said Xbox’s 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.”

Anyone here have an Xbox One or planning on grabbing one soon?

    Glad both consoles are selling well and setting records- now I don’t have to worry about switching over to PC just yet! I’m curious though- didn’t the PS4 sell 1m units in North America alone? All the reports seem to say Xbox’s 1m figure was spread out over more markets.

    Exactly. PS4 was just launched in North America and Xbox over THIRTEEN markets. The PS4 won’t be out entirely nationwide till February and, given that the Xbox 360 success was primarily chalked up to North American sales, I think this is a really great news for Sony.
