Microsoft’s eighth generation video game console, Xbox One has sold over three million units in 13 countries by the end of 2013, Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of strategy and marketing, Xbox has announced.
“Over 3 million Xbox One consoles were sold to consumers in 13 countries before the end of 2013.
It’s been incredible to see Xbox One selling at a record-setting pace for Xbox, and we were honored to see Xbox One become the fastest-selling console in the U.S. during our launch month in November,” Yusuf Mehdi wrote on the blog.
He adds, “Since our launch, demand for Xbox One has been strong, selling out throughout the holidays at most retailers worldwide. We are continuing to work hard to deliver additional consoles to retailers as fast as possible.”
“We also love that you are seeing the promise of an all-in-one entertainment system. Millions of hours of live TV have been watched and millions of hours of app entertainment have been enjoyed.
We are proud to have the most passionate, engaged, and simply the best fans in the world. It was fun to share the holidays with so many of you.
We’re excited for the year ahead and will be working hard to bring Xbox One to more fans and more markets around the globe,” said Mehdi.
The last time (December 3) Sony announced they had sold 2.1 million PlayStation 4 consoles, we are yet to hear PS4’s end of the year figures.
Xbox One launched in 13 markets on November 22, 2013. It will release in Japan and the remaining European markets in 2014.
