Microsoft has had a smash hit with sales of the Xbox One according to Microsoft, with one million units shipped on Day One.
Yes indeed, like PS4 before it, "The team is excited to confirm the launch of Xbox One was the biggest launch in Xbox history, with more than one million consoles sold through worldwide in less than 24 hours – surpassing day one Xbox 360 sales and setting a new record for Microsoft," says Microsoft.
“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.”
Good news that the early focus for the early adopters (gamers) is on games. We'll be interested to see how this shifts.
