Xbox One Manages “More than Double” Sales in June, Should Sony be Worried?

By   /   Jul 17, 2014

Today Microsoft announced that in June, the sales of its Xbox One got “more than doubled” the the sale figures in May.

The announcement comes via Xbox Wire, a day ahead of this month’s NPD report for video games. And since Microsoft didn’t release any concrete sales figures, it is impossible to determine the actual units sold. Moreover, the company has also announced solid growth in Xbox 360 sales.

These improved sales figures can be related to Kinect-less Xbox One SKU which was released in June for a $100 cheaper than the Kinect-bundled SKU, equaling the price point for both Xbox One and Playstation 4.

Since the new Xbox One offering launched on June 9th, we’ve seen sales of Xbox One more than double in the US, compared to sales in May, and solid growth in Xbox 360 sales.

Microsoft has also stated that the provided information is based on internal data for the calendar month and sold through numbers.

Over the past months, Playstation 4 has managed to outsell Xbox One consecutively, thanks to its lower price point and availability in more countries. Nonetheless, it is good to see that Xbox One is catching up.

Ever since its somewhat failed E3 last year, Microsoft has started paying heed to fans’ demands. The company announced major AAA titles at this year’s E3, its plans to dominate the Japanese market (Where Playstation 4 is already failing), and a price drop.

I’m pretty sure that Playstation 4 will certainly outsell Xbox One in a couple of months, but considering Microsoft’s revised policies, should Sony be afraid of Microsoft in the long run?

Make sure to check back tomorrow for a detailed NPD report which will clear things up.

The company has also announced deals and promotions throughout the holiday season with more information coming soon!
