Microsoft has today announced that Xbox One Sales have crossed the 2 million units mark since its launch on November 22, 2013.
In the past 18 days, around 111,111 units have been sold per day, a feat which the company described as “record-setting.”
“Demand is exceeding supply in our 13 launch markets and Xbox One is sold out at most retailers,” said Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi.
The figures prove that Microsoft is keeping in pace with the PlayStation 4, despite of what the web has to say otherwise. Sony was first to announce themselves crossing over 2.1 million sales. Microsoft though failed to contest that figure at that time, releasing gameplay statistics instead that depicted how many hours Xbox One players have pulled in so far.
It’s good knowing that both companies are doing great, since it’s the gamers in the end that get the larger portion of the pie.
It though has to be taken into consideration that Sony initially launched the PlayStation 4 in only the US and Canada. Microsoft on the other release their console in 13 territories worldwide.
Sony’s most recent figure of selling more than 2.1 million consoles includes only two days of availability across Europe and Australia. It’s safe to say that Sony still has a higher lead in the next-gen war.
