Three Months After Sony’s announcement of 10 million units sold, Microsoft has now also reached that number with Xbox One but there is a catch. The number represents the number of consoles sold to retailers and not the consumers.
The company has revealed that the Xbox One sales have tripled since the $50 price cut and has now crossed 10 million units sold worldwide.
Yusuf Mehdi stated in a post on Xbox Wire:
“Compared to the previous week, Xbox One sales in the US have more than tripled, which is exciting as more and more friends will be playing together this holiday.”
He further added:
“As we head into the busy holiday season Xbox One led generation 8 console sales in the US for the past two weeks. Shortly, we will have sold in to retailers more than 10 million Xbox One consoles.”
Again, it is to be noted that these numbers give us the amount of units sold to retailers, not consumers.
According to the most recent sales figures revealed by Sony, their PS4 has sold more than 13 million units and the console has been outselling the Xbox One for a while now.
With the release of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Sunset Overdrive bundles, it seems as though the Xbox One is all set to give some solid competition to its rival. PS4’s winning streak could very well be nearing an end.
It will be interesting to see how things turn out at the end of the holiday season.
