Microsoft sold over 3 million Xbox One consoles in 2013


Microsoft has confirmed that over 3 million Xbox One consoles were sold worldwide in 2013 alone. This news comes via an official post on the Xbox Wire, and is quite an accomplishment for a short 5 week period.

When compared to the launch of the Xbox 360, this number is even more impressive, considering it sold about half as well. There’s no official word from Sony yet concerning sales of the PlayStation 4 for comparison, but we do know the system surpassed 2 million in early December.

  1. That’s pretty impressive. There is always a chance that Sony sold more PS4’s and, if so, good for them. But what is really impressive here is that this is a complete refutation of that argument of “Consoles are dead”…
