Xbox One has sold over 2 million units in 18 days

Microsoft has announced that Xbox One has sold over 2 million consoles worldwide in just 18 days. That’s averaging 111,111 units sold per day, and since its launch on November 22, users have spent over 83 million hours in games, TV, and apps on Xbox One. As well as that, over 39 million Xbox One achievements have been unlocked and 595 million total Gamerscore achieved.

“We continue to be humbled and overwhelmed by the positive response from our fans. We are thrilled to see sales of Xbox One on a record-setting pace, with over 2 million Xbox One consoles in homes around the world. Demand is exceeding supply in our 13 launch markets and Xbox One is sold out at most retailers. We’re also particularly excited to see consumers engaging in a wide range of games and entertainment experiences on the platform, with more than 1 million paid transactions on Xbox Live to date,” said Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of strategy and marketing, Xbox.

The huge demand for the console has led to stock flying out as soon as it arrives, with John Love, director of video games at Amazon, stating, “At peak demand, customers were ordering the Xbox One console at over 1000 units per minute on Amazon.com.”

Microsoft says that the Xbox team is continuing to work hard to meet consumer demand, delivering consoles to retailers as fast as possible this holiday season.

As of December 1, PlayStation 4 had sold 2.1 million units after launching November 15 in North America and November 29 in Europe
