Microsoft has just announced they're close to having sold over 10 million Xbox One consoles to retailers since launching nearly a year ago. The information is from internal data gathered by Microsoft.
New blockbuster games and new bundles have helped to push higher Xbox One sales the past few weeks. Xbox One sales have tripled in the U.S. since November 2 when Microsoft took $50 off any bundles sold. This has helped the Xbox One lead the generation 8 console sales in the U.S. for the last two weeks. And has allowed Microsoft to sell nearly 10 million Xbox One consoles to retailers. We should note that selling Xbox Ones to retailers is not quite the same as selling them to consumers, as the former number is higher than the latter.
It's an important milestone for team Xbox, and we're excited to see how the upcoming holidays play out with new games and the aggressive price cutting.
