Microsoft: Over 5 million Xbox One consoles sold since launch
It’s been awhile since Microsoft shared any official stats on how the Xbox One is faring. The last set of solid numbers we had was from mid-January when the Xbox One moved 908,000 units in December. We knew March was going to be a big month with the launch of Titanfall. We now have the latest numbers from the NPD and you’re probably wondering how the Xbox One is doing since launching last November. According to Microsoft, over 5 million Xbox One consoles have been sold to retailers since launch. For comparison, the PlayStation 4 has moved over 7 million units. More numbers after the break.
Here are the highlights for Microsoft from the March NPD numbers:
- 311,000 Xbox One consoles sold in the U.S.
- 110,000 Xbox 360 consoles sold in the U.S.
- 4.1 million games sold across the Xbox One and Xbox 360
- Xbox had a 49 percent share of the total game software market (vs. Nintendo, Sony, etc.)
- Titanfall was the number one selling game in the U.S.
How are you guys liking your Xbox One? We’re still in our honeymoon phase and haven’t regretted buying one yet. Games like Titanfall and Trials Fusion keep us hooked, while we continue to use it as the center of media entertainment center to watch Netflix, Hulu and cable.

Last month ps4 13000 plus Xbox one hasn't even registered but far less than x360 which was two hundred and sixty five.
2 Star Wars, Fast and Furious, Twin Blades, Breakout and a few more that I can't remember. Them are games that I BOUGHT that are gone. So I've lost money on digital games. If you think digital games were going to lower the prices of games. I've got some beach front land in Arizona I'll sell you cheap.
I'm just glad Microsoft listened to the MAJORITY.
You want digital because you have the illusion that games would be cheaper. Have the prices of cds gone down? NO
Have the prices of movies went down? NO
Yet you believe games will. Hmm Ok
Can digital games be resold as often as physical games? NO
are digital games monetary asset's? NO
Are physically games? YES
Just sit back and take a second look dude. I think if you really think about it from all the plus's and negative's you'll realize Microsoft was about to bamboozle us. Thank God the listened to the majority and did the right thing.
They are both great systems... Congrats to Microsoft on the awesome numbers. Keep bringing the content...content is king!
AND NOOOO, I'M NOT INTERESTED IN AN IMPORTED VERSION! Contacted MS Norway about the issues in the new IE11 also, those morons answered that I had to contact Nokia since they made the phones and knew most about the operating system!! First answer was to reset IE11 by pressing the little wheel in the upper right corner... Had to explain again that it was about WINDOWS PHONE and the update to 8.1, not the update for Windows 8.1
No wonder WP doesn't take off when even those who should be devoted and proud about their products, doesn't have a clue about what they are making!
The new boss man really have a problem, having bunches of employees with their heads up their asses!
We all are here because we don't follow trends. We chose windows phone because we personally enjoy our product. So lets all be cool with each other. Share in our experiences, in a positive way. If you love your ps4 say it like so many Xbox one folks did on here in a mature way. Lets game on together, while we enjoy our windows phones.
All my post are done using my icon. Using the new hmm what's it called flow text? Lol anyway still getting the hang of it sorry for the errors.
I would be happy with the stats as they stand.
