View author's profile

The Xbox One has sold through one million units across 13 markets in just 24 hours, Microsoft has revealed.

The figure represents a new record for a Microsoft console, outstripping the day one performance of both the original Xbox and the Xbox 360.

"We are humbled and grateful for the excitement of Xbox fans around the world," said Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Marketing and Strategy, Xbox. 

"Seeing thousands of excited fans lined up to get their Xbox One and their love for gaming was truly a special moment for everyone on the Xbox team. 

“We are working hard to create more Xbox One consoles and look forward to fulfilling holiday gift wishes this season."

In addition to this, Microsoft has also released a few stats from the Xbox One launch line-up of games.

In the last 24 hours, over 60 million zombies have been killed in Dead Rising 3, over 3.6 million miles have been driven in Forza Motorsport 5, over 7.1 million combos were put together in Killer Instinct, and over 8.5 million enemies have been defeated in Ryse: Son of Rome.

Although... selling 1 million units in 13 areas isn't impressive considering the ps4 launched in just America and got 1 million there...

I think Xbox is struggling 0.o

It would be interesting to find out the sales comparison between xbox one & ps4.

1million consoles in 24 hrs is pretty damn impressive. hopefully the consoles with the disk drive problems are fixed for all those affected.

I had gut feeling it would sell well despite all the problems with marketing...congrats to Microsoft...I'll have to wait until after Christmas to get mine...

I agree with #4...I'd like to see a comparison of sales in the first 24 hours between the XB1 and PS4 as well as the Wii U...

Yet mine still sits in a warehouse somewhere. Thanks FutureShop. I guess pre-ordering 4 1/2 months in advance means nothing. Either way, since it's a pre-order, it probably still counts towards the 1million "sold".

No surprises. Regardless of controversy Xbox is a mega brand that was always gonna enjoy a healthy launch. It's the upcoming year when things could get interesting.

Ps4 had a million in just usa because thats the only place it shipped to making it easier to get. Microsoft didnt ship 1million to usa only on day one. If they would have trust me they would have all been gone.

IMO it's the games that determine the console sales. The overall winner of this 'console war' will be the one with the best software.

People also seem to be forgetting that the Xbox One has 100 dollar higher price point. So for every 5 PS4's sold, it only takes 4 Xbox One's to make the same amount.

I am waiting to see which one I buy out of One or PS4, but if I want to get a PS4 now in Australia, I have to wait until March, but I can get a One now - and there were extra shipments of PS4 sent when they realised preorders here were two PS4s for every One.

MS think this is good? It proves they have a big enough fan base that people will buy anything they make, sure, but imagine what they might have sold had they built the PS4 (as the new xbox) and Sony had made a One (as the new PS). They should be looking at it as a salvaged error rather than a giant success.

It's not the 90's anymore, people talk about the PS4 as if Sony have built a gaming only machine. They have apps, they have a camera, like Microsoft they are trying to create a multi purpose box, unlike Microsoft they have failed. Just accept the fact you are in a minority now (in that you don't do anything other than play games on a console)

I use netflix, twitch, the IGN, Gametrailers and Gamespot apps, Sky (UK), BBC Iplayer, 4OD, Youtube, Last FM, as well as play all my AVI files and media files through my 360. If you want to just play games then do so, but don't complain when they add more features. The only reason the 360 is so successful is because it addapted and was being bought by demographics that never owned a console before. (Even my 48 year old parents have one!)

If you like gaming then be thankful to see Microsoft trying new technologies because if they just constantly made a machine that does nothing more than gaming they would eventually fail, people would simply ask 'why buy an xbox when i can use a PC'.

Thats what makes a games console so good these days, it plays the bet games, shows the best movies, lets you listen to the newest music, browse the web, skype your friends and family, and much more. All in one easy to use box on your big TV in the living room. It's not only the future but the present and it simply isn't going to change.

@13 Commenting just to complain about it... Sure you don't love your own words?

I'm sure that this is a boon for MS but it'll be a while before we see world wide figures to compare with both consoles, not that non fanboys will care about it though.

Oh and just for @13 I'll be waiting for a while to let the teething issues with next gen get sorted before i'll purchase either console.

I don't understand. Xbox news doesn't appear on PS trophies, correct? I assume not since I don't see PS4 news here.

So does this mean the PS fans are coming to an Xbox site, clicking on news articles, and downvoting and badmouthing the Xbox? That seems odd, since that's going very far out of their way to troll. I could see that on a shared site like IGN that has all the news for all the consoles in one place, but to troll here seems like too much effort.

@28 Could be. I'm a member of both because I have both systems that I play extensively and the same thing happens when MS is mentioned and people start downvoting folks that talk negatively about the 360/XB1.

To be honest, I hope that those downvotings are from people of the same camp. Console warring is so stupid and people who downplay other platforms are ignorant. Play what you like whether it's XB1 or PS4. Both are great and both will be successful. The competition between the 2 will be more close than anything. Just as how the last gen did when the PS3 caught up. Competition is good for the community.

@2 - where did you get he 5% figure? I see you said PROBABLY. If the problems people are having his because they stood the into. It's side or because they're shutting the hint off during an update the. It's nothing Microsoft can control. Don't make up stuff to make it look like a failure. Why don't you go find something to do?

@33 I didn't say it was but 1 mill units for PS4 is 400 million dollars, 1 million for Xbox is 500 million dollars. We don't know exactly how much these units cost exactly to make, but in terms of pure gross, if PS4 sold 100 mill units, it would only take Xbox 80 mill to reach the same gross amount.

I agree with @9. I've bought an X1 because I like the look of the exclusives coming to the platform. If Sony start to a announce some of their own exclusive games that catch my eye I'd look to maybe pick a PS4 up further down the line. As it stands, to me at least, Xbox1 has most games that appeal to me right now. That doesn't mean I don't think Sony have a good console. It's just not for me right now.

With the BS!!! Microsoft tried to pull with DRM in the beginning No-Way in hell they deserve the success of selling a 1/4 of the units now sold.
Shows me only what a illogical mindless fan-base will do!

Really WTF? Oh how people choose to forget or not be informed in the first place!

MS will have my money... eventually. A combination of letting them sort out any early teething problems (and wishful thinking, a potential future price cut), still having a mound of 360 games to play through, and finally, being a bit skint lol! I really cannot wait until I have an Xbox One though, I neeeed Killer Instinct Ultra Edition in my life!

@3: that's exactly what I was thinking too. I changed my mind about 40 times in the last couple of months and finally bought a PS4, since it seems the most powerful console ATM. And since I never use any other apps or features on my console, I use them purely for gaming, PS4 seemed more interesting (and it was cheaper).

Nevertheless, I will certainly get an Xbox One in the next couple of years, I always had all the consoles (Xbox 360 being my absolute favourite, btw).

Also, just to compare, I've just checked and there are Xbox Ones available in a couple of Best Buy and Future Shop stores right now in my area (Montréal). PS4s were all sold out in 1 hour last Friday.

Promising sales for both consoles, personally I think here is space in the market for 2 consoles and hope both do well......nothing better than competition to improve content.

I admit that talk of these being the most successful launches is surprising though. Hardly anyone on my list has played the 1 yet, no midnight hysteria or queueing down the road....

Electronic equipment is always oging to have a certain level of failure rate. They are built with components that allow for predetermined level of failures. Obviously selling 1 million in 24 hours on launch means 0.1% (for example) is still 1,000 failures on day one.

"The figure represents a new record for a Microsoft console, outstripping the day one performance of both the original Xbox and the Xbox 360."

.... that would be because with the release of the 360, stores were not shipped enough copies of the console to sell very many on release day. Seems like they actually thought ahead this time. At the time of that release, my mom worked at Fred Meyer and said they only had 100 consoles sent to their store to sell for the release. It was the same elsewhere in town with the other stores. LoL

If PS4 will sell e.g. 50% more than Xbox One then I might choose 4 for the simple fact that it will probably have better games when there's more gaming audience. Since currently I don't have any huge factor for either console (on the fence).

What I mean is sony only had to worry about shipping all there inventory to usa, microsoft shipped to 13 different countries, now what im say is microsoft only had a set amount of consoles for launch, so did ps4, but ps4 sold more in usa because thats the only place it shipped to on launch. Get what im saying?

@57 I agree with you thanks for the laugh.

@63 stop trolling your shit on here nobody cares; the support team should remove this person from being able to post that bullshit on here.

Back on topic, I'm waiting in hopes of a price drop and for any other bugs to be ironed out before I purchase a new console. I'm still enjoying games on my 360.

Loving my Xbox One. I knew it'd be awesome and have yet to be disappointed. Just wish I could allow myself to buy more One titles. I'm already almost done with Dead Rising 3 and only have Ghosts to also play. Battlefield 4 and AC IV: Black Flag look SO good. Eh, I can wait, though.

This is actually terrible news =/ PS4 sold over a million in the USA alone, where as the Xbox One sold just over a million in 13 different countries, holy crap, MS is failing this gen already =/

Sony's sales will easily double or possibly nearly triple MS's total launch sales this time next week when it releases PS4 in 28 more countries.

Don't have it, or the PS4, and don't plan on getting either for a few years. Too friggin' expensive.

@ oversig
fanboy, no i dont think so. i have an xbox360 and a ps3 and will prob get an xb1 not through any loyalty of ms but becouse the community is better on xblive than on ps. ms put their head in the lions mouth over drm etc and when the lion bit instead of sticking with it after their arguments for it didnt hold water then they put their hands up and withdrew it.
if a company, individual for that matter,does wrong but admits their wrong and rectifies it then i believe they deserve a second chance. that is fair play logic and common sense.
you will grow up to be a bitter lonely old man with opinions like yours. more to bbe pitied than scolded.
i dont doubt sony had some form of drm planned but quietly withdrew it after the backlash ms recieved, like they removed pseye to make the console cheaper than xb1.

@81 et all
both consoles have done excedinglly well selling ALL of their stock. numbers sold means nothing at this stage as who knows what the figures would have been if there were unlimited stocks of both. it just means sony concentrated their stock in one country but ms spread theirs around

God I love all these "failure" comments. They sold all of their available stock and literally couldn't have done any better with the amount of units that had. The bulk of you posting negative crap on here are either too young to have been through any other console launch (in which case your comment isnt worth reading) or you're an idiot and flat out don't remember how these things go. Want to tell me which console did better than the other or "failed"? Come back in a year or two when stores are able to keep both systems on the shelf and there's some actual data to look at.

Xbox One and PS4 will be fly off faster for sold. Wii U will be soon and should be in 2014 as lots epic games on that system in 2014. So 3DS already fly off faster sold moment.

We all knew Wii U and PS Vita is slowly but we all now Wii U will be better sold than PS Vita by next year. :)

Yes PS4 sold more than Xbox One moment but we never know in future when sales change and how much higher. PS4 is moment top sold. :)

I think the true indication on sales V's Sony will come after the 29th of November when PS4 is released outside of North America, i'm from Australia and the PS4 is completely sold out here, the earliest you can get a PS4 now is around February/ March 2014, the Xbox One however is still available to buy at store's 3 days after release...did MS just manufacture more consoles? or is the Pendulum swinging in Sony's favour, time will tell i guess.
I pre ordered a PS4 over Xbox One BTW for many reasons, and no i'm not a fanboy.

News? Yes. Bad news? To you and me, no. Regardless of your purchase decision, you'll end up with a nice piece of kit that will keep you entertained for hours, weeks, months and I suppose years.

Neither Sony or Microsoft will let software dry up and all efforts will be made to milk you of your hard-earned cash each month with new content, shiny games and DLC so really, even though it seems Sony have the lead at the moment, don't be disheartened - there's really no point about stressing over daft stuff you ultimately have little control over (unless you can personally buy dozens of consoles for yourself and your colleagues).

I don't care if Sony or even Nintendo end up out-manouvering it for a period of time. I am confident in the brand, LIVE and the gamers who own them to come through.

"@3 Yeah they're really struggling, they smashed all previous records and made over half a billion in less than a day. How are they gonna feed their kids now?... Idiot! "

you should probably learn to count first before you call someone an idiot. 1 million is no where near half a billion. and although they smashed their own previous records the fact sony still has only released in north america technically means they sold more and will sell more when the release in other countries. at least sony waited to release so they could make everyones pre orders. A LOT of pre orders were cancelled because microsoft couldn't supply enough to certain places. I know my gamestop were calling out to people saying they were not getting theirs on release day. i am glad i made the switch to playstation, i can't stand microsofts bullshit anymore.

@97 I think he was probably referencing the cost of each of the million units sold (£500)making Microsoft approx. £500,000,000 in Revenue. However this doesn't mean they are rich, as revenue and profit are very different things. It is actually fairly common for Console makers to have a loss on each unit sold, meaning the more they sell, the worse off they become (which is probably why stock was somewhat limited). They normally make this back with game sales, but as we don't know the costs of production for the Xbox One it's hard to calculate their profit levels.
I hope this helped to clear things up for you :)

Let's see PS4 launched in 1 market & sold 1 million units & costs $400

Xbox One launched in 13 different markets & sold 1 million units at $500
I'd give the edge to Microsoft for being $100 more & spreading it's units to
more countries than just 1

Guys it doesn't matter which system sells more, so long as they both do well. We are all together in this, we have preferred consoles yes but we as gamers need the entire business to succeed. Both systems have had brilliant launches and both systems should make a profit which means games consoles live on, that's the main thing.

Xbox One and PS4 are both sold out in my area (Jacksonville, FL). It does not matter what countries the units are sold in. As long as they sell out. Both consoles have done this!! It is great news for gaming in general. The demand is ultra high. I own two Xbox Ones and we are extremely happy with them. My neighbor has a PS4 and he is extremely happy.

I think it shows that mobile gaming has had NO impact on console gaming. Console gaming and games are alive and well and will continue to grow and improve.

The PS4 lovers that comment here are pathetic and need to grow up. Enjoy your console and stop trolling message boards. Go hi-five yourselves on the Trophies site. You have a great console, stop wasting time on here and play your games!!!!
