It seems that Xbox One was something of a hit over the Christmas period, with a further one million units sold to consumers having already reached the 2 million milestone last month. Before the end of 2013, sales of Xbox One consoles climbed to a staggering 3 million.
Xbox One has been selling at a record-breaking pace in its 13 launch markets, and was the fastest-selling console in the US during launch month in November. It has also sold out at most retailers worldwide during the holiday period, prompting Microsoft to work hard in delivering stock to stores.
Microsoft's next-gen platform is set to launch in a host of other markets around the world in 2014, with more content and features promised for Xbox One this year. "Thank you for making 2013 truly epic for Xbox and here’s to 2014!" enthused Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate VP of Marketing, Strategy and Business for Xbox.
