Microsoft's launch of the Xbox One has seen 1 million consoles fly out the door, with the company calling it the "biggest launch in Xbox history". The Xbox One launched in 13 markets across the world, including the United States, Australia, parts of Europe and South America.

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

 

We know that Sony sold 1 million PlayStation 4s in the first 24 hours of it being launched, but it is a more impressive number considering it was only in the US and Canada. This is a more impressive number, at least to me, because it's just two markets, and not the many more that Microsoft launched the Xbox One in.
