Microsoft Xbox One racks up 3 million units sold in 2013

Microsoft has something to be proud of with the success of its Xbox One next-generation console, likely outselling the Sony PlayStation 4 (NASDAQ:MSFT)

The Microsoft Xbox One game console is a hot seller for Microsoft, as the company has sold three million units in what little time it was available before the end of the year. As expected, the United States was a major influencer in Microsoft's success, where the company typically outperforms Sony and Nintendo.

"It's been incredible to see Xbox One selling at a record-setting pace for Xbox, and we were honored to see Xbox One become the fastest-selling console in the U.S. during our launch month in November," said Yusuf Mehdi, Xbox Corporate VP of Strategy and Marketing, in a press release. "Since our launch, demand for Xbox One has been strong, selling out throughout the holidays at most retailers worldwide."

 

This is a major victory for the Xbox One, as Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo remain locked in a battle to attract console gamers. Racking up three million units sold in six weeks is a great indicator that gamers are throwing their support behind Microsoft's next-generation console. The full scope of the console wars will be telling when a tech analyst group compares sales figures for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 game consoles.
