Xbox One sales triple after price cut, but can Microsoft keep it up?

The Microsoft Xbox One has seen sales triple since console price cuts, but many already wonder if the momentum can be carried into 2015

After being battered on the console sales charts by the Sony PlayStation 4, it looks Microsoft can finally be happy about the Xbox One. There have been almost 10 million Xbox One game consoles sold since launch, and with holiday shopping expected to be a major success in 2014, Microsoft should easily top that figure. The $50 price cut earlier in this month has helped sales triple over the past two weeks, with that sales trend carrying towards Christmas.




In a rather surprising twist, some are wondering if now is the time where Microsoft can outsell Sony during the holidays, when one month ago, that would have seemed like an illogical discussion.


It's good for Microsoft to see Xbox One sales increase, but it would appear that gamers are the true winners. In addition to both the Xbox One and PS4 - which have helped drive game sales - PC gaming, with extremely powerful hardware, has seen an impressive rise, just a couple years after many wondered if PC gaming was dead.
