Another milestone was reached by Microsoft and their Xbox One next generation platform on Monday. The company posted on their corporate Microsoft website that as of the end of 2013, Xbox One has sold over 3 million units. This shows that the public is loving the Xbox One.
As the sales of the Xbox One quickly went from 2 million to 3 million, the number of sales for the Xbox One is astounding. The company is producing as many units as they possibly can, and fulfilling retailers requests as often as they can, and even that isn’t enough today.
Still Only 13 Countries For These Numbers
As the sales of Microsoft’s Xbox One eclipse over 3 million units, the numbers are quite staggering considering the console is still only available in only 13 countries around the globe. Sony’s Playstation 4 is available in more countries but the sales figures for that console are just above the the Xbox One according to latest reports.
By limiting the console to only 13 countries, Microsoft is slowly rolling it out to the countries globally. They don’t want to overdo it and underwhelm users around the world, and will be slowly launching it other countries over the next 12 months. The 13 countries are still the most popular for Microsoft, and making the Xbox One shine there.
Bigger 2014 Ahead
In its blog post, Microsoft thanked the users of the Xbox One for the huge launch. But the all-in-one entertainment system of course has a lot more to go, and Microsoft was sure to point that out in the post. Other major games were noted in the post, and additional highlights of the system were highlighted.
Games like “Titanfall,” “Watch_Dogs,” “Project Spark,” “Sunset Overdrive,” “Tom Clancy’s The Division,” “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” “Destiny,” “Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare,” and “The Elder Scrolls Online,” and others are planned for 2014. Game makers and gamers are awaiting these games from Microsoft and its partners, and should make for a prosperous 2014 for the Xbox One from Microsoft and its shareholders.
I love my Xbox 360 and my Xbox One. 3 million units sold is huge, and should be 10 million by the end of 2014 I think.
