3 Million XBOX One Sales in 2013

3 Million XBOX One Consoles SoldIt has been a while since we have actually gotten any sales numbers from the great console sales race of 2013. As the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) begins this week Microsoft has provided the world with an update.  In a blog post from Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Advertising, Strategy and Business, for the XBOX division, the most up to date tallies have actually been detailed.

“Over 3 million Xbox One systems were offered to customers in 13 nations prior to the end of 2013. It has been extraordinary to see Xbox One selling at a record-setting speed for Xbox, and we were recognized to see Xbox One end up being the fastest-selling console in the United States throughout our launch month in November. Considering that our launch, need for Xbox One has been strong, selling out throughout the holidays at most merchants worldwide. We are remaining to work hard to deliver extra systems to sellers as quick as possible.”

That is three million consoles sold worldwide in only about 5-6 weeks of sales in 2013. Last we heard, Microsoft hit 2 million sales in very early December. The two million unit announcement was made just before  Sony revealed 2.1 million in worldwide PlayStation 4 sales. Sony has yet to provide an update to the current number of PlayStation 4 sales for 2013. If Sony has numbers to top Microsoft’s 3 million in 2013, we’ll likely become aware of it quickly as they attempt to steal the Xbox One’s thunder.

In the meantime, we just have Microsoft’s data, and 3 million Xbox Ones sold in about six weeks after launch is without a doubt remarkable. As a reference, Microsoft shipped 1.5 million Xbox 360s during that console’s launch in the last couple of weeks of 2005. This figure is easily double that, thinking about units delivered doesn’t necessarily equal units offered.

Microsoft likewise made a point to emphasize the enormous amount of United States sales in this announcement. Generally the Xbox exceeds Sony’s PlayStation in the US market, however Sony pulls ahead worldwide, particularly in Asia, for apparent reasons. If PlayStation 4 is ahead in total sales total, they have the worldwide market to thank.

I do expect we’ll hear Sony’s figures shortly now that Microsoft has actually made this announcement. If I had to guess, Sony may still have the edge in regards to total sales, however it won’t be by much, and Xbox does have an additional $100 on its cost. If there have been more than six million next generation consoles offered this holiday season in between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, this was a winter without equal for Sony and Microsoft.

Mehdi ends his post stating just how much he’s anticipating 2014, noting expected games that will be out for the Xbox One like Fate, Titanfall, Watch Dogs, The Division and more. With barely a handful of truly beneficial next-gen games out on either system today, 2014 will be the time when these brand-new systems go from hopeful Christmas presents to outright must haves.

  1. wow! that is a lot of xbox’s going out the door! and that was very fast because i know we were sold where i live here in the first 3 days

  2. I am a pleased PlayStation 2 owner, and I am disappointed to discover that there are no PS2 games slated for release in 2013. As many of you might not be mindful, there were a number of quality games launched for the platform last year– including Big league Baseball 2K12 and various other great games.

    When Skyrim was being previewed on gaming sites, I was delighted to play the game. Nevertheless, I quickly found that the game would be launched for only PC, PS3, and Xbox 360– which Bathesda Studios had no plans to port the game to PS2. Upon this discovery, I can not think how the developer would neglect a set up base of over 150 million PS2 owners. Then I considered that possibly they thought that the PS2’s hardware was not up to the job. OK, maybe it is not as powerful as the PS3– however if the game settings were scaled back and a few visual modifications were made, the PS2 would most definitely be able to run the game smoothly. Definitely, the PS2 is a technical marvel– its exclusive CPU, entitled “Emotion Engine”, can definitely manage the load, and do not be tricked by its 294 MHz clock speed, it’s 64-Bit after all– and did I discuss it has numerous co-processors? It’s GPU is likewise outstanding, again with outstanding proprietary “Graphics Synthesizer” innovation, it has actually impressed millions of video gaming fans the world over– no demand to mention its outstanding specifications or its variety of functions.

    It is a shame how designers are not porting their brand-new games to the PS2. If they decline to support my gaming console, then I will refuse to support them. There is a vast brochure of quality PS2 games for me to rediscover on my effective device, and it will be several years before I am prepared to upgrade to another cutting edge system. As a happy PS2 owner, I am sticking with my old faithful.

    By the way, exists any possibility Skyrim could be ported to the PS2 soon?

  3. I have actually been just recently messing around with the map editor in Far Cry 3, and I am genuinely irritated by something: The things restriction. Not for the entire map, I have actually never ever utilized all that, however the quantity of items allowed the grid. I can only place a few things prior to I need to relocate to another grid space. I am using Xbox 360. My close friend says he never ever has this problem, and he plays on PS3. Is there any means to deal with the amount of objects allowed the grid? The eighteen AI enabled is kind of irritating too, but I am most concerned about the grid space,.

  5. After Declining PlayStation 3 Sales do you people think that A PS4 will be launched after ps3s life-span or will Sony take PlayStation brand name from consoles to Handhelds just (ex: Instead of PS4 they make PSP2).

    Please Keep all Fanboy remarks to yourselves Just real company associated facts.

    Its just appears insane to launch PS4 since PSP just reached 50mil devices offered mark right after PS2, and PS3 is hardly at 21,084,315 systems.
    @ Jason N. Yeah that’s what I was thinking, but seems unlikely that MS would release a console this soon considering that Wii is new and already has actually passed 44million device line, I don’t think MS would do it either up until Wii 2 or Bii is revealed lol …

  6. Video gam industry is now falling. Right here are a few of my thoughts

    – The generation which really took video gaming to a whole various other level is around 2002-2006 is proceeding. Ever majot console at that time was offering like crazy. h3ll one of the most sold video games of all time was from that age which was GTA San andrea selling over 25 million on PS2 alone. Those players are now in college, starting families, or simply not into it anymore.

    -Cost. It has utterly foolish. $60 for a games which can be completed in 8-10 hours, 5-6 for seasoned, and then they charge $10-$15 dollars for add ons so you can get the entire game.

    -It is burning out. For example. WoW had more than 12 million users at one point who paid to play. nevertheless after a couple of brand-new additions it has truly not lived up to the hype and has lost millions of users now averaging around 7.7 million – 8.3 million. Exact same opts for consoles also. Games like call of responsibility are dead after coming to a head with MW2. Mw2 was the only i saw where i can state i saw million of individuals on at the same time. However it was the very same BS maps were not imaginative and they simply left it the exact same. BF3 changed for a little bit however it got old with all the camping glitching as well loosing millions of customers.

    -In June 2013 games sales dropped 15 % and in July 17 % … I think the video game market has seen is finest days go by it. People simply do not care any longer.
