While we have had numbers of PlayStation 4 where Sony claim to have hit 10 million consoles sold in August and 13.5 million sold in October, Microsoft has been a little quieter about their sales figures. Now however, Microsoft have announced the sales figures via Xbox Wire by confirming that they are soon to hit the 10 million consoles sold.
Microsoft’s price reduction to $349 will have helped boost sales along with recent and upcoming releases of games including some exclusives like:
- Halo: The Master Chief Collection
- Sunset Overdrive
- Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
- Assassin’s Creed Unity
- LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
Since the price drop happened in the USA on the 2nd November, Xbox One sales in the US have more than tripled over the week preceding the price drop.
The figures Sony and Microsoft provide are Sell In rather than Sell Through. Sell In is how many they have sold to retailers, Sell Through is how many made it into the homes of a customer.
