Xbox One sales have doubled since June
According to Microsoft, Xbox One sales have doubled since June, thanks to the launch of a kinect-less sku and an impressive holiday lineup. The company didn’t announce any exact sales, but since the Xbox One sold about 77k units, it may have reached the 150k mark. The official NPD group will release the full hardware and sales report tomorrow, so we’ll have to wait and see if Microsoft actually overtook Sony in hardware sales in the U.S.
Moving into the very near future, Microsoft said “new blockbuster hits will launch for Xbox One at an incredible pace throughout the fall”, starting with Madden NFL 15 in August.
“Gamers love the holidays and we are lining up incredible deals and special promotions to celebrate. The fun is just getting started and we can’t wait to share more exciting news soon,” the company added. Stay tuned tomorrow for an official report on sales.
