Xbox One sell-in about to top 10 million thanks to $50 price cut

Xbox One has nearly shipped 10 million units to retailer worldwide, Microsoft has announced.  This comes after the $50 dollar price cut Microsoft issued just in time for the holiday season.  Xbox One sales have “more than tripled” since Microsoft knocked the price down, to be exact.

“The response to this wave of blockbuster game releases and new bundles has been amazing, and sales have skyrocketed since the new price took effect on Nov. 2,” executive Yusuf Mehdi said on Xbox Wire.

“Compared to the previous week, Xbox One sales in the US have more than tripled, which is exciting as more and more friends will be playing together this holiday.

“As we head into the busy holiday season Xbox One led generation 8 console sales in the US for the past two weeks. Shortly, we will have sold in to retailers more than 10 million Xbox One consoles.”

We haven’t gotten any updates on sales for the console for quite some time, although we’re still waiting on exact sold-through numbers.
