Something that was sort of predictable has happened. As it was the case with Sony’s PlayStation 4, Microsoft’s Xbox One has broken the 1 million sales of the console.
Microsoft launched its next-generation console at the mere beginning of Friday in 13 markets, unlike the PlayStation 4, which got released for the US and Canada, exclusively one week earlier, and which will launch for Europe and Latin America on November 29; and Microsoft has named this launch the “biggest launch in Xbox history” as it has surpassed the sales Microsoft got back in 2005 with the launch of the Xbox 360.
According to Microsoft, the Xbox One is sold out at most retailers, and that they will be working on filling those shelves back for Christmas.
