The Xbox One will be one year old on November 22, while its rival the Wii U celebrated its two year anniversary on November 18. The Xbox One has outsold the Wii U worldwide as of the week ending November 15. The Xbox One has sold 7.61 million units worldwide, while the Wii U has sold 7.45 million units.
Xbox One sales have shot up in November due to the temporary price cut in the US and the release of several key titles including Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Assassin's Creed Unity. In just two weeks in November the Xbox One has sold 921,010 units.
While Xbox One sales have increased, Wii U sales have remained stagnant selling just 151,540 units in two weeks in November. Although the release of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will help increase Wii U sales.
To compare sales, the PlayStation 4 has sold 14.4 million units worldwide by week ending November 15. This is almost as much as the Xbox One and Wii U combined.
