Xbox Corporate Vice President of Marketing Yusuf Mehdi has announced that Microsoft will have shipped 10 million Xbox One consoles shortly. He stated the growth in sales is due to the $349 price point in the US and exclusives such as Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Sunset Overdrive.
"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. 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," said Mehdi.
"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."
