This has been a strong holiday for sales of video game consoles. Microsoft has done everything it can to turn around the sluggish sales of the Xbox One. The temporary $50 price cut in the US has helped push Xbox One sales.

The Xbox One has now sold more than 10 million units worldwide, with sales of 10.06 million units. The milestone was achieved on the week ending December 13, 2014, where it sold 546,189 units.

Great sales, congrats MS!

2015 will be an interesting year. That price cut saved MS this year, big time. Im hoping MS can make a pretty nice profit off the XB1. PS4 has got a decent size lead to try to play catch up with. Making the Xb1 profitable should be at top of the to do list.

Good, now on to 20 million!

I won't be surprise if it manage to do that by the end of 2015 with the help of Quantum Break, Gears of War (according to Shinobi602), and of course Halo 5:Guardians. But there are other things that might help it achieve that like Treyarch's next COD, the partnership with EA (EA Access,Madden and FIFA with bundles), and maybe an unexpected hit from Microsoft.

@ Darkenergy, it'll easily pass 20 million by the end of next year. It'll have most likely over 11 million by the end of 2014.

@Noble you mean 11.5 million by the end of 2014.

Personally, I think 11 million is SEALED! But if it can push it a but farther along these next 2 weeks, 12 million could be likely, but lets wait and see... :)

Well they definitely did everything in their power to turn things around and it appears to have payed off. I do hope this temporary price cut stays permanently as this price point seems to be keeping competition stiff and if they increase it back the way they originally were, I don't envision sales staying the way they are now.

Will it make 20 million by the end of 2015?


DanRybacki (on 28 December 2014)

I would say so, yes :-) Halo, Quantum Break etc. along with some new bundes should do the trick.

@super: LOL dont get carried away, it will never reach 25M next year and will struggle to reach 20M, sales YoY will be bad if the price cut disappears on jan 3.

Enjoying a distant second place, huh?

Well it looks like they almost pulled it off but numbers say a differnt story. Week ending 6th compared to the 13th. Sales were up across the board with all consoles except the XB1, which was down 8% from the previous week. Iam talking PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Wii, 3DS, PS Vita all of them had sales go up from the 6th to the 13th but not XB1. Sorry MS, you'll have to keep price drop and come out with some killer exclusives ASAP. Then again they sold more then the Wii U and Wii U had a 1 year head start.

And it took M$ this amount of money to buy their way to the spot. We all know M$ can't win gamers over with GAMES.


darkenergy (on 30 December 2014)

ThatDanishGamer (on 28 December 2014)

Only those who don't know what they are missing PS+ cost less than Xbox Live. PS+ cost $18 for 90 days while Xbox Live Gold cost $25 for 90 days. PS+ provides more value than Xbox Live Gold. The value of PS+ was $1,350 while the value of gold was $585
