Forums - Sales Discussion - Microsoft: More than 5 million Xbox One units shipped

 

The team and I had the honor of joining thousands of you in Austin, Texas at SXSW this past March as you waited in line for the Titanfall launch on Xbox One. We were blown away by your passion and enthusiasm on launch night and since then, it’s been exciting to see gamers around the world playing “Titanfall” on Xbox Live. Today, we congratulate our friends at Respawn Entertainment, and Electronic Arts, as “Titanfall” for Xbox One was named the number one selling game in March, according to NPD Group figures released today. 

We’re also happy to share today that more than 5 million Xbox One consoles have been sold-in to retailers since our launch. The new generation is off to a strong start, with global Xbox One sales outpacing Xbox 360 by more than 60 percent at the same point in time, a true testament to your love of console gaming. Even more important to us is how much fun you are having on Xbox One. It’s amazing that Xbox One fans are spending an average of five hours per day on Xbox One and collectively have totaled more than one billion hours of time spent in games and apps on the console.  We’re also thrilled to see your use and enjoyment of the latest features and apps we have released as part of our regular system updates.  In particular, we broke new usage records with the number of unique Twitch broadcasters in the first week of availability. 

Of course, we’re just getting started with this generation and the months ahead will bring several announcements we think you’ll love. The team will continue to deliver regular improvements and new features based on your feedback through frequent system updates. Many more games are on the way with titles like “Sunset Overdrive” and “Project Spark,” many new games coming to Xbox One through the ID@Xbox program, and many more entertainment experiences.  We can’t wait to share more games with you in June at E3. 

We are grateful for your support on Xbox One and the continued popularity of Xbox 360. We’re going to continue working hard to earn your loyalty and making Xbox the best place to play games.

Unless it's severely undertracked in Europe. Yes.



So in the grand scheme its really only 2 million behind (for now). You'd think with how PS4 has been selling the gap should be alot more.

Introduce a $350 kinectless SKU, keep pushing the bundles, Japan console decline/China wildcard, and offcourse the September launch in a couple dozen countries. Still anybodies game. MS just has to act fast and lose the last Don Mattrick legacy product.

Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

If you think Sony have only shipped 7m...

Since it's available in 72 countries I'm going to say 500k on shelves WW can still mean shortages in many places. So about 7.5m shipped for the fiscal year is my guess. And MS could be talking about shipments as of today or something (we don't know, fiscal results will show us the way), whereas Sony was talking about sales to consumers as of April 6



I know they aren't going to come out and say they have sold less than PS4, but I really wish they would tell us actual sales.

5 million sounds good compared to 7 million but it is probably at least a month until that figure is actually sold through to consumers.



so sony SOLD 7 million and MS SHIPPED 5? How much is the gap? ~2.7 million consoles?! WOW

Not to take anything away from the (very good) Xbox sales reported in the OP...

I have to ask: How many of those 5 hours is actually spent playing games? Because as we all know - it gets used for media stuff a lot. People watch a lot of TV, Skype, etc.
