Xbox One has sold over one million units in the first 24 hours
The next generation of console gaming is now officially in full swing with the release of the Xbox One. How did it do on its first day? Oh, just one million in the first 24 hours.
The day one sale was announced by Microsoft just recently. The Xbox One was launched in 13 markets: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Microsoft is also reporting this to be the biggest Xbox launch in history.
With the PS4 also hitting the one million mark, this shows that the gaming industry is growing bigger and bigger despite it's short-comings as a whole.
Microsoft also shared a few stats on their exclusive titles:
- Over 60 million zombies have been killed in “Dead Rising 3”
- Over 3.6 million miles driven in “Forza Motorsport 5"
- Over 7.1 million combos in “Killer Instinct”
- Over 8.5 million enemies defeated in “Ryse: Son of Rome”
