Though Sony has sold more than 6 million PS4 consoles, Microsoft may be closer in sales than you think.
"On March 13, Microsoft released a statement regarding the success of the Xbox One, calling it the most successful launch in Xbox history. “Xbox One continues selling at a record-breaking pace with 258,000 units sold in the U.S. in the month of February, surpassing Xbox 360 sales by over 61 percent at the same point in time,” the statement read. “And, Xbox 360 continues to grow its install base with 114,000 units sold in February in the U.S. in its 100th month on the market in the U.S., more than any other seventh generation console."
Microsoft also revealed some impressive sales figures – more than 772,000 Xbox One games sold in February, while 2.46 million Xbox 360 games also flew off shelves. The combined sales figures made up for 48 percent of the total software market share. The Xbox One is also averaging 2.75 games sold per console. The Xbox One and Xbox 360 sold more hardware than any other home console platform and was accountable for 43 percent of the home console market share in the US"
the next few months sales figures should be interesting for the board to see, to say the least. MS/Xbox One seem to be really carrying some momentum onward. especially since the release Titanfall and it being rumored to have given the system a sales boost as well. with the games already announce 2014 games, and E3 right around the corner, things are looking good for them.
i was sure the price difference and damage would affect things for them early in the gen. but i also felt that it all could be turned around gradually by releasing a system with more, and better features...as well as a better selection of high profile games. seems to be doing just that...just quicker than i thought it would.
only the beginning of the video discusses the thread topic but i'm adding it for those who didn't feel like reading the article.
