Good for the Xbox but shows how well the PS4 has done given it managed that in the US alone. Question is whether there isn't the same interest in the X1 or if they've got a worse supply.

Now seriously those are good numbers. The only faction that should panic is the Nintendo one.

Cause the PS4 and Bone will sell really good.

Remember cows always saying NA=/=Worldwide, they'll likely say that again in a few months.

That is nice, but it will be more interesting to see sales numbers in about 6months if they can keep that up...

Looks like we have another tight competition for the new gen. Congrats to both Sony and Microsoft for great launch numbers.

Wait for NPD. I think it can reach the second most successful launch ever, which is really good.

Still good numbers for a launch though. Wonder how many PS4 consoles will sell in EU next week.

Compared to the PS4 that's pathetic. So what the PS4 sells in 2 country's the Xbox does in 13?

The Xbox One is shaping up to be a colossal failure.

Me too, would make for an interesting comparison. A good chunk of the Xbox One's million was likely from the UK.

Ofcourse it's good, imagine if they kept drm and banning used games.. would have been 300k :/

Anyways, Europe should sell another 1m+ Considering it's sony's strongest area, no reason why they cant match north america.

Nintendo should be very worried the PS4 hasn't hit Europe or Japan yet and the XBoxone has sold very well in its first day but Sony should still be way ahead of the competition come the end of 2014.

Great numbers! Glad the X1 is doing well! Though, knowing the PS4 hit the same mark in one region alone makes this sound a bit less impressive. Great numbers either way, congrats MS! :)

Stop being so positive.

Only smartphones/tablet fanboys said that. And maybe a couple of sheep.

But the only thing this show us, is how hungry the gamers are for a new tech.

Sony will hit twice that next week alone. Lol. #SDC

Nice numbers but still....#SDC. Sony sold that amount in two countries alone while M$ had to add 13 countries to equal Sony. :D Next week's Sony Euro launch should be interesting. I also can't wait to see November NPD numbers, should be the most epic ever.

Shows that WiiU is in serious trouble though and all the people that tried to say console gaming was dead because WiiU was flopping were full of shit.

Nice. Did anybody truly expect them to sell less? Sheesh, some folks are a trip. The Xbox is a big brand name now and their advertising is amazing.

From what I gather sold through means units sold to actual consumers versus sold to retailer.

MS has sold over 2 million to retailers by now.

PS4 = Over 1 million sold in just NA so far.

Xbone = 1 million worldwide sales.


I'm impressed with the sales for both consoles, but clearly the PS4 is going to dominate once it is released globally.

It's worldwide though compared to Sony's NA only 1 million sales. Still impressive but Sony is going to dominate once they release worldwide next week :P.

I honestly expected Microsoft to drop at least 1.5 million consoles worldwide on launch and at least match Sony in in North America. If MS lose NA then they are so screwed because Europe is certainly not going to be a big winner, and they can forget Japan.

If this continues there a strong possibility there is going to be a 2:1 - 3:1 ratio, which means Microsoft is going to find it a hard job getting exclusives. Just look how bad multiplats were on the PS3 when all the devs could not be arsed because they thought it had a small install base and were making excuses and saying Xbox is the lead platform, expect crappy ports if PS4 becomes the lead platform and not just in a lower res.

My guess is, they wanted to spare themselves the embarassment of having units on shelves in the US at launch. Would have been bad PR.

Sony dominating is a matter of when, not "if"

You mean a console that has a lower price and is going be sold in more countries is going to outsell a higher priced console in less countries! Thanks Captain Obvious! :P

It hasnt been 24 hours yet in NA so give them time. Also as long as they come close to selling out it doesnt really matter. Maybe sony produced more.
