Xbox One Sales Hit 1 Million in First 24 Hours

The Xbox One got sold in 13 markets and got quite an ovation from the crowd of eager gamers. November 22nd was the date of the launch. A new record was set in Xbox history. Never before have a million units been sold in less than a day’s time span. This time around even the previous Xbox 360 sales were surpassed. 

Microsoft definitely deserves a pat on the back for this achievement. Meanwhile, the competition with Sony’s PlayStation 4 is in full swing too. While Sony’s PS4 too sold over a million units, it only got promoted in 11 markets. Besides, Sony still has its stocks intact. However, stores are out of Xbox One units right now. 

The staff and workers at Microsoft are doing all that lies in their capacity to create more units. The reason for this is that the demand from customers remains high. Gamers have already started collecting points in various games on Xbox One. 

About 60 million zombies that trek across the Golden Gate Bridge have been killed so far in Dead Rising 3. Approximately, 3.6 million miles have been covered in Forza Motorsport 5. And finally about 8.5 million opponents have been defeated in Ryse: Son of Rome where Roman soldiers close in on Times Square. The experts at Microsoft’s gaming division are grateful to the public and fans for showing such a lively response. They promise to come up with similarly high quality stuff in the future. 

Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Marketing and Strategy, Xbox, said, “We are humbled and grateful for the excitement of Xbox fans around the world. Seeing thousands of excited fans lined up to get their Xbox One and their love for gaming was truly a special moment for everyone on the Xbox team. We are working hard to create more Xbox One consoles and look forward to fulfilling holiday gift wishes this season.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
