“We continue to be humbled and overwhelmed by the positive response from our fans. We are thrilled to see sales of Xbox One on a record-setting pace, with over 2 million Xbox One consoles in homes around the world. Demand is exceeding supply in our 13 launch markets and Xbox One is sold out at most retailers.  We’re also particularly excited to see consumers engaging in a wide range of games and entertainment experiences on the platform, with more than 1 million paid transactions on Xbox Live to date,” said Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of strategy and marketing, Xbox.

“Demand for next generation gaming continues to be very strong,” said John Love, director of video games at Amazon. And the Xbox One console was ordered at over 1000 units per minute on Amazon. Xbox One was also a top seller on Walmart U.S. this Black Friday. Both Walmart and GameStop executives states that Xbox One is one of the hottest selling products this holiday season.
