After the launch of PS4, Sony had announced that they had sold more than 1 million PlayStation 4 consoles in US and Canada in one day. And now after Day 1 of the new Xbox launch, Microsoft has announced that they have already sold more than one million units in 24 hours.

Microsoft has not given any regional sales information, but the company proudly states that Xbox One is the biggest launch in the Xbox history. The company also said that this launch has also surpassed day one Xbox 360 sales and has set a new record for Microsoft. 

Xbox One is sold out in most retailers, for which the company says “We are working to replenish stock as fast as possible to meet the unprecedented demand from our customers”. 

We are humbled and grateful for the excitement of Xbox fans around the world,” said Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Marketing and Strategy, Xbox. “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.”
