Not to be outdone by its main competitor, Microsoft has announced that the Xbox One has already sold through over one million units within 24 hours. This is a record breaking figure for the company as it surpassed the day one sales of the Xbox 360, which was released eight years ago.
In addition, Microsoft has released a multitude of additional stats that give a good glimpse into what titles gamers are digging so far:
- Over 60 million zombies have been killed in Dead Rising 3
- Over 3.6 million miles have been driven in Forza Motorsport 5
- Over 7.1 million combos in Killer Instinct
- Over 8.5 million enemies defeated in Ryse: Son of Rome
- Over 43.3 million Fit Points earned in Xbox Fitness
Of course, after Sony came out and announced that the PlayStation 4 sold over one million units, you knew that Microsoft was going to do the same. It’s not hard to believe either, as the Xbox name has cultivated a decent sized fanbase since its inception. It also helps that the system is available in 13 different markets so far, but I digress.
While Microsoft has yet to reveal the specific numbers for North America alone, it will be interesting to see how the sales for the Xbox One compare to the PlayStation 4 now and throughout the rest of 2013.
