Today Microsoft thanked gamers for their support and revealed that the Xbox One has set a new record for the Xbox franchise.
This record is that the newest console from Microsoft has officially become the fastest-selling console since November, constantly selling out at major retailers throughout the holiday season. When all is said and done, the company sold over three million Xbox One consoles before January 1, 2014.
The rep that provided this information stated, ” The reaction from our fans was mind-blowing for our team. As we see your excitement, your energy and your hours of gameplay, we continue to be inspired to do great work – for you. Whether you’re racing through the streets of Prague in Forza Motorsport 5, creating crazy weapons for zombie destruction in Dead Rising 3, exploring the Coliseum in Gladiator mode in Ryse: Son of Rome,” helping your children create their own personal zoo in Zoo Tycoon, or enjoying epic multiplayer battles, we love that you’re having fun on Xbox One.”
He went on to state that people are utilizing the console as an all-in-one entertainment system, as the company hoped. “Millions of hours of live TV have been watched and millions of hours of app entertainment have been enjoyed,” he stated. “We are proud to have the most passionate, engaged, and simply the best fans in the world. It was fun to share the holidays with so many of you.”
He wrapped things up by announcing a series of Xbox One games that will arrive in 2014, stating, “We’re excited for the year ahead and will be working hard to bring Xbox One to more fans and more markets around the globe. 2014 will be a promising year with many more great games on the way for Xbox One including Titanfall, Watch Dogs, Project Spark, Sunset Overdrive, Tom Clancy’s The Division, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Destiny, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, and The Elder Scrolls Online, among others. More games, more features, more content, more fun – all coming your way this year.”
