Microsoft Confirms That Xbox One Sales More Than Doubled In June With New $399 Model

In May, Microsoft announced a new Xbox One SKU at a lower price point that will start at $399. The only difference is that you won’t get Kinect sensor with it. This SKU was made available in all markets where Xbox One is currently on sale. Xbox Marketing Director Harvey Eagle recently said during a talk attended by TrustedReviews that they are seeing increasing sales momentum for Xbox One in the past weeks. Today, Microsoft confirmed the same by officially announcing that over the past month, they have seen a strong spike in interest in Xbox One console options, including the new $399 offering. In fact, since the new $399 Xbox One on June 9th, sales of Xbox One more than double in the US, compared to sales in May, and solid growth in Xbox 360 sales.

We’re excited to welcome so many fans to Xbox this summer and we can’t wait for them to get their hands on the wide selection of new games available this year on Xbox One, including
Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Sunset Overdrive, Forza Horizon 2, and Ori and the Blind Forest. Xbox One is the only place you can play these games along with creative independent titles and blockbusters such as Assassin’s Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Destiny, Evolve, Grand Theft Auto V, and dozens more. We’re honored that Xbox One was awarded with the best games line-up of 2014 by game critics at E3 and our fans have a lot of amazing new games to look forward to in the coming months.

    Great news for Microsoft. So Sony’s edge above the Xbox1 has been eroded by Microsoft giving consumers more choice. By the way, Q1 sales of PS4 in Japan was dismall, about 17 thousand units over a 3 months period. Sony is having problems selling the PS4 in it’s own home market. These developments are not encouraging for Sony.

      XB sales are already down again in July. It was a one time bump. PS4 will continue outselling XB globally for the entire generation, it’s almost 2:1 in sales.

      PS4 is selling reasonably well in Japan given the shrinking console market. About as well as the Wii U and PS3, 7-8k a week. Sales will pick up with more Japanese focused games. XB will do far worse in Japan just like the 360.

      You have no clue what you are talking about.
