A few weeks ago, Microsoft announced that it had sold over 3 million Xbox One consoles to consumers from its launch on November 22th to the end of 2013. Today, as part of its quarterly financial report, Microsoft revealed that it has sold 3.9 million Xbox One consoles during its last quarter to retail stores.
The numbers also include 3.5 million Xbox 360 consoles that were sold to the retail channel, for a total of 7.4 million Xbox devices that were purchased by stores for the last quarter. Remember, these numbers are for console units that are bought by customers like GameStop, Walmart and Target, rather than the sales recorded to consumers.
Last week, Microsoft said that in the U.S. it sold 908,000 Xbox One units in December, making it the best selling home console for that month. The Xbox 360 sold 643,000 units in December in the U.S, which made the eight year old device the third best selling home console for that month.
Hopefully, Microsoft will offer more information on Xbox One sales during its financial quarterly conference call with analysts. It is scheduled to be held at 5:30 pm ET today.
