Microsoft have revealed that their Xbox One console has shipped over 5 million units. This is good news for Microsoft as it means the Xbox One s outselling the Xbox 360 by 60% at the same point in time. Obviously shipped units isn’t the same as being sold to individual consumers but it’s still very positive.
Microsoft have also said that Xbox One gamers “are spending an average of five hours per day on Xbox One and collectively have totaled more than one billion hours of time spent in games and apps on the console.”
So far the PlayStation 4 has outsold the Xbox One every month since their release however the more expensive Microsoft product means Microsoft have made at least an equal amount of money in sales.
The PlayStation 4 has shipped over 7 million units worldwide according to numbers released a few days ago by Sony.
