Microsoft has sold over 1 million Xbox One units in the next-gen console’s first 24 hours according to the company.  “We are humbled and grateful for the excitement of Xbox fans around the world,” said Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Marketing and Strategy, Xbox. “Seeing thousands of excited fans lined up to get their Xbox One and their love for gaming was truly a special moment for everyone on the Xbox team. 

The company says that surpasses first-day sales of the Xbox 360, the previous-generation model that went on sale eight years ago.  The software giant said Friday that it sold had out at most retailers and that it is working to replenish stocks. It added that in the first day of game play, fans killed over 60 million zombies in "Dead Rising 3" and drove more than 3.6 million miles on "Forza Motorsport 5."


The Xbox One was released at retail in 13 different markets on Friday, November 22nd. Sony’s PlayStation 4 sold over 1 million units in the same time-frame last week in just three markets, though both consoles launched in the United States on day one, the most important market from a commercial standpoint.
