Microsoft has revealed that over 5 million Xbox One units have been sold to retailers since the console's launch in November. Yusuf Mehdi, Xbox corporate vice president of marketing, strategy and business, also stated that the Xbox One is "outpacing Xbox 360 by more than 60 percent" in the same time period.
"It's amazing that Xbox One fans 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," said Yusuf. "Of course, we're just getting started with this generation and the months ahead will bring several announcements we think you'll love."
This new milestone for Microsoft's console was revealed a few hours after Sony announced that the PS4 sales had reached 7 million units worldwide.
