Xbox One console breaks sales record!

Rubber is burning on the race circuits and enemy armies are crumbling on the battlefields. Microsoft has sold more than 1m Xbox One consoles in 24 hours, smashing previous records, and enthusiastic gamers are already putting their machines to the test.

The third version of the US firm's best-selling console, and the first new design to appear in eight years, made its debut in the UK and 13 other markets on Friday, but is already sold out in most retailers.

Microsoft statisticians estimate that owners of the new console have already dispatched more than 60m zombies, driven 3.6m miles and earned 43m fit points as they explore some of the 22 titles available at launch.

"Xbox One is now sold out at most retailers," the company said in a release. "We are working to replenish stock as fast as possible to meet the unprecedented demand from our customers."

Isn't 3.6 miles kinda bad.. The console has been out what over 24 hours now? Let's say there are was at least a min of 50k people on since release. That's a Average of like 3 miles driven every hour.

Congratulations to Microsoft.
Xbox #1 is the Champion of Next Gen and it's success is well deserved.
We just saw a great commercial for Xbox #1 during the Cowboys vs. Giants game and the entire world is embracing Xbox #1.

So wonderful.

As a Chicago Bears fan I was happy to see the commercial today featuring Brian Urlacher. The NFL integration into the console looks amazing. I can't wait to get mine.

At my game place, and one interesting thing to note, is that the amount of shipment we received for XB1's was significantly less than the PS4

We only had 29 XB1's compared to 102 PS4's. We also had 2 extra XB1's left over during the midnight release, whereas all PS4's were gone at the midnight release

Take that as you will
