Xbox One Ships 1 Million In Under 24 Hours

Although there have been reports of the Xbox One having issues, that’s not stopped it from selling over 1 million consoles in less that 24 hours. Following similar success from the Playstation 4 it looks as if both consoles are off to a great start. In the UK, the Xbox One sold over 150,000 consoles which is double the figure of the Xbox 360’s launch numbers – and puts it just a few thousand units away from topping the Wii U’s lifetime sales in the UK (which launched December 2012).

Other interesting stats over the first 24 hours…

  • Over 60 million zombies have been killed in Dead Rising 3
  • Over 3.6 million miles were driven in Forza Motorsport 5
  • Over 7.1 million combos were pulled off in Killer Instinct
  • Over 8.5 million enemies have been defeated in Ryse: Son of Rome
  • Over 43.3 million Fit Points were earned in Xbox Fitness

While both consoles have had isolated hardware issues, it’s great to see both platforms start off solid.  Reviews and impressions of the Xbox One and games are on the way, so stay tuned!
