Microsoft keeps pace with Sony, sells 2 million Xbox Ones


There are no losers (except Nintendo) in the epic Microsoft-Sony console war so far. Microsoft’s Xbox Live programming director Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb announced on Wednesday that Microsoft has now sold 2 million Xbox One consoles in the two-and-a-half weeks since its November 22nd launch. In hitting the 2 million sales mark, Microsoft has kept pace with Sony, which announced last week that it has sold roughly 2.1 million PlayStation 4 consoles so far. Given that Sony had a one-week head start over Microsoft because it launched the PlayStation 4 on November 15th, it’s fair to say that neither company has emerged as a clear winner in the early stages of the next-generation console wars.
