It seems that the Xbox One has been selling like hotcakes, as the latest console from Microsoft has broken the 1 million unit mark in sales among consumers in its first release day; making it the best selling Xbox system in Xbox history. Naturally this launch beats out the Xbox 360’s by a wide margin.

According to Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Marketing and Strategy:

We are humbled and grateful for the excitement of Xbox fans around the world. 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. We are working hard to create more Xbox One consoles and look forward to fulfilling holiday gift wishes this season.
