    Three Million Xbox One Units Were Sold In 2013

    Three Million Xbox One Units Were Sold In 2013

    November 2013 was the month when gaming fans around the world were pumped up and excited because both Sony and Microsoft were releasing their next generation consoles. The initial launch took place in limited markets and almost immediately all pre-order and day one stock was sold out. Since then over the following weeks both companies released the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in additional markets. Its been a while since Sony updated us on PS4 sales stats, on the other hand Microsoft has revealed that it sold over three million Xbox One units in 2013.

    This figure combines sales of the next generation console in 13 markets in 2013, and the number will definitely go up in 2014 as even more markets are added. Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi says that demand for the console has been strong since its launch. Last we heard from Sony on the PS4 was when it announced that the console only took 16 days to cross the 2.1 million units sold milestone, whereas the Xbox One crossed a similar milestone in 18 days. Sony hasn’t revealed any more stats since then, presumably its only a matter of time before it too announces that over three million units have now been moved to gaming enthusiasts around the world. Microsoft says that 2014 is going to be a promising year with more games, content and features in the pipeline.

    Another Indianapolis GameStop Robbed, 15 Xbox One Units Taken

    Another Indianapolis GameStop Robbed, 15 Xbox One Units Taken

    It has been over a month since both Sony and Microsoft released their next generation consoles, the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. The demand still remains high with retailers trying their best to have inventory on hand so that customers can be catered to. Earlier this month a GameStop was robbed in Indianapolis, the robbers asked for all Xbox One units but since that store was sold out, they went away with PS4s. This week, yet another GameStop was robbed in Indianapolis with 15 Xbox One units being taken away.

    Two men entered the store, one brandishing a “long silver revolver,” and the other a black semi-automatic pistol. Three employees, four customers and the manager were then taken to a storage room where their hands were tied with zip-tires. The robbers then took 15 Xbox One units, some cash from the store and a victim’s wallet after stomping on their phone. So far no arrests have been made and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police is conducting an investigation. Its easy to comprehend why there have been such robberies ever since the consoles were announced. With supplies remaining tight, the consoles can be sold for inflated prices online, there is no shortage of people who are willing to pay extra just to be able to get their hands on the new console.
