Microsoft today announced that the Xbox One has done quite well since launch. Even with how popular the Xbox 360 was, the Xbox One has sold at over twice the rate -- 2.29 to be exact. That's good news for the company, and while the PlayStation 4 sold more in January, Xbox games still dominate the US charts.
In a lengthy post on the official Xbox site, executive Yusuf Mehdi laid out a few numbers. Aside from the rate of Xbox One sales, he noted that Xbox games cover a good 47 percent of the software market, with 2.27 million units sold. This includes both Xbox One and Xbox 360 games, since the now last-gen console still represents a major portion of the gaming scene.
Apparently, US consumers bought an average of 2.7 games per console since the Xbox One was released. As for the games themselves, Xbox One and 360 games still dominate the sales charts, even with the PS4 coming out on top in hardware.
Yusuf relayed Microsoft's gratitude to their fans, noting, "We are incredibly humbled and proud to see Xbox One continue to be the best launch of an Xbox in our history."
The company is, of course, banking on Titanfall being one of their biggest money makers. The PC/Xbox exclusive shooter entered beta today on Xbox One and PC.
