Microsoft Sold Over 5 Million Xbox Ones

Microsoft commented that they have sold 5 million X Boxes to stores since its launch in November. While sales figures have not been released since January, we know that 3.9 million of them were sold by the end of last year. This statement came after Sony mentioned selling more than 7 million PS4 units, up from 6 million last month. We can see now that Sony has taken the lead in the sales of consoles.

Their game software sales wasn't quite as good however. Sales of PC video games dropped 28% last month to $432 million from the same time last year. The reason seems to be that the purchasing of old consoles' games fell offer faster than anticipated after the release of PS4 and Xbox One. Not only that, many gamers are buying and downloading games over the internet, which would affect the retail stores' numbers.
