Microsoft: We are "selling every Xbox One we can make"

4.7
Earlier today, Sony announced that after the launch of the PlayStation 4 in 30 more markets in Europe and Latin America last week, it has now sold over 2.1 million units of the console since it was first released in the U.S and Canada on Nov. 15. However, it appears that Microsoft seems to be more reluctant to offer any updated sales numbers for the Xbox One, which launched in 13 markets on Nov. 22.

Back then, Microsoft said it sold over one million Xbox One units in its first 24 hours. Today, in a statement sent to AllThingsD, Yusuf Mehdi, the Corporate Vice President of Marketing and Strategy for Microsoft's Xbox division, offered this rather vague update on sales of the console:

Eleven days in we are seeing record breaking sales and are selling every Xbox One we can make. Demand is far exceeding supply in the 13 countries we’ve launched and we are sold out at retailers around the world.

Unfortunately, that optimistic statement did not come with a updated sales figure for the Xbox One, as Sony offered today for the PS4. There is evidence from a third party consumer study that the Xbox One outsold the PS4 in the U.S. last week during Black Friday. Hopefully the company will offer some concrete figures on this subject soon.

I'm curious to see if they can manage to sell most of their stock.

Cokes I don't know if EVERYONE wants to buy one at this point. Amazon had Xbox's available for over 5 hours after more were in stock. PS4 was sold after 3 minutes of more becoming available.


That doesn't mean anything.
If it does mean anything, it would mean that MS has made more Xbox than Sony has made PS's.

Not true AT ALL. I woke up early to get one off Amazon and luckily did after refreshing the page for a couple of minutes. Once I bought it I was gonna buy another for my friend but it was already sold out by then.

I'm really looking forward to see the total sales, it should show which console is more popular. The way MS is talking though makes it seem like they are embarrassed to show their stats because they are probably behind and don't want people knowing it.
