3 million Xbox One consoles sold in 2013

Analysts were underwhelmed with the demand for next-gen consoles, but it seems that gamers still snapped 'em up. Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox One is officially one of the fastest-selling consoles in history, selling more than 3 million units before the end of 2013.

Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate vice President of Marketing for Xbox, took to the Xbox blog to thank the console's many fans, but he's not resting on his laurels:

We’re excited for the year ahead and will be working hard to bring Xbox One to more fans and more markets around the globe. 2014 will be a promising year with many more great games on the way for Xbox One including “Titanfall,” “Watch_Dogs,” “Project Spark,” “Sunset Overdrive,” “Tom Clancy’s The Division,” “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” “Destiny,” “Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare,” and “The Elder Scrolls Online,” among others. More games, more features, more content, more fun – all coming your way this year.

Initially, it looked like Sony would win the initial console battle, but Microsoft looks like it was better prepared for launch.

Sony is struggling with demand - Australian gamers will be unlikely to pick up a PlayStation 4 in-store before some time next month - but Microsoft stocks have remained relatively steady.

That said, it's very likely that Sony figures will be comparable to those announced by Microsoft, which suggests more than 5 million next-gen consoles were sold in just a month and a half.
