Xbox One Sales Are At 26 Million Units Worldwide, SuperData Estimates

Another year on year decline worldwide.

Posted By | On 17th, Jan. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605


While Microsoft won’t give us sales numbers for their console themselves, instead opting to share other metrics that they feel are more relevant to their business, we do get an update on the console’s sales every now and then anyway. Other sources, such as third party publishers, and analyst and tracking firms, usually update us on an estimated total for the Xbox One’s worldwide sales infrequently.

One of those analyst and tracking firms, SuperData, has now revealed that the Xbox One’s sales are at an estimated 26 million units worldwide. In a report on the upcoming Nintendo Switch’s expected performance in the market, SuperData said that the Switch launches into a market with 55 million units sold for the PS4, and 26 million for the Xbox One.

This is actually a rather dismal number- at this time last year, the Xbox One’s worldwide total was estimated to be 19 million, meaning that in the year that has followed since, Xbox has only sold 7 million units. This represents another year on year decline worldwide– although Microsoft have previously claimed that in the US, at least, Xbox has seen gains year on year in the last few months of 2016.

Regardless, however, in terms of overall performance, the prognosis is grim- and doubtless Microsoft will be hoping that the upcoming Xbox One Scorpio revitalizes their fortunes. As it stands now, however, the Xbox One’s sales seem to be losing momentum far too rapidly.

      Retarded.

    • crazy_black_man-

      What? Buying an unpopular console that’s clearly on its last legs from a company that’s hiding it’s market losses, with no clear vision, no visible enthusiastic developer support, and no major exclusives in the pipeline?

      I agree. Thats retarded.

    • Mr Xrat

      We know you are.

    • Michael

      Hate to break it to you king pony but those numbers are wrong…lol

    • crazy_black_man-

      You might be right. 26 million seems a bit much. People out there are clearly stupid as evidenced by Trump support, but are 26 million people THAT stupid???

      I, just like you, would surely think not!

    • Michael

      Like paying 600 dollars for ps3 stupid…lol

    • crazy_black_man-

      The PS3 introduced bluray tech to consoles and was actually one of the best on the market, while the Xbox 360 introduced paid DLC because they were still using old DVD tech and couldn’t handle the size of current games as well as bluray could. Remember that failed HD DVD addon? We won’t talk about that, okie dokie?

      But actually Michael, stupid is more like paying upwards of $500 for a launch Xbox One, and now you can get one free with 2 games just for sending in 2 boxtops from participating cereal brands like Cocoa Pebbles, and Honey Nut Cheerios.

      Damn that’s cold…lol

    Dismal year for Microsoft , and this year will be just as bad. Let’s hope that Scorpio can save them as Sony needs competition and I can’t see that coming from Nintendo.
    Amazon UK no stock of PSVR and PS4 Pro.

    • indeed >< dafuk sony…

    • Holeybartender

      Wait,wait,wait. What if Sony as the only competition isn’t such a bad thing? How awesome gaming could be with Nintendo and Microsoft just making games for one console? Oh wait,Atari…

    • Rock Gnarly

      Sometimes competition is good, sometimes it’s bad. Note all three console makers charging for online now.

    • Holeybartender

      I was kinda hoping they would’ve stop charging for online gameplay by now and revitalize the single player game market but oh well…

    • Michael

      Yea, but only one said they would never do that a d did it anywhere.#ponyswillpay.

    • Riggybro

      Oh wait, Windows.

  • Rock Gnarly

    Exposed! And you have to remember, they only got to this number by dumping the price on their console super quick. That’s why I keep telling people that the Scorpio is a sly method of moving to the next generation without actually having to call it “next-gen”.

    They don’t want to stick with Xbox One, the only reason it exists is to keep Sony from dominating America by selling it super cheap. In the grand scheme of things, this is a useless tactic.

    • Holeybartender

      Sly method? During the Scorpio “reveal” they said they were making the Scorpio specs to rival the competition for years to come. Sound like they won’t make another Xbox after Scorpio.

    • Michael

      Lol….no ps4pro is ps5. Sony just won’t admit it. They got crushed in the specs and they know they can’t do a thing about it.

    • Holeybartender

      Wrong. Since day one of the PS4’s launch Sony was asked what they were going to do about 4k when it came around and they replied that they were looking into it at the time. PS4 Pro was in development since launch and was never intended to be a next gen console. It was only meant as a mid-cycle console and has been denied as the PS5 since that time. People want to act like this mid-cycle upgrade is some new thing but in reality it’s been in development a long time. The moment a console releases the first thing anyone asks is when the is the next console going to be. People are impatient thus we have the “underpowered for 4k” PS4 Pro and Scorpio mid-cycle upgrade crap. You need 8 teraflops to do native 4k video and gaming,NEITHER consoles will achieve that until the next PS5 or Xbox Next is made.

    • Michael

      Last time I checked sony isn’t dominating anything. MS is worth 600 Billion and Sony is barely worth 20 billion. Now who is it that’s really Dominating? They can sell 300 million ps4s and they’ll never measure up the the financial success of ms. Sorry pony.

    • Rock Gnarly

      Yes, because the size of each company’s market capitalization is SO relevant in this conversation about game consoles. Your point? Shame they didn’t keep the phone division of Nokia open with all that money.

    • Michael

      Better to have money than to need it. Shame sony sold off all their assets…lol

    • Rock Gnarly

      Why does that concern anyone as long as we get games? Better tell Uncle Phil to beg for some more first-party software money since it seems to be an issue with his department.

    • Riggybro

      Don’t worry son, us PC gamers/users will continue to fund Microsoft’s failing business ventures outside of Windows as we have done since the first Xbox… think if it like a subsidy or benefit from your big daddies.

    • Holeybartender

      600,20 billion? That doesn’t mean spit? It’s billions! They both can buy and rebuy every console they released this gen.

    • Riggybro

      Your comment basically says that you would support Microsoft even if they made 95% of their earnings selling toothbrushes… because its Microsoft!
      I like Microsoft’s operating system, I like Sony’s console, I like Nintendo’s games but I don’t go around worshipping their CEO’s, their brand, defending their shareholders dividends etc…
      I mean… why would I? It’s a business not a sports team.

    • Michael

      You do what you can. Don’t worry about other people.

    • Dougdec92

      Seriously, you are as dumb as an xboxone degraded, we’re talking consoles here, not corporations as a whole, if so, Sony would have sold more devices per head than Ms software. Pls console your console with the fact that Xbox live figures are what consoles you…or you want to be consoled by the fact that game software for game devs are installed on windows PCs which is MS but they don’t have great games as Sony?, talk about a big corp with their multi billion dollar os being a slave to a poor Sony pony…lol

    • crazy_black_man-

      He brags that MS has all these resources but he STILL can’t justify them getting curb stomped by Sony’s gaming division year after year.

  • Holeybartender

    The last time Microsoft reported sales figures was when they and Sony hit 10 million together,then Sony outsold them by a 3:1 ratio.That shut them up and they started combining sales with 360 sales to hide how far they lagged behind to keep the public from viewing them as the inferior console. Can’t have them all jumping ship,can we? Which is exactly the thought behind them when they “announced” they were no longer going to release sales and focus on Xbox Live figures instead.

    26 million is about right and is still anyone’s guess what Scorpio will even do to add to the total. If your going by Sony’s idea of how many PS4 Pro will net them you can’t imagine it will be by much,given the 4k market and everything. If the Scorpio is another $500 Xbox they are DONE this gen,if they aren’t already.

  • Riggybro

    Well done Microsoft.

    You have surpassed the original Xbox sales. Just.

  • Cenk Algu

    I am an Analyst. I say XO Sold over 40m,did you believe me? Sorry but no one knows what the Number realy is but for sure it is more than 30m because doing better than 360 which was 28.5m in the Same Life time.

    • Riggybro

      No one knows what the numbers are.

      So you saying they could be a lot less than 26 million??

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL. Hilariousness!

    • Cenk Algu

      How r you doing Mr.Rat?

    • crazy_black_man-

      Better than you, Mr. Cheese.

    • Cenk Algu

      No Troll no. 360 was at 28.5m n MS says XO selling much better than 360 now Use your brain.

    • Riggybro

      I used my brain as you advised.

      It appears MS have made comments such as “outselling 360 for the same sales period” but I couldn’t find anything about outselling 360 in total sales.

      Thank you for your guidance.

    • Cenk Algu

      You are obviously a Troll nothing more.

    • Dougdec92

      I love your comebacks bro

    • Mr Xrat

      It’s doing worse than the 360 and PS3 at this point in their lifecycles, Kronk.

    • Cenk Algu

      Hey little Rat wäre id your proof?

    • Mr Xrat
  • The truth-ier

    This is suppose to be a news site, did you reach out to microsoft, or do more poor reporting.

  • Corey

    xbox stopped giving numbers at 13m. sony was destroying the too hard

    • crazy_black_man-

      Its the funniest damn thing too. Its almost as funny as those home videos of people falling off ladders.

  • Corey

    the scorpio has no chance.

    Sony just has that brand name and respect from the ps1 and 2 days. Even the ps3 was behind almost he whole generation because of the price tag and the year delay BUT in the end ended up selling more than the 360.

    The thing is its all about affordability and exclusives, it feels like xbox is doing the same mistake they did when they released xbone. It cost more than ps4 did at the time. PS4 is really starting to remind me of the PS2 era where they just got exclusive after exclusive.

    sony is diverse and when you but their console you know that you will have a game you love. Xbone doesnt have that.

    • Luke Skywalker

      RRoD happened, let’s not forget that even though Microsoft did get over after 5 years it still had a huge impact even in the years after that. And let’s also take into consideration the extremely horrible launch the Xbox one had. The ps3 or ps4 simply didn’t sell well only on their own merits, what I’m saying is that it’s not as if Sony did some grandiose things the consoles. So let’s not start saying this or that, let’s just enjoy our consoles because they’re great in their own ways and have games that you’ll love and enjoy.

      Don’t forget the simple fact that gaming choice is subjective, you might love a game but I hate it.

    • Corey

      exactly, and thats why sony is destroying ms in the exclusive department. sony has a diverse selection of games, there is a game for everyone.

    • Luke Skywalker

      Exclusive department? Microsoft released as much exclusives as Sony, the only part they fall short are jrpg games and we know how the Japanese market and developers treat Microsoft already. So let’s not act as if Sony is pumping out exclusives. If you look on the uk top 40 chart of the week any week for months now you will see that Microsoft consistently have at least 7 games on there while Sony has 4 or less.

      Anyway, as I was saying, Sony definitely have the jrpg devs and market in their pocket but I’m not a jrpg guy, I can’t pay those cookie cutter nonsense, they’re rarely unique, they are literally 1 of 2 types either a hack-n-slash or beat-em-up give or take a few. There are people who like those kinds of games but not me and I’m sure there are many more like me.

      So just to prove a point….I’ve been playing this game for a while now, it’s an open world racing game does the ps4 have something like that? No? Hmm, doesn’t seem like it really has a game for everyone…

    • crazy_black_man-

      Do you mean open world as in the game is so lame that the cars float exactly the same like a hovercraft across moving landscapes with no sense of physics involved? Is that the same racing game that only gets a fresh coat of paint every year like Call of Duty, and is it exclusive to Xbox, and made by Turn 10?
      Dang, I have no idea what game that is, but I saw it running in a kiosk at Gamestop, I had no desire to pick up the controller to test it out, and I walked right past it. Lame.

    • Tomaterrrx

      Someone’s salty. Horizon 3 is the highest rated racing game since… well… Forza Motorsport.

    • crazy_black_man-

      So in your BS response, youre going to ignore the Netflix paywall, and the 360 peripherals that cost a small fortune like those tiny little proprietary 20gb Xbox 360 harddrives and how MS had a reputation for bleeding gamers dry. You’re a fool if you thought anyone forgot who Microsoft really is, and why they are in the resulting position they’re in.

    • Phil Williams

      Also, the PS3 launched a full year AFTER the 360, which is why it was behind in sales.

  • Mr Xrat

    Nah, it’s 40 million, CrapGamer told me so.

    • Game of Trolls

      And Fox said PS4 has sold 85 million

  • kee1haul

    This is all guess work. It’s going to be way more than that since they outsold PS4 for half of 2016.

    • Mason Rieber

      Don’t tell them facts. The console that sold more during the busy season is stagnating. Makes sense to “that kind” of person

    • crazy_black_man-

      In North America only. You guys are probably just numb from all the constant bad news.

    • kee1haul

      A sensible admission for once.

  • Mason Rieber

    Anyone else confused about these clearly false numbers? This same company overstated ps4s numbers by 2m and Sony gives out console numbers…. So already favoring sony. I’m not sure what Sony’s numbers were at at the beginning of 2016 but the FACTS state xbox one overall sold more than sony in the second half of the year in key markets, which is the busy season… So how has sony sold so many and xbox is stagnating given the current FACTS and not guesses?

    • crazy_black_man-

      Those Xbox numbers were just in North America, son. Get a clue, or a handy dandy notebook, or just use Google.

    • Mason Rieber

      You’re a special kind of stupid “son”. The market that probably holds near half console sales monthly the ps4 lost in. Not to mention results are similarly neck and neck in the UK, the two biggest markets for consoles…. You are so stupid I almost feel bad for you, almost

    • crazy_black_man-

      “The market that probably holds near half console sales monthly the ps4 lost in.”

      The typical ramblings of an idiot on the defensive. You’re definitely confused alright.

    • Mason Rieber

      You know you’ve lost when you quote the previous person and then quite literally prove what you’ve typed out as your “reply” as you type it…. (hint: your reply was exactly what YOU did hahahahahahahahahah)

    • crazy_black_man-

      I can’t even understand what you’re saying son. Do yourself a solid favor. Don’t write like you talk. Construct your sentences to make some type of coherent sense to the average reader, and by all means, please spit out the chew if you’re going to continue writing this way.

  • Mr Xrat

    Thanks for proving you can’t read a graph, Olger.
