Microsoft has recently announced on Xbox Wire that its sales for the Xbox One have “more than doubled” in early June compared to sales in May. This is just Microsoft’s own internal data though and only accounts for the United States but it’s significant news considering the PS4’s lead in the console war.

In early June, Microsoft began to sell Xbox One units without the motion camera Kinect for $100 less. This price drop was praised all around, though Microsoft said it would look into selling Kinect separately this Fall. At the very least, it seems to have worked for Microsoft in one territory. All that’s left is to wait on the official numbers from other countries.

The Xbox One also has a better line-up this Holiday season with Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark and much more incoming. What are your thoughts on the Xbox One’s recent sales? Let us know below.

    I am 95% sure XBOne outsold PS4 in the US in June but the worldwide gap continues to increase. The rest of 2014 Xbox will be catching up, because of stronger games
    Project Spark vs LBP3
    Forza Horizon 2 vs Driveclub
    Sunset Overdrive vs …
    Halo 5 beta vs …
    Fable Legends vs …
    But 2015 will be a year of Playstation because Microsoft showed NEARLY EVERYTHING it had, while we haven’t heard from Sony’s first party and second party studious. Expect a megaton from Sony at Gamescom and at TGS.

      PS4 has Uncharted 4 and Xbox One has Halo 5 for 2015, so why would 2015 be the year for the PS4?

    • Антон Иванов

      It’s just my opinion. Cloud and DX 12 may somehow help boost XOnes’s performance but not in the upcoming year.
      All multiplatform titles look better and run better on PS4 and there are already more players on PS4.
      Bloodborne vs Quantum Break
      The Order 1886 vs Crackdown or Phantom Dust (don’t know much about these games)
      Everybody’s gone to the Rapture
      Deep Down
      Media Molecule, Guerrilla Games, Quantic Dream, Polyphony Digital, Sony Santa Monica are developing AAA titles (confirmed in some kind and form)
      .
      .
      Microsoft had to show off only games at E3 so I don’t think they’ve got a lot games left.
      The Last Guardian may be shown during TGS this or next year.
      PS: ITS JUST MY OPINION that the gap between PS4 and XBoxOne will continue to increase.

      The Last Guardian is vaporware the game will never release,the fact is Sony doesn’t have much games in development they’re depending on third-party timed exclusive content

      “The Last Guardian will never release” – just your opinion. While Shu Yoshida said the game IS IN DEVELOPMENT. And he also said that if they wanted to cancel it, the game would have already been cancelled. The fact is Sony doesn’t have 1000 AAA games in development, but they are less dependent on third parties than Microsoft.
      Look: Sunset Overdrive is made by Insomniac Games (3rd party)
      The most anticipated XBox One game – Quantum Break – Is from Remedy (3rd party).
      Sony has a lot more first party studious with much better pedigree (Gran Tourismo, Little Big Planet, Uncharted Golden Abyss, ICO, Shadow of the Colossus)

      Plus, Skyrim was completely broken on PS3 so it may be possible that Fallout 4 will be a timed exclusive for PS4

    • demfax

      Fallout 4 won’t be a timed exclusive for either console. Maybe timed exclusive content or DLC.

    • demfax

      PS4 outsold Xbox One in June NPD.

  • HisDivineOrder

    You forgot the free $75 offer Microsoft was adding on top of the $399 price point. 😉

    Even still, they refuse to publish hard numbers to tell us how many “more than doubled” actually means.

    If they went from 2 to 5, then that’s hardly anything to crow about. We’ve seen this song and dance from Nintendo before with the Wii U last year.

    If there’s nothing to hide and the numbers are great, then Microsoft should be telling us just how many units they actually sold instead of tossing out vague comparison points between undisclosed sales numbers.
