Xbox One Sales Up Year Over Year, Even As Revenue Falls

Xbox One sales continue to outpace Xbox 360 sales.

Microsoft have confirmed that Xbox One sales are actually up year over year, contrary to predictions of sales of the troubled console slowing down- this is in spite of Microsoft’s admission that revenue from Xbox is down year on year. Microsoft explained that the contradiction was explained by lower Xbox 360 sales this year than last year, as well as Xbox One sales at lower price points.

That’s not all, either- it just seems to have been good news for Xbox all around. According to Microsoft, Xbox Live grew 26% year-over-year compared to Q3 FY2015. The company said the increase was “driven by the growth of Xbox One and Windows 10,” which validates their decision to pursue a cross platform synergetic strategy across Windows 10 and Xbox One.

Microsoft also confirmed that for now, Xbox One sales continue to outpace Xbox 360 sales in both “reach and engagement.” Although at this point, I find myself asking just why they won’t share the numbers already.

Oh well. They’re doing well, and in the end, that’s what matters.
