Malmö, Sweden – Microsoft just sent word that its Xbox One console was the top-selling console in both November and December in the US. And “weekly average sales during these months outpaced Xbox 360 by 50 percent at the same point in its life-cycle,” the company noted.
To celebrate the holiday sales success, Microsoft said that it’s introducing a $349 price point starting on Friday – although in reality, it’s actually a continuation of the holiday pricing that helped the company get the sales lift.
In addition to the hardware sales (exact figures weren’t provided), Microsoft commented that “Xbox One sold more games throughout November and December in the U.S. than any other current-generation platform.
Next-gen hardware was big overall in 2014. The NPD Group will be sending over dollar sales for the year soon.
