To absolutely no one’s surprise, sales of Microsoft’s Xbox One have indeed improved since the cheaper Kinect-less option became available. At least, that’s according to “internal data based on retail calendar and sold-through numbers,” whatever the hell that means.
Since the new Xbox One offering launched on June 9th, we’ve seen sales of Xbox One more than double in the US, compared to sales in May, and solid growth in Xbox 360 sales.
Up until now Xbox One sales have been disappointing, with Sony’s PlayStation 4 dominating the next-gen console market both within the U.S. and worldwide. Things should even out now that the Xbox One and PS4 are the same price ($399).
Still, Microsoft has some catching up to do.
