Microsoft says it has sold more than 2 million Xbox One consoles since its launch 18 days ago. The sales figures average out to around 111,111 units per day, a pace that Microsoft describes as “record-setting.” While the company countered Sony’s 2.1 million PlayStation 4 sales with zombie stats previously, it’s clear both consoles are selling well. “Demand is exceeding supply in our 13 launch markets and Xbox One is sold out at most retailers,” says Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi.

Sony has sold more than 2.1 million PlayStation 4s across the US, Europe, and Australia up to December 1st. While Sony’s console launched a week before the Xbox One, it was limited to the US and Canada for the first 14 days of sales and Sony’s most recent figures only include two days of availability across Europe and Australasia. Comparatively, the PS4 sold more than 2.1 million units in 16 days, while the Xbox One hit 2 million in 18 days. The PS4 is currently sold in 32 countries, and the Xbox One has only launched in 13 markets. While Microsoft is updating its Xbox One sales figures, the company also delivered its first Xbox One system update today, addressing several issues with SmartGlass and notifications, as well as improvements to the dashboard performance and TV features.
