Microsoft's Yusuf Mehdi states...

"We are humbled and gratified by the overwhelming response from our fans to the launch of the Xbox One. Eleven days in we are seeing record-breaking sales and are selling every Xbox One we can make,"

Microsoft has not released an updated sale figure for the Xbox One, but they did release some new statistics that are relevant to the device.

My Thoughts

Starting with the PS4 article...

Good Sony.....now please send more stock to Hemet retail stores so I can buy the PS4!!!!

2.1 MILLION UNITS!!!

No wonder I can't buy the console here, everyone else is buying it!!!

No one can argue that Sony lost the PR battle, they clearly did. Gamers really liked Sony's advertisement for the PS4.

As for the second article...

I don't mean to be a jerk about this, but I can't help but think that the reason for the "unprecedented demand" is because so many people hated the Xbox One and Microsoft for the way they were advertising  the console; they were surprised people actually still wanted the console.

I kid Microsoft though. No, it's probably  because they have never had a demand this high for their past consoles.

Seems like both consoles for Sony and Microsoft are very popular with gamers today.

I hope everyone who actually own one is enjoying them, as to the people like me who haven't had the opportunity to buy the consoles.

Don't worry, we'll get one soon.

Thanks for reading.
