Microsoft hasn’t reported Xbox One sales statistics for quite some time, and that didn’t change with today’s quarterly earnings report.
The company noted that it sold 1.1 million Xbox consoles to retailers worldwide in the past three months — that’s counting both Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles. It’s unclear how many were actually sold to consumers.
Even with the Xbox One launching this past November, Microsoft only sold 100,000 more Xbox consoles compared to the same time period last year (when just the Xbox 360 was available).
In Microsoft’s previous financial quarter, it reported 3.2 million Xbox consoles sold, including 1.2 million Xbox One devices. In March 2014, the final month of that quarter, it sold 311,000 Xbox One’s to retailers.
The last official number from Microsoft came in May, when the company noted more than 5 million Xbox One’s shipped to retailers worldwide. That was more than 2 million behind Sony, which reported more than 7 million PlayStation 4’s sold to consumers — not just retailers — worldwide.
In addition, the PS4 has outsold the Xbox One in the U.S. for the past six months. That includes June, despite the fact that Microsoft doubled its Xbox One sales last month after it began selling a $399 version of the Xbox One without the Kinect sensor on June 9 — a $100 price cut from the Xbox One with Kinect.
Microsoft’s Computing and Gaming Hardware division posted $1.44 billion in revenue today for the June quarter, up from $1.17 billion in the same quarter last year.
