Trending: ‘It was awesome’: After Boeing’s 777X jet finishes its first flight, test pilots give the first review

xboxonenokinectOffering up a cheaper Xbox One is helping Microsoft sell quite a bit more consoles.

The company announced today that since 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 — sales doubled in one month.

We’ll have more details about how Xbox One sales compare to that of Sony’s PlayStation 4 when the NPD Group releases its monthly data from June on Thursday.

The Xbox One still trails the $399 PS4 in worldwide sales, while Sony’s console has held a sales lead in the U.S. for the past five months.
