Since Microsoft launch of the Xbox One just more than two weeks ago the next-gen console has sold-through more than 2 million units at a clip of 111,111 per day, according to a report today from VG 24/7.

Microsoft’s announcement comes just more than a week after Sony made known via the PlayStation Blog that they had eclipsed the 2 million mark in sales of the PS4.

Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft corporate vice president of strategy and marketing for Xbox, said the platform holder was “humbled and overwhelmed by the positive response.”

“We are thrilled to see sales of Xbox One on a record-setting pace, with over 2 million Xbox One consoles in homes around the world,” Mehdi said.

According to Mehdi, the Xbox One demand is exceeding supply in the 13 launch markets, including the United States, and is sold out at most retailers.

“We’re also particularly excited to see consumers engaging in a wide range of games and entertainment experiences on the platform, with more than 1 million paid transactions on Xbox Live to date,” Mehdi said.

Since the launch, Microsoft announced, Xbox One users have spent 83 million hours playing games, using apps and watching TV with the next-gen console. Some 39 million Achievements have been unlocked and 595 million Gamerscore points have been earned.

Figures from the NPD Group drop tomorrow, and one analyst believes that the PlayStation 4 will have sold roughly 500,000 more units than the Xbox One since mid-November.
