Microsoft: Xbox One sold out at retailers across the world

Sony announced Tuesday that the Playstation 4 sold 2.1 million units worldwide following the console's launch in Europe last. Microsoft followed up with a statement today but did not provide any hard numbers.

Microsoft's Xbox VP Yusuf Mehdi told Ars Technica that the Xbox One is "seeing record breaking sales and [we] are selling every Xbox One we can make. Demand is far exceeding supply in the 13 countries we’ve launched and we are sold out at retailers around the world."

The company announced that the console sold more than 1 million units during its launch on Nov. 22 but this is the first update it has provided on sales for the Xbox One since then. An Infoscout report suggests that Microsoft's console beat out the PS4 on Black Friday, at least at Walmart and Target. However, this was at the same time that the PS4 was launching in Europe which indicates that sales of the console was constrained by supply during the busiest shopping period of the year.
