The Xbox One has reached three million homes in less than two months, those are the new numbers coming in from Yusuf Mehdi, Xbox marketing vice president. The adoption rate of the console has surpassed both its predecessors when you factor in the short amount of time it has on the market. The sales numbers are all the more impressive when the gaming library had very few bright spots and no killer app. This is however indicative of the video game industry in general, new hardware promotes better sales.

"If you look back at the Xbox 360's launch, what it was in 2005 when it launched is completely different from what it is now. It's fascinating to see the different things that have come along. Things iterated. We didn't even have things like the party system or the ability to support external storage when we launched the Xbox 360. So we are absolutely committed to adding new features to the Xbox One over the course of its life span."- Microsoft director of programming for Xbox Live Larry Hryb

Microsoft has now confirmed its total standing of 3 million units for the Xbox One, while Sony’s PS4 has sold 2.1 million units since mid-December of last year.

The more interesting aspect of these sales is when compared to Nintendo, whose flailing Wii U platform has only sold 4 million units worldwide and it’s been on the market for over a year now.
