XBox matches PS4 launch sales with just over 1 million -
Microsoft has announced it has sold more than 1 million Xbox One consoles worldwide on the first day of launch. While this figure far surpasses any previous-generation Xbox model, it still trails the PS4 despite having similar sales numbers. Here’s why. The Xbox One was released in over 13 countries while the PS4 was only released in North America. The PS4 has also faced obstacles for their launch in Brazil — one of the countries with the highest demand for the console. But due to heavy taxes on imported electronics a launch in the South American country has been delayed. While the numbers seemed to match evenly in terms of sales, it is likely Sony will come on on top in the long run after releasing the PS4 worldwide.
