US Xbox One Sales "More Than Double" After Kinect Stripped From Bundles
Posted by Ken Barnes
Good news abound!
Microsoft is claiming that since they stripped the Kinect sensor from the Xbox One in the US on June 9th, sales of the console are "more than double" what they were in May, with growth continuing in the Xbox 360 sector as well.
The company isn't issuing any hard numbers, but the claim is based on internal data regarding "sold through" numbers, as opposed to the more common practice of reporting based on the number of systems that are shipped to retail outlets which may still be cluttering up a Target or Gamestop warehouse somewhere, rather than being sat under a customer's television.
We're not expecting to see the system overtake the PlayStation 4 just yet when the official NPD monthly data is announced, but the month-to-month race should at least be a bit closer than it was....we hope.
