Microsoft ships 1.2 million Xbox One in the first quarter

Microsoft has confirmed that it has shipped 2 million consoles in the first quarter of 2014, with 1.2 million of them being the new Xbox One and the rest being the previous generation Xbox 360 consoles.

The 2 million figure is the number of consoles Microsoft sold to retailers and not actual consoles sold to customers. Recently, we saw both Sony and Microsoft announcing their console sales figure since launch, with Microsoft boasting 5 million sales for the Xbox One and Sony counting 7 million actual customers.

Sony has so far had a lead ahead of Microsoft in terms of sales so it’s likely when the time comes for Sony to announce it’s own sales figure we’ll see a number higher than 1.2 million or the last quarter.
