Microsoft Sees Xbox Sales Double

on Wednesday, Jul. 16th

For month after month this year Microsoft’s Xbox One console has had the stuffing beat out of it in the sales race by Sony’s PlayStation 4. That could all change with the set of sales data from June, because Microsoft has rushed to let the gaming and tech press know that it sold twice the number of Xbox One consoles last month than it did in May.

This comes on the heels of a $100 price drop for the machine which is now unbundled from the Kinect sensor which pretty much defined the original vision for the Xbox One user experience. Now with a stripped down device and what was widely seen as a solid, if not spectacular, showing at the Electronic Entertainment Expo we might actually have a real Console War on our hands for Christmas.

We’ll all have a better idea of if this is a real fight or not based on which company does the most crowing when the NPD report for June hits tomorrow.
