For most, 24 hours is enough time for us to work 10 hours at work, have 3 meals, watch 4 episodes of ”24″ on Netflix, get about 2 hours of gaming in and sleep 8 hours… In 24 hours at Microsoft, the company has time to accomplish all that while at the same time, also make history! Following a worldwide celebration, Xbox One launched in 13 markets on Nov. 22 to great fanfare. The team is excited to confirm the launch of Xbox One was the biggest launch in Xbox history, with more than one million consoles sold through worldwide in less than 24 hours – surpassing day one Xbox 360 sales and setting a new record for Microsoft.
