Microsoft announced this morning that their new generation Xbox One console has surpassed the 2 million mark for global sales, 18 days after the console launched in 13 markets on November 22. Note that this figure is for "sell-throughs", meaning to the actual customer and not shipments.

"We continue to be humbled and overwhelmed by the positive response from our fans," Xbox Corporate VP of Strategy and Marketing Yusuf Mehdi said in a statement. "We are thrilled to see sales of Xbox One on a record-setting pace, with over 2 million Xbox One consoles in homes around the world.

"Demand is exceeding supply in our 13 launch markets and Xbox One is sold out at most retailers. We're also particularly excited to see consumers engaging in a wide range of games and entertainment experiences on the platform, with more than 1 million paid transactions on Xbox Live to date."

Microsoft has rattled off a number of statistics to help show how big of a number 2 million consoles is, including over 83 million hours in games, TV and apps on the Xbox One. Interestingly this number also indicates that the company aren't that far behind Sony's PlayStation 4, which previously hit its 2 million milestone - specifically 2.1 million - last week, though in significantly more countries.

It's a whole lot of fun! Forgetting the old school console (Sega, SNES, N64, etc) I had an original Xbox, Wii, WiiU and now the XboxOne. It's by far the most fun I've had gaming for a while now (Forza5 mostly), but unlike Khel I won't sell out and will keep playing BF4 on my PC.

I tried out Skype for the first time this morning for a work call and it was awesome. The camera zoomed then followed me around the room if I moved about which was pretty impressive. Quality of the video/voice over my shitty 5mbps DSL line wasn't too shabby either.

All XBox vs PS4 shit aside, its just good to see them both coming out the gate strong and selling well, should mean solid support for them both and plenty of stuff to play on the horizon.

But yeah, I'm loving mine too, even if I did sell out a little. I'm getting better at hiding the shame though.
