Xbox One has sold 35 million

Xbox One has sold 35 million

Shortly after Xbox One was released, Microsoft started sharing sales number when it was obvious PlayStation 4 was doing better.

Another interesting point is that, apparently, Xbox One X, the updated version and most powerful console of Microsoft, would have overtaken PlayStation 4 Pro in the U.S. market when both releases were aligned. "In the U.S., when launch aligned, yes". Apart from the Chromecast, Google also shows sincerity in continuously developing the Daydream platform for its virtual reality contents, which can soon become a good complement to its rumored Yeti service and gaming devices.

Microsoft stopped publishing its hardware sales numbers in 2015, indicating that it would focus on Xbox Live subscriptions and the number of active monthly users as its primary action to measure its success. Microsoft's 10 million figure from back in November 2014 is the latest official sales number for the console, although EA accidentally mentioned around 18 to 19 million sold units during an earnings call in January 2016.

Speaking of the console generation, Final Fantasy 15 director, Hajime Tabata has revealed that the next Xbox and PS5 will be cloud-based consoles.

According to Tabata, the game consoles will evolve and follow the steps of the film and music industry which has embraced the streaming services. Also, this is just a speculation as the real decision is in the hands of the console manufacturers. However, Microsoft requires you to download the games in full to your console instead of streaming.
