Microsoft says that combined, Xbox consoles sold 2.27 million units, good for 47 percent software market share. The company adds that Xbox One owners are purchasing an average of 2.7 games per new Xbox One console, a very decent rate.
Reads the press release:
During the month of January, Xbox* held five of the top 10 spots on the console game title list in the U.S.: "Battlefield 4," "Call of Duty: Ghosts" (Xbox 360 and Xbox One), "Grand Theft Auto V" and "Minecraft." Gamers love Xbox and our community has never been more vibrant on the industry-leading Xbox Live service. Since launch, over 2.6 billion global Gamerscore has been achieved, 165 million global achievements have been unlocked and 130 million global Game DVR clips have been uploaded.
We're just getting started. Our team couldn't be more excited for the upcoming launch of "Titanfall," which is exclusive to Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. Recently called the "most important game in years," a "game changer" and "system seller," "Titanfall" has been heralded for its "spectacular action," termed a "ridiculously good looking game," and the "most exciting shooter in years." For people who haven't purchased Xbox One, we believe "Titanfall" will be the energizer to launch a new generation of gameplay.
Additionally, the software giant says "we've seen over 740 million hours of fun on Xbox One across games, apps, and TV" and "people are seeing the benefit of Kinect, with over 685 million speech commands used to navigate Xbox One, including 20 million commands of "Xbox, Record That" alone."
