Microsoft sends word that they sold more than 2 million Xbox One consoles in the first 18 days. That's an average of 111,111 units sold a day -- a record for them. 

The Xbox One is sold out at most retailers, they say. Amazon's John Love, director of videogames, said that customers were ordering over 1,000 units per minute. Wowzers.

Here are some fun launch stats that Microsoft has calculated since launch:

  • 83 million hours spent on console so far
  • 39 million achievements unlocked
  • over 595 million total Gamerscore achieved

Microsoft says that they're working hard to meet consumer demand for the holiday season.
