Late evening last Thursday night, gamers began to line-up at electronic and retails stores around the country to be the first to get their hands on the all new XBOX ONE console.

Not to be outdone by Playstation 4’s successful launch the week prior, Microsoft says they sold over 1 million units¬†worldwide within the first 24 hours of launch.

Microsoft vice president of marketing Yusuf Mehdi has this to say of the launch:

We are humbled and grateful for the excitement of Xbox fans around the world.

Seeing thousands of excited fans lined up to get their Xbox One and their love for gaming was truly a special moment for everyone on the Xbox team.

Most stores have since been sold out of the new console and Medhi says more are coming:

We are working hard to create more Xbox One consoles.

You don’t have to worry about standing in line in the cold to get your hands on one though. We are giving away an XBOX ONE just in time for the holidays! Sign up to become a ROCK-A-HOLIC, if you aren’t one already, for a chance to win!
