Microsoft has officially announced some solid numbers for the Xbox One, following its launch late last month.

According to Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb, the console has managed to sell 2 million units across 13 markets, since its launch on November 22. Hyrb also revealed that players have spent over 83 million hours in games, TV, and apps on Xbox One. Since the console launched 39 million Achievements have been unlocked, for a total of 595 million Gamerscore.

At peak demand, customers were ordering the Xbox One at over 1000 units per minute on Amazon.com, according to Hyrb.

As of December 1 the PlayStation 4 had sold 2.1 million units worldwide, according to Sony. The console launched November 15 in North America and November 29 in Europe.

Microsoft released a new system software update for the Xbox One earlier today, which offers a fix for SmartGlass compatibility when coming out of standby mode, multiplayer issues when rejoining games, inconsistant notifications, and dashboard performance issues.
