Tomahawk, WI 12/03/2013 (BasicsMedia) – Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has just announced the release of its latest gaming solution, Xbox One. Thus far, the trend appears to back what has been happening whenever new  gaming consoles are released, regardless of whether the company in question is Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) or another one. The first day after launching such products, the sales figures are quite impressive, presumably because of the craving people have for new things, and the fact that users love being the first to get their hands on such products. Afterwards, there is nothing exciting with the sales.

Sales Figures for Xbox One Follow a Familiar Trend

From the figures released thus far, it is clear that the majority of the orders that Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) served on the first day after releasing Xbox One, were those made as preorders by clients across the U.S. The company issued a statement later where it said that it successfully sold around 1 million gaming consoles during the first 24 hours after the launch. This follows a familiar trend as other gaming consoles such as PlayStation 4, which Sony says sold around 1 million units during its first 24 hours after it was launched. The question is; must 1 million units be sold all the time?

One reason that has been given for the 1 million gaming consoles being sold in the first 24 hours of each product’s release, has to do with the companies in question. It seems as if makers of these gaming consoles produce not more than a million units. Why do they do this? It is because they base this amount entirely upon the preorders they receive from their clients. It is expensive for these companies to make more than 1 million units, only for them to end up on shelves since nobody is buying them. Consequently, people dash to be among the first to buy Xbox One.

Getting Xbox One in Stores Will be Difficult During the Holiday Season

Currently, it seems as if you cannot get any Xbox One gaming console at any store. The units that were preordered have all been sold, and anyone interested in buying this new product will have to wait until the next batch leaves the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) factory. During the upcoming holiday season, expect more lovers of gaming consoles, especially those who had been looking forward to adding Xbox One to their collection, to spend more time searching for it across a number of stores. Once again, this follows what has become a familiar trend after launching new consoles.

There are reports to the effect that the first a million Xbox One gaming consoles that Microsoft released into the market, carry a number of technical glitches. If you look at the reviews of Xbox One on Amazon.com, you will notice that this latest gaming console from Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) only boasts of a rating of one star. The biggest complain by buyers of the first one million units of Xbox One appear to heavily hinge on its faulty disc drives. Unless this is resolved quickly, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) may lose more customers hence encountering loss of revenue, something it does not need at this time.
