Today Microsoft has announced over 3 million Xbox One units were sold before the end of 2013. It’s worth noting 1 million units were sold in the first 24 hours of its release.

“Together, we ushered in a new era of games and entertainment with Xbox One,” said Xbox Corporate VP of Marketing, Strategy and Business Yusuf Mehdi. “Over 3 million Xbox One consoles were sold to consumers in 13 countries before the end of 2013. It’s been incredible to see Xbox One selling at a record-setting pace for Xbox, and we were honored to see Xbox One become the fastest-selling console in the U.S. during our launch month in November. Since our launch, demand for Xbox One has been strong, selling out throughout the holidays at most retailers worldwide. We are continuing to work hard to deliver additional consoles to retailers as fast as possible.”

Microsoft’s Director of Programming for Xbox Live, Larry Hryb aka Major Nelson, wasted no time taking the announcement to Twitter.

Congratulations on a successful launch and here’s to another great year of gaming. Are you one of the three million gamers out there with a shiny new black box in your home?
