The company launched Xbox Series X/S pre-orders on September 22, around the same time preview units started being distributed to press and influencers.
Speaking during Microsoft’s first quarter earnings call on Tuesday, CEO Satya Nadella said: “We are delighted by early reviews and excitement in the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X, which will be the most affordable and the most powerful consoles available.”
Microsoft has said it plans to make more Xbox Series X/S consoles available on launch day after “record-breaking” demand for the next-gen systems.
The first unofficial Xbox Series X unboxing video was published earlier this month, showing players what to expect when they get their hands on retail units in two weeks.
A second unofficial Xbox Series X unboxing video was published last week, while Xbox Series X/S consoles have been pictured starting to arrive at Target stores in the US.
Microsoft recently revealed the Xbox Series X/S software launch line-up, including 20 games supporting Smart Delivery, which lets players buy a title once and play it across current and next-gen consoles.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer expects Xbox Series S to outsell Xbox Series X over the course of the generation, and has suggested Microsoft has already begun working on future Xbox Series console iterations.
