The head of Xbox Phil Spencer told about the results of the first 24 hours.
Thank you for supporting the largest launch in Xbox history. In 24 hrs more new consoles sold, in more countries, than ever before. We’re working with retail to resupply as quickly as possible. You continue to show us the connective power of play is more important than ever.

Thank you for supporting the biggest launch in Xbox history. More consoles were sold in more countries in 24 hours than ever before. We are working with retail chains to ensure that new lots appear as soon as possible. You continue to show us that the unifying power of play is more important than ever.
Microsoft previously said that demand for Xbox Series pre-orders was also a record for the company, but there is no exact data yet.
One way or another, all consignments of consoles will be sold out in the near future, given that not everyone has received them yet. So, a number of those who pre-ordered on Amazon may even wait until the end of December.
Xbox Series went on sale worldwide on November 10th.
