Xbox One console sales doubled in the U.S. during the month of June compared to May, Microsoft said today. The increase in sales is attributed to the release of the new $399 Xbox One model that is available without the Kinect camera add-on.


Microsoft did not specify just how many Xbox One systems were sold during the month.
