NEW YORK —

Microsoft says more than 2 million of its Xbox One consoles have been sold since the system's launch 18 days ago.

That works out to an average of 111,111 units per day. And company officials say users have spent over 83 million hours with the games, TV, and apps on Xbox One since the Nov. 22 launch.

Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of strategy and marketing for Xbox, says demand is exceeding supply in the 13 launch markets, with Xbox One sold out at most retailers.

Its makers want the Xbox One to become a user's main entertainment hub. It supplies a program guide for browsing what's on TV and what's highlighted in apps such as Netflix and Amazon. You can listen to music, view photos and make Skype video calls.
