Microsoft slams claims of poor Xbox One sales as "inaccurate" – still refuses to admit how many it's sold

Just how inaccurate is "inaccurate"?

After yesterday's news that the Xbox One was lagging behind PS4 sales by more than 40 million units (which you can read below), Microsoft has provided us with a statement on the matter denying such claims as "inaccurate".

“The projections are inaccurate," a Microsoft spokesperson said. "Regardless, we are focused on delivering amazing gaming experiences to players on all devices and engagement is our measure of progress."

Microsoft's response dodges the question of just how many Xbox One consoles it's sold, but that's not too surprising as it's something the company hasn't disclosed for years. Interestingly, it doesn't give us any estimation on just how "inaccurate" the sales projections were. We already knew we were working in rough figures, but claiming these estimations as inaccurate could be a case of a few hundred consoles or a few million.

Either way, Microsoft doesn't seem too worried as its install base is still growing, with Microsoft's spokesperson explaining that "we just announced a record start to the year with Xbox Live monthly active users up 13% to 59 million."
