Nov. 22 (Bloomberg) - Bloomberg’s Matt Miller recaps the midnight launch of Microsoft’s Xbox One as fans lined up to become the first to own the new console. He speaks on Bloomberg Television’s “Bloomberg Surveillance.”

Done a television shot from a lazy boy.

The lines were big and plentiful, but they sold from midnight to 4:00 a.m. most of the kids that waited overnight for the new xbox one console have already gone home and the people here at best buy told me microsoft has been much better at meeting demand ban playstation -- than playstation.

They sold out of those.

We still have a couple of xbox ones left.

It is a huge chunk of revenue that microsoft makes.

I think $1.6 billion in the last quarter.

A lot of people are calling for whoever is the next ceo of microsoft to sell off this unit.

Microsoft seems loyal to xbox one now, but what about the actual consumer when you could together the ps4 and the xbox one?

-- when you pit together the ps4 and xbox one?

They each sold about 80 million apiece.

They are neck and neck as far as who is coming out on top.

Loyalty can only be compared to something like ford and chevy.

Once you are a microsoft guy, you're a microsoft guy, or girl.

40% of xbox sales are two women.

Once you are a ps3 worsen, you are a -- person, you are a ps3 person.

It is hard to switch them.

Which game is better?

Which should i buy?

The microsoft or the sony product?

For you, tom, you have to buy the sony ps4. each one of these wants to be a part of your living room.

They want to be more than just a game.

They sell your music, videos, movies, but the xbox comes with espn and nfl.

I assume you do not care about that as much as hockey.

The ps4 comes with nhl and nba.

Now you're talking our language.

Matt miller joining us live from the best buy in new york.

You watch the hockey on the console.

You see live hockey.

You watch the bruins play the rangers on this.

Go rangers.

My last word on it.

Thank you for joining us.

Do we care about this stuff?

Is this ancient technology?

It is very contemporary technology.

It is an ancient concept, but it continues to be viable.

It is more than a box.

Microsoft has this xbox live service in the background that is a key part of why it works.

They will never get rid of that, even if they were to sell off the device.

They are successful device company.

Thank you.

How about a forex report?

The yen is weaker.

One of the great movers today.

Sterling back to 162. we have much more.
