Xbox 360 Lifetime Sales Reach 42 Million

Posted By | On 23rd, Jul. 2010

Microsoft just officially announced that their current generation home console, the Xbox 360, has now sold 41.7 million units. Microsoft and Devices Division also reported a huge year-on-year improvement, which a profit of $679 million this year as opposed to that of $108 last year.

In the quarter of 2010 which ended with June, Microsoft shipped 1.5 million Xbox 360 units, which is 25% more than the 1.2 million units shipped the same time last year.

The shipment for the previous 12 months, however, has fallen from 11.2 million units to 10.3 million units, an 8 percent drop. As of March 2010, the PlayStation 3, which is in direct competition with the Xbox 360, has shipped approximately 36 million units, and is in last place in the current generation console wars.

The Xbox 360 is a huge improvement over Microsoft’s first foray into the console market, which was the original Xbox, which sold only around 22 million units in its six years lifetime.
