Xbox 360 sells 55 million units globally

Xbox 360 News Microsoft

Not every press release from a company has to do with the games they are developing, sometimes they like to show off how well they are doing too. Such is the case with Microsoft today when they announced that the company has sold 55 Million Xbox 360 consoles around the world as well as 10 Million Kinect Sensors and 10 million Kinect games.

With this announcement they also released the above graph which shows that despite other consoles of this generation the Xbox 360 is actually still rising unlike the PlayStation 3 and the Wii (look at that drop). This graph is reinforced by the fact that the Xbox 360 has been the best selling  console for ten of the past eleven months in the US. It’s good that they are getting all these graphs out of the way now, so they won’t have to show them off at E3 next Monday during their conference.

    It seems that most people under-thirty seem to know that all of the Xbox 360s will fail because the GPU runs too hot. My console did this after just over three years of light use but this flaw is rarely mentioned in the media.

    It is very disturbing to know that the company has sold 55 million defective machines but has only budgeted $1.2 billion for the repairs. That will only cover something like 12 million consoles. What about the rest of us?
