Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console is approaching its eighth anniversary this year and it can celebrate that with the news of it passing the 76 million systems sold mark. Yusuf Mehdi, Head of Interactivev Entertainment at Microsoft confirmed this news at a conference today.
In addition to that, Microsoft has managed to sell over 24 million Kinect units. Kinect started out strong in late 2010/early 2011 but seems to have slowed down a little bit in late 2012.
Its a major milestone for Microsoft. Remember, the original Xbox was on the market for four years and only sold 24 million systems worldwide. The 360 will have double the amount of time on store shelves but looks like it could break 90 million before its all said and done.
That just depends on how far Microsoft drops the 360′s price after their next home console is released.
