Xbox 360 Has Shipped 50 Million Units Worldwide

They said it would flop back in 2005, the naysayers did, but 6 years later, the Xbox 360 has shipped over 50 million units worldwide, outdoing Sony’s PS3, and lasting longer than most ever thought it would.

It’s a winner.

Microsoft announced the numbers during its keynote last night, adding Xbox Live now has 30 million registered users, an incredible rise of 5 million from just November of 2010.

Coupled with Kinect now with over 8 million units shipped, it’s apparent the motion craze is far from over.

    yup, but ill ask the question on everyones mind.
    how many of those were to replace broken units?

    About half maybe?

  • nick

    nah, id say at least 60%
    up until late 08 M$ had serious RROD problems!
    09 they got a handle on it with new smaller processors and the new slim 360 helped allot too, but it still looks like its still vulnerable to RROD even though M$ said they completley removed it!
    sigh, when will these companies stop treating us like we were born yesterday?
