Microsoft Corporation has hit a major landmark in their console division. Over 30 million XBox 360 consoles have been sold across the globe. Sales are up from 28% from the last year which is the highest percentage growth out of any other consoles on the market.
The XBox Live community is about 20 million members too. These 20 million members are playing games with each other from 26 different countries. Between downloads on XBox LIVE and the purchasing of the console, Microsoft has made about $14.5 billion on the 360. Almost 1 billion downloads have been made on XBox LIVE.
While these numbers are outstanding, the Nintendo Wii has continued to remain the dominant console on the market with well over 50 million units sold to date. The price of the 360 has been dropped, but Nintendo continues to keep the Wii price at $250.
