Xbox 360 cracks 10 million sales in U.S.

Posted by Benjamin J. Romano

Microsoft this afternoon touted the 10 million unit milestone for its current-generation game console, noting that it's the first of the three major current-generation consoles to do so. It did not note that the Xbox 360 has been on the market a year longer than the Sony PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii. The latter had 8.8 million units sold through March, according to The NPD Group.

Also, Microsoft was so close to reaching 10 million units at the last NPD report -- 9,896,600 through March, per NPD -- that it would have been more astonishing if the console didn't make it to the milestone, particularly in the month that saw the biggest entertainment launch in history with "Grand Theft Auto: IV."
