XBox 360 posts biggest sales week ever, sells 800,000 in one day


Microsoft has announced their biggest sales week ever, moving 960,000 Xbox 360s in just one week, and 800,000 within 24 hours in the Black Friday sales.

The 960,000 Xbox 360s were accompanied by more than 750,00 Kinect sensors, either stand-alone or bundled.

Entering its 7th year of sales, Microsoft anticipates that the Xbox 360 should deliver its eleventh straight month as the number one console in the US. Based on its robust holiday portfolio and the new Xbox LIVE dashboard going live on Dec. 6th, Microsoft expects holiday momentum to continue, driving Xbox 360 to finish the year as the number one console in the U.S., a crown it lost last year to the rapidly fading Wii.

Microsoft now has 75 Kinect titles and will also be bringing hard-hitting exclusives such as “Gears of War 3,” “Forza Motorsport 4” and “Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary” to the party this Christmas season.
