80 Million Xbox 360 Sold and Counting

Microsoft revealed yesterday that  Xbox 360 has “reached 80 million consoles sold to retailers worldwide” according to its internal data. “Sold to retailers” doesn’t necessarily mean all of these consoles have yet to trickle out to customers, though retailers wouldn’t buy consoles unless there was consumer demand.

Microsoft also mentioned that although it was beaten by PlayStation 3 in monthly sales last month, it holds the title of the top-selling console in the US in 2013. 1.6 million Xbox 360 consoles have been sold in the US this year.

On the back of strong Grand Theft Auto V sales, Xbox 360 software amounted to $401.2 million in the US in September, Xbox 360’s strongest September since its launch eight years ago.

Xbox 360 launched in the fall of 2005. At 80 million sold, it’s officially the seventh best-selling piece of gaming hardware in the history of the industry, behind Sony’s PlayStation and PlayStation 2 and Nintendo’s DS, Game Boy/Game Boy Color, Wii, and Game Boy Advance.
