Xbox 360 passes 40 million in sales

A lot can happen in four and a half years – for instance, 40.2 million Xbox 360s can be sold in that time. Microsoft’s recent financial earnings statement indicates that just over 40 million units have indeed been sold since the late 2005 launch of the company’s flagship gaming system. Even more interesting is the fact that the average Xbox 360 buyer also owns 8.8 games; all impressive numbers for Microsoft, a company only in its second console cycle.
