It looks like Microsoft is getting closer and closer to meeting its sales goal of 3 million units. Atleast that is what GamesIndustry.biz was told.
Microsoft UK declined to comment as to whether it’s a situation reflected on this side of the Atlantic. “Xbox does not announce details of shipments, but I can tell you that we’re on track to meet our 90 day forecast of 2.75 to 3.0 million units,” a spokesperson told GamesIndustry.biz this lunchtime.
The US line is that Microsoft is “working around the clock to deliver as many Xbox 360 consoles as humanly possible”.
That means even with the crazy world wide release, and the shortages Microsoft somehow found a way to keep interest so high and get consoles out there to be bought, and thus doing what many considered impossible. It will be interesting to see how the Xbox 360 shapes up, and how much of the market it holds on to when the Playstation 3 and Nintendo Revolution come out, but a million units a month so far is nothing to sneeze at.
