Xbox360 sales hit 28 million worldwide, 8 million in Europe

Microsoft has released the figures for its console to date, topping the sales charts at 28 million units worldwide, in just over 3 years. Microsoft's Xbox360 is the best selling high definition console to date.

Microsoft also had another release of good news, with its console selling 8 million units in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, doubling last year's total number of sales, for December. The company didn't state how many consoles it had sold in month of December, but claimed it is 1 million consoles greater than rival Sony PlayStation 3.

Microsoft also reported that the Xbox360 is the fastest growing console in Europe during 2008, a growth that exceeded expectations during the holiday season and poor economy. With price cuts to the console, making it affordable to many, outselling the competition isn't very shocking to many consumers.

Rumors speculate Microsoft will make an announcement during today's Keynote about the sales figures for North America, and total sales worldwide. Watch all the coverage from Las Vegas at Microsoft's 2009 Keynote right here on Neowin
