Microsoft has released the figures for its console to date, topping the sales charts at 28 million units worldwide, in just over 3 years. Microsofts 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 years total number of sales, for December. The company didnt 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 isnt very shocking to many consumers.
Rumors speculate Microsoft will make an announcement during todays Keynote about the sales figures for North America, and total sales worldwide. Watch all the coverage from Las Vegas at Microsofts 2009 Keynote right here on Neowin
