Xbox 360 sales soar past 76 million units

Microsoft logoThe probability of hearing news of a new Xbox this year are the highest they’ve ever been seeing how Microsoft has been teasing the countdown to its E3 press conference at the start of 2013. Until the next Xbox is revealed, we’re stuck with the Xbox 360 for a couple of months, which Microsoft took the time to highlight its overall sales.

The news comes from Microsoft’s director of programming for Xbox Live Larry Hryb who announced via Twitter the Xbox 360 has sold over 76 million units in its lifetime. The Xbox 360′s Kinect sensor also sold pretty well since its debut in 2010 as 24 million units have been sold. In addition to those sales numbers, Hryb also announced Xbox Live has 46 million paying customers, in other words, Gold Members.

At its current sales numbers, the Xbox 360 has become the fourth best-selling game console in history, behind the Nintendo Wii, Sony’s PlayStation and PlayStation 2, respectively. Considering the next Xbox has yet to be unveiled, the Xbox 360 could see some new life as an alternative to the next Xbox since it already has a large library of established titles, which will most likely receive a great discount after Microsoft’s next Xbox announcement.
