The general rule in technology killer products slow down over time- yet, the Xbox shows no sign of aging…according to an independent market share firm, the Xbox 360 owns 48% of the market, ranked #1 Best-Selling console, and the Xbox 360 version alone has sold 537,000 units.
The video above should refresh memories…way back last year, Microsoft announced its new Xbox 360 console, commonly called the Slim. Although it was the hype of news for much of that year, Xbox sales figures confirm that the console is no fad, but a strong, consistent market for Microsoft.
Games like “2K11” and “Halo Reach” have kept gamers hooked up to their 360s like no consoles has done. While the Wii’s WiiPlay and PS3’s popular FPS games have maintained a good gamer following, the Xbox set of franchise, high-quality games are simply too good for gamers to resist.
Halo Reach, the latest installment in one of the most famous Xbox franchise, not only continues the story Halo fans love, but expands on saga, in the package of a great game. This characteristic goes for almost all Xbox games…each game in a franchise expands, it delves into more characters, more excitement, more game. Xbox games are truly a huge reason why Microsoft’s console is nearly unstoppable.
