The Xbox is the best-selling console for the 20th consecutive month.
With some 193,000 consoles sold this August alone, the Xbox is far and away becoming the dominance in the Video Game market.
The next-generation Xbox, codenamed Xbox 720, is expected to keep flying the flag of dominance, and eventually outselling the current Xbox. Leaks suggest the 720 will have 6 times the graphics power of the current console sold in stores today.
Most of the success story comes from Microsoft’s gift to engage and interact game developers. These developers get first-rate special treatment, elite gaming software and SDKs, as well as Microsoft’s full support and documentation.
