According to VGCHartz Microsoft has just reached a major milestone.

Currently its sales break down as follows

Japan – 0.64 Million
EU & Others – 7.26 Million
America – 12.09 Million

If you add all those up you get 20.01 Million units. Putting it in a comfortable second spot to the Wii and still 6.5 million ahead of the PS3.

Another 4 million more and it will overtake the original Xbox’s sales and with a healthy Christmas line up to come with another Gears of War we can expect it to easily do that.

Last week the Wii outsold the 360 2:1 in world markets so don’t expect it to catch up anytime soon. It did however have a decent lead over the PS3’s weekly sales which is a suprise after the PS3’s recent (Jan 2009-now) run…

    Now can we please get a drop in the prices of games? 🙁

    Cool. There’s something wrong with your math though. 20-14.5=5.5

    No biggie, but 1+1 does infact equal 2 😉

  • Not likely…

  • right, so only 80 million to go to catch up to the PS2.

    Go Microsoft!

    lol… and can you believe that Maths used to be my strong point..

    or is this just more proof of me being a 360 fanboy 🙄

  • Okay, so that’s it Microsoft win, everyone can go home now. 😉

    will be interesting to see what the price drop is doing. But more important all the JRPG released in japan and the effect on console sales. With every previous release a huge spike was seen in japan. With tales to sell 80000 units on release and infinate undescovery in a few weeks. Expect 360 to outsell ps3 in august and september in japan

  • that’s the one thing i don’t get .. wtf are they not releasing FF13 for 360 in Japan?

    The because console manufactures work on the razor blade model. The sell you a razor at cost and mark up the blades heavily.

  • LazySAGamer

    360 outsell anything in Japan 😯

    never 😛

  • ewie

    Maby sony pulling the last shareholding say they have. Or more likely the development for the japan version is just too far and they dont want to delay it

  • ocelot

    It makes sense: Release it in the west where the Xbox install base is high and not in Japan where 2 people own a Xbox.
