Microsoft announced on Tuesday that it has sold over 900,000 Xbox consoles in just one week.
The software maker shifted more than 960,000 consoles in the U.S. alone during the week of Black Friday. More than 800,000 were sold in just 24 hours. “Xbox 360 should deliver its eleventh straight month as the number one console in the US,” said Microsoft’s Jeff Meisner in a blog post on Tuesday. “Microsoft expects holiday momentum to continue, driving Xbox 360 to finish the year as the number one console in the U.S.” Highlights include:

  • Xbox 360 sold more than 960,000 consoles in the U.S. alone, with more than 800,000 sold within a period of 24 hours.
  • More than 750,000 Kinect for Xbox 360 sensors were sold in the U.S. – standalone and bundled.
Microsoft is currently preparing an update to its Xbox 360 console, due next month. The dashboard update will also bring Microsoft’s Metro style interface to the Xbox. Microsoft is also preparing to include YouTube and Bing on the Xbox. Bing users will be able to use Kinect’s voice recognition feature to search for movies, music and other content on their consoles. The new dashboard will also enable Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Phone integration with Xbox, see a video demonstration here. Microsoft plans to make its dashboard update available on December 6 for all Xbox 360 customers.
