Microsoft Xbox 360 Now Top Selling Console Worldwide

Microsoft’s Don Mattrick announced at the Microsoft media event at E3 that the Microsoft Xbox 360 has moved from the top console in North America to the top console worldwide, beating out the PS3 and Nintendo Wii.

Microsoft has not yet announced a successor to their popular 360 console but the success is attributed to high Kinect sales as well as improved media offerings for the console.

“There never has been a better time to own an Xbox,” he said before announcing a slew of products for the 2012 holiday season.

New games included a new Splinter Cell iteration as well as a brand new Halo, Halo 4, a game that pits the title’s hero, Master Chief, against entirely new enemies.
