Kinect gave the 360 a huge boost the holiday it came out. At least in the US. The 360 is the best-selling console in the US of the last couple of gens. Only the PS2 and DS sold more.
That is very interesting, thank you for that insight. I was wondering why did the 360 have such great legs. This seems like a perfectly good reason. I was checking the comparison between the 360 and the ps3 and it aligns perfectly with what you mention. exactly when the kinect was released, the gap started to shrink.
|First 60 months||55,633,660||44,770,004||110,238,338|
|Second 60 months||31,662,073||40,668,818||43,782,290|
It is insane to see how well the second half of the 360 sold. It almost sold as much as the DS.
