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.

It is insane to see how well the second half of the 360 sold. It almost sold as much as the DS.
