Well 0.2m more than what I predicted... in line with what I expected from this quarter... just a little high (1.2m was my high expectations).

77.2 million LTD

Over 2.2 million on shelves... FAIL VGC!!!

2.2 on shelves looks like a big error on VGC's side

I don't know why people keep finding the errors on this site so surprising, lol...

I don't, but I don't know why people like to try to use VGC as an accurate measure.



They could just be overshipping now so they can use their factories to make a lot of X720s (rather than X360s) in the holiday quarter. That was part of the reason the original Xbox was phased out earlier than necessary. Instead of making 3-4m X360s in Q4, they can make 2-3m, and 1-2m X720s too.



People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.

When there are more laws, there are more criminals.

Very good 360 sales and good sales YoY. Those profits are getting pretty huge for the Entertainment division as well, although since the 360 is clearly selling there really isn't any point dropping the price, might as well rake in the cash.

Overshipping?  not this again.

You cant overship, retailers can over-order.  Retailers wont be over ordering a console at the end of its life. 6 months supply?  come on man.

Its hugely undertracked.  Pure and simple.  The tracking in the "rest of the world" is just way off.



I'm not really here!

Probably Europe too.

This article reminds me of the fact that I do use Skype often with my friends but it is an utter piece of shit with all the technical issues it has (most prominently the fact that peoples' voices become distorted randomly and the calls must be restarted). Seriously, you'd think a company like Microsoft would have it figured out by now (how long have they owned Skype?).

Anyways, good news for MS. Always nice to see a company doing well when so many are underperforming.


i think the problem is with your device. skype runs perfectly fine with me. heck its clearer than phone calls. and i talk with people half way across the world to



No surprises here, except I was definitely wrong on 360 shipments GJ ethomaz.



i said it before and all say it again. xbox and ps3 are massively undertracked and this shipped figure shows it (well atleast xbox)
