10 Million Xbox 360's sold in U.S

Microsoft announced today that Xbox 360's sales have reached the ten million units mark in the United States. This makes it the first current generation gaming console to break the ten million mark in the U.S. Total globally there is 19 million sold. It comes at no surprise that sales were boosted by Grand Theft Auto 4's record breaking release numbers.

Microsoft also reported stated that Xbox LIVE service has doubled in membership in only one year's time, with the number growing to over twelve million.

This is very good news in Xbox's eyes after suffering a crippling defeat for their HD player and dealing with Sony's ever growing competition. Tune in for more Xbox news here.
