http://www.blogsmithmedia.com/www.xbox360fanboy.com/media/2008/01/halo3ftwetcetz.jpg (http://www.majornelson.com/archive/2008/01/03/some-xbox-360-numbers.aspx)Late last night, the Xbox 360 marketing team released new sales numbers and factoids (http://www.majornelson.com/archive/2008/01/03/some-xbox-360-numbers.aspx) prior to the official NPD being released and things are peaches and cream. Peaches and cream with extra sugar.

Microsoft revealed that to date, the Xbox 360 has sold a solid 17.7 million consoles worldwide and it's rumored that December's numbers will eclipse November's sales (http://www.xbox360fanboy.com/2007/12/14/november-npd-360-sees-second-best-month-ever/) reaching the 1 million unit mark. But that isn't all. Microsoft also gloated that Mass Effect has now sold 1.6 million copies since its November 20th release and Master Chief's Halo 3 has moved an astonishing 8.1 million copies since September. 8.1 million copies! That means nearly half of ALL Xbox 360 owners have purchased Halo 3. Simply amazing. Now we'll go back to patiently waiting for December's NPD to release. Until then, we'll be eating some peaches and cream in the break room. Holler if you need us.

I was still thinking that they were barely reaching 12 mil, given that they only sold 5 mill in 1 year. They more then doubled they're yearly consoles sales for '07 O_o
