Xbox 360 maintains its lead in the U.S. console market – marking the 20th consecutive month as the top-selling current-generation console in the U.S.

August 2012 U.S. NPD highlights:

· Xbox 360 sold 193,000 units in August, more units than any other current generation console, and held 48 percent share of current-generation console sales in the U.S. This marks the 18th consecutive month that Xbox 360 has held more than a 40 percent share of current-generation console sales in the U.S. (Source: NPD Group, August 2012)

· Total retail spend on the Xbox 360 platform in August (hardware, software and accessories) reached $196 million; consumers spent more on Xbox 360 products in August than they spent on the other two current-generation consoles combined. (Source: NPD Group, August 2012)

· During the month of August, Xbox 360 held five of the top 10 U.S. console game titles including: “Darksiders II,” “NCAA Football 12,” “Sleeping Dogs,” “Transformers: Fall of Cybertron” and “Call of Duty: Black Ops II.” (Source: NPD Group, August 2012)

There has never been a better time to own an Xbox 360 than this holiday. This fall, Xbox 360 is gearing up to launch a suite of new entertainment and gaming experiences including the year’s hottest blockbuster games; “Halo 4,” “Forza Horizon,” “Dance Central 3” and “Fable: The Journey.”

Also on the horizon for this year are breakthrough Xbox 360 experiences for the whole family such as “Kinect Sesame Street TV,” “Kinect Nat Geo TV” and “Nike+ Kinect Training,” alongside Internet Explorer for Xbox 360, Xbox for Windows 8, Xbox SmartGlass and Xbox Music.

Lol You seem way too excited to not be part of Microsoft's PR team
Gratz Microsoft though.

EDIT:
I am not the one who disagreed with your comment.

I disagreed with you just because you edited your comment with...

"Edit: Disagrees???

LOL!!!!!!HAHAHAHAHA"

You only had one disagree... not "disagrees". You seem to have delusions of grandeur. So I added another disagree, so you could have "disagrees" and feel good about yourself... You're welcome.

No there HAVE been better holidays for the 360 than this upcoming one and the last one. 2006/2007 were definitely its best years (especially when those games were hot among Live buds).

wow I don't understand it. If they do a price cut they will be able to stand toe-to-toe with the wii-u at launch. Since the wiiU is a current gen tech people may go with the 360 or ps3 because of their better libraries. Sells would go crazy if their was a $99USD 360,4gb or a $249USD 360+kinect 320gb or a PS3+vita+move bundle!
