The Xbox 360 made a statement this generation. The original Xbox only surpassed 24 million units worldwide, and Microsoft found themselves selling a few million consoles more than Nintendo, but obviously came nowhere close to the Playstation 2. With the Xbox 360, Microsoft made a statement, and proved that they are here to stay in the gaming universe. 2013 is going to be a big year for Microsoft. With the rumors of a new console, new Kinect, and new games from Microsoft 1st parties, 2013 could prove to be the most important year for Microsoft since the launch of the Xbox 360.
