Recently, Microsoft Xbox 360 director of product management Aaron Greenberg boldly proclaimed "What I can tell you is we remain confident that Xbox 360 will not only outsell PS3 for the full calendar year, but for this entire generation."
Strong words for the man behind a console clearly in decline.
Microsoft introduced its Xbox 360 console in 2005, its second stab at the videogame console market and so far it has been a veritable roller coaster ride of highs and lows for boththe 360 console and for its fans. From its lukewarm reception at launch through to the highs it reached in 2007 withHalo 3, from its struggles with hardware reliability to decreasing sales and economic depression, Microsoft's 360 console has had quite ride up to this point. Now, as the 360 approaches its 4th birthday it appears that hard times are ahead for Microsoft's videogame flagship. After defying the odds for 4 years the signs of the 360's decline are all around us, despite Greenberg's recent comments to the contrary.
