An earnings release by Microsoft has raised some very interesting details regarding its plans to steal the show at E3 2011. Microsoft have boasted that they have sold 2.3 million consoles since the start of 2011, translating to a 79% increase in sales compared to the same period last year. Microsoft have proclaimed that Kinect is the ''fastest selling consumer electronics device'', and this fact is officially recognized by the Guinness world records.
Where everything gets interesting is the fact that Microsoft have stated that they are expecting''momentum to continue'', with a projection of revenue increasing by 25%. The electronics giant will make its announcements about driving growth at E3 so a price cut can most likely be expected. Nintendo will debut its Wii successor and Microsoft will surely drop a megaton to ensure that it's Xbox 360 console isn't overshadowed by the Wii 2.
