Xbox 360 Expected to Break Video Game Records in 2008

Peter Moore replacement Don Mattick tells why in an email sent to his staff shortly after Bach's CES 2008 appearance on Sunday. "We have the big blockbuster hits that everyone wanted to play," he wrote. "Of the top 20 best-selling titles in 2007 this generation, 13 were on Xbox 360, compared to seven on the Wii and zero on the PS3 according to NPD."

At its current rate, Microsoft stands to sell slightly more than 28.5 million Xbox 360s worldwide -- a far cry from the 100+ million that Sony's PlayStation and PlayStation 2 each sold in previous generations, and just 9 million more than the estimated 19.5 million Wii units already sold by Nintendo in just over a year.

The story is too old to be commented.

This Don Mattrick guy is worse than Peter Moore. He just keeps spouting bullshit and threats.

mgs is a weak franchise only mgs1 was good why cause it was the 1st in the series.gt 5 is lame compared to forza 2 so there is no good game coming out for the ps3 while the 360 has fable 2/toohuman/warhound/gears ofwar 2/ng2/alanwake/yes the ps3 fans are scared it can bee seen with lies about paramount and warner going blue ray when what they only said wzas they will support blue ray not go exclusive with it but support both platforms

\/\/what Jacob Ellis said befre the edit.

No we aren't annoying.
Just tell your f*cken Microsoft friends to shut the hell up with their XBOX 360 promotional sh*t.

*We have the most games no doubt!
*We have hundreds of unannounced Exclusives!
*We will be # 1 by the end of 2008!
*We will sell set record breaking numbers in 2008!
*We are the sh*t!
*We own the world!

I mean what the f*ck? Just shut the hell up. You don't see Nintendo or Sony talking sh*t. This isn't E3 or anything. WTF is wrong with those idiots?
