In advance of next week's E3 gaming conference, Microsoft on Friday released some new Xbox 360 stats, and it appears that buyers are still snapping up the popular gaming console.
Since November 2005, Microsoft has sold 55 million Xbox 360s, and "sales are accelerating," Larry Hyrb, the director of programming for Xbox Live, said in a blog post.
With Microsoft touting its Xbox 360 successes, it's increasingly unlikely that we'll see Redmond unveil a new Xbox at E3. Fans might want one, but the company doesn't really need one to help boost numbers at this point. During its last earnings report, Microsoft reported a strong increase in profits and healthy growth in revenue, driven in large part by Kinect for Xbox 360 and strong sales of Xbox and Xbox Live.
