Microsoft (MSFT) claims that its Xbox 360 has reached the sale of ten million units in the US ahead of the Nintendo Wii and Sony (SNE) PS3.
The news is somewhat, if not entirely hollow, PR without substance or justification.
As Reuters points out "The Xbox 360 was the first of this latest generation of game machines to launch in the United States when it was released in November 2005. The PS3 and Wii were launched in the United States a year later."
Although the Wii has been in the market for a much shorter time, it has sold almost nine million units.
The people at the device division of Microsoft must not have enough to do.
