Default Microsoft confident they'll hit 10 million xbox 360in 2006

Great Googly Moogly!

Quote:
Peter Moore said in an interview with Bloomberg that sales of the Xbox 360 video game system may exceed the company's forecast to sell 10 million units by the end of the year. When asked if Microsoft is likely to beat its forecast, Moore replied: "Yes. All indications are that we came off a very strong Thanksgiving holiday.''

"They key is we're in stock, we're available, we're delivering well to retail,'' Moore explained. "Certainly the consumer is recognizing the fact that we have a great price point as well as 160 games available and that flies in the face of our competition."

Moore declined to provide a new forecast
Wow...10 freakin' million Xbox. They are going to be knocking out those HD DVD add ons all next year. Hell I might have to get one now or should I wait for Halo 3?

I'm very confident they'll reach 10 million, with ps3's in short supply, many gamers will feel the need to play next gen games, and the 360 offers a great experience of that.

Still to make up 2m consoles in the holiday season is not going to be an easy task. I think they'll just about scrape it though!

Plus that 10 million sold number means sold to retailers, not sold to consumers.

And they've upped their estimate to over 10million. No retailer is going to keep so many more than what they think they'll be able to sell plus a few counter stock.

3 of my friends (2 of them was thinking ps3 will own the entire world) couldn't even wait until x'mas and they have been converted into xbox360 owner and none of them couldn't be happier with their purchases.

I was on the fence also, but couldn't wait months or pay over $1000 on ebay for a PS3. I'm now a very happy 360 owner and I should be getting my HD DVD add-on any day now. The XBOX Live is the best!

I'm pretty sure they'll meet their goal. Around me I can tell they're definitely selling well and it seems MS on top of keeping new stock rollin' in.

I'm on the fence right now. Last January we purchased a 32" Samsung LCD HDTV that goes up to 1080i. Want something to compliment it.
