Updated Xbox 360 Shipping Figures

Microsoft has revealed that it has now sold over 3.3 million Xbox 360 consoles worldwide since the launch last November.

The figure is a marked increase from the 1.75 million consoles that Microsoft announced it had shipped, via its Earning Statement, back at March 31. If the numbers are correct, it also means that although it took them around 4.5 months to ship 1.75 million units, they have since been able to ship another 1.55 million units in around 5 weeks.

Finally, these latest numbers mean that if Microsoft wishes to reach its goal of 5 to 5.5 million Xbox 360's shippped by 30 June, they need to shipped another 1.7 million consoles in around 8 weeks, which should be possible given what they have done since March 31.
