Microsoft's director of product management for the Xbox, Aaron Greenberg, has been talking to The LA Times
about how his product is widening its lead over the PlayStation 3.
In terms of figures, the paper states: "Microsoft said today that it had sold more than 28 million Xbox 360s since introducing the game console in November 2005. That compares with more than 20 million PlayStation 3 consoles sold by Sony since it debuted the device in November 2006, according to Microsoft executives".
For his part, Greenberg says,"We're widening our lead against PlayStation 3", he said. He also pointed out that "This was the best year in the history of the Xbox, despite the tough economy."
This comes just after Microsoft in EMEA stated
that it had doubled sales of Xbox 360 for the final quarter of 2008 compared to 2007.
NPD figures for the Xmas period are due next week.
