Peter Moore, seemingly taking on the Lead Evangelist role at Microsoft Game Studios these days, made some bold statements today about the future of the Xbox 360 console.
Speaking this morning at the Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association games summit in London, Moore went on record to say that the Xbox team is looking to ship as many as 10 million hardware units within the first year of the long-awaited platform update going on sale.
"The target of 10 million units gives tremendous momentum to a platform. That is a target we are looking at that we think we can reach in quite a quick manner,? he said.
Moore claims that his team are looking to ship this figure within the first 12-16 months, an astonishingly bold target and one that is perhaps indicative of the price point of the 360, one which we are led to believe will break all loss-leader platform records.
Of course, we?ll keep you updated with any further developments.
