Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

Microsoft touts Xbox 360 holiday sales

Rather than holding its fire for the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show, Microsoft just shared some details of the Xbox business’ performance during the holiday selling season.

The numbers:

17.7 million Xbox 360s sold globally, life-to-date since its launch in November 2005.

“Halo 3” became a franchise title eight times over, reaching 8.1 million units sold since its Sept. 25 launch.

Another franchise title — a term indicating a game that sells at least a million copies — is “Mass Effect,” which hit 1.6 million units since going on the market Nov. 20.

We’ll look forward to the December NPD data later this month for a more complete picture of how Microsoft did vs. rivals Nintendo and Sony. But by all indications, this was a record-shattering year in the video game industry.
