SYDNEY: Microsoft continues to post strong sales results in the gaming console market following on from the record-breaking release of Halo 3 — Microsoft claims that sales figures for October show that Xbox 360 was the best-selling console hardware for the month.
According to a release from Microsoft today, Halo 3 also remained Australia’s number one game, selling more copies and generating more revenue than any other title across all formats. In addition, Australians spent more dollars on Xbox 360 hardware, software and accessories than on any other platform.
“We have maintained our momentum throughout October and with the blockbuster range of titles we have coming in November and December, Xbox 360 is primed to finish the year on a very successful high,” said Microsoft’s Australian Xbox director, David McLean.
