A big round of applause for Microsoft and their most recent accomplishment. No, not successfully launching the New Xbox Experience. I am talking surpassing the original Xbox’s install base in just three years time. Chris Lewis, Vice-President of interactive business had this to say:
“We’ve already surpassed the installed base of the original Xbox – which is a really significant milestone. We’ve been blown away by the appetite of people to consumer digital entertainment experiences.”
It’s an impressive feat. Of course, we don’t know how many of those units sold were replacements, but let’s not that ugliness get in the way of the celebration.
