Xbox 360 overtakes Wii as UK’s best-selling console


Microsoft will soon have cause to celebrate, as the Xbox 360 will shortly become the best-selling console this generation across the United Kingdom.

Now easily outpacing sluggish Wii sales, GfK Chart-Track reveals that the Xbox 360 has achieved 8.4 million sales across the country and will pass the Wii in days.

“This is an historic milestone and our sincere thanks goes to each and every person that has bought and enjoyed Xbox 360 over the past eight years,” director of Xbox and entertainment Harvey Eagle shared with MCV.

“As you saw at E3 earlier this month, we announced a new Xbox 360 form factor and we are committed to ensuring Xbox 360 remains the best place to play games, connect with friends and enjoy your entertainment.

“You’ll see great exclusive content coming not only to Xbox 360, but also to Xbox One later this year.”
