There is no doubt that Microsoft’s game systems have been very popular ever since the original Xbox console was released back in 2001. But when it comes down to sales the Xbox 360 has sold more unit worldwide than the original Xbox console along with the Xbox One. Ever since, its initial release back in late 2005 the Xbox 360 has managed to sell approximately 84 million units worldwide. Not only as the Xbox 360 managed to sell more than the original company but it seems like it also end d up selling more than double the amount of the Xbox One which ended up selling somewhere between 25-30 million units worldwide.
To be quite honest it seems like Microsoft had more momentum in relation to gaming back in the 00’s opposed to the 10’s decade. While the shooter genre became very popular in the 00’s we also saw the rise of video game series such as Gears of War, Halo, Left 4 Dead and many others that were more of an attraction to gamers while they were new. Even though, first party games for the Xbox One console still remains to be huge money makers for Microsoft its seems like the console has not been able to match the level of success the Xbox 360 has in the late 00’s and early 10’s.
