Microsoft has sold 67 million Xbox 360 consoles since its launch in 2005, raking in more than $56 billion at retail.

It would appear the current generation of gaming consoles has sustained itself on its broader entertainment options, and Xbox 360 sales have increased from years four to five, five to six and six to seven, as the above graph indicates.
"The more entertainment options we add, the more time people spend on Xbox," Microsoft said.
