Compared to earlier this year, Microsoft sold 261,000 consoles in March, 302,000 in February, and 281,000 units at the turn of 2013 in January. However, the XBox 360 still reigns as the best-selling console in the US right now, claiming 31 straight months of being on the top of best-selling list, surpassing the PlayStation 3 and the Nintendo Wii U.

Microsoft will be at Gamescom later this month, as well, to announce even more details on the new console before its release in November.
