Amongst all the news about the Xbox One, Microsoft still hopes to sell another 25 million Xbox 360 consoles within five years. According to senior vice president of Interactive Entertainment Yusuf Mehdi,
“We believe over the next five years we can break a 100 million unit installed base,” Medhi stated during an interview with OXM. “That’s something we’re shooting for, it’s not a financial plan as such, it’s just rough numbers if you will. To sell another 25 million, half of those will probably come from replacements, but half will come from new buyers. The way we’ll break into those segments is by hitting new price points, getting new classes of entertainment to come with the Xbox, and breaking into new customer segments.”
Microsoft is also planning a huge Xbox 360 related announcement at E3 next month which it promises will “keep the console vibrant for years”.
