XBox 360 sales hit 30 million

Sales of the Xbox 360 have hit the 30 million mark after retail figures of Microsoft's console rose by over 28 percent compared to last year's figures. The global credit crunch seems to have had no effect on the sales of the Xbox with the console's LIVE community growing to over 20 million people in 26 different countries.

TechCrunch also reports that Xbox users appear to have no problem loosening their purse strings with gamers stateside having spent over $14.5 billion on Xbox accessories and games while consumers worldwide have downloaded over one billion pieces of software for the console.

In contrast, the Sony PlayStation has seen its sales figures plummet by over 18 percent over the last year.
