Microsoft touts some great numbers for its Xbox business in the US

Microsoft has just announced that Xbox 360 closed out 2012 as the best-selling console, selling another 1.4 million units for the month of December. That represents more than double the amount of the second place console in the US in the month of December, and it's the 24th consecutive month Xbox 360 has held the number one spot in the US.

The company noted that Xbox 360 generated more than $1.27 billion at retail including games, consoles and accessories in December. And the month saw tons of Xbox software purchased as well, as Xbox 360 held seven of the top 10 console game titles including Halo 4, Assassin's Creed III, Just Dance 4, NBA 2K13, Far Cry 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Madden NFL 13.

"We expect 2013 will be another big year for Xbox 360 and we're eager to continue to expand and grow the offerings available on the platform," a spokesperson said.
