Though the original Xbox was a modest seller in the United States, it was its successor, the Xbox 360, that truly hit it out of the park. With more than 80 million consoles sold around the world, the Xbox 360 dominated living rooms during the seventh generation of consoles, cementing Microsoft’s place as one of the main players in the world of gaming.
