    Yay! Microsoft are certainly doing well with their XBox 360. :)

    Xbox 360 Sells Nearly 1M Consoles in Biggest Week in Xbox History - The Official Microsoft Blog

    Good for them I say! . :)

    Oh and we'll get the WP XBox Companion app for the launch of the New Dashboard.

    That will be something else to play with. What a spoiled bunch we are !

    Just so glad i chose the WP route! :)

    Guess I did my part to support Microsoft too. I usually avoid Walmart like the plague but they had an online deal I couldn't resist. XBox 360 4GB w/ Kinect for $289. Free shipping.

    Shhh! Don't tell the kids - it's a surprise.

    Out of curiosity, what's the reason behind the surge? The 360 has been out for at least 5 years now. I'd figure it would have reached its saturation point by now.

    Price drops and deals probably.

    I got (another) one, too! 4gb + Kinect for $199 with $50 gift card (so $149!!!) at midnight on Black Friday from Walmart. I had to stand in line, but it was worth it. Now if we could just get that companion app. Anyone know the date? Will it drop with the update on the 6th?

    That + Kinect + "new" styling that makes people forget about RROD a bit. Probably like the PS3 Slim, which helped PS3 into the #2 monthly sales slot for a few months.

    Well I've been meaning to get it for the Kinect. Just waited around for a good price. Im not what you would call a gamer. I got the PS3 mainly for multimedia (bluray and Netflix). I like the richer multimedia experience of kinect. Love the casual games for when I have visitors over.

    Well the new dashboard is out December the 6th so it shouldn't be long after that hopefully JD.

    Looking forward to playing around with it too. (Big Baby Here) :)

    I'd definitely blame the Kinect for all of the recent sales. At least that is what made both my sister's family and my parents buy one. They really would have never used it beforehand (even with all of the amazing media settings that I use almost daily here at college), but now my parents are excited for the voice control and my nieces are excited to play games without controllers (they're still pretty young, so the 360 controller is a bit much for them).

    Basically, the Kinect makes the 360 reach new audiences that would've never bought just a "gaming console". Now it really has become a media hub.
