Xbox Europe boss Chris Lewis has told MCV that Xbox 360 has now passed 9 million sales in Europe.

“Our installed base is now well over nine million in Europe, where we enjoy about 27 per cent of the current share of the console market,” he said.

“This calendar year, we’re the only console showing positive growth. That’s 22 percent on the first half against a market that is down to a similar margin overall. So we are bucking that trend.”

Buck that trend, Chris. Buck the shit out of it. More through there.
