Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg has said on Twitter Xbox 360 sales are up 88 percent post E3, and Xbox 360 was the top selling console in June.

The NPD figures are out later this evening, so thanks to Greenberg blowing the whistle early, we at least know what console won the hardware wars for last month.

Greenberg attributed the sales spike to the new Xbox 360 model unveiled at E3.

In response to last month’s NPD results, Microsoft, which came in third for the month behind Wii with 194.6K units, released a statement, citing great “feedback from retailers that the new Xbox 360 250GB is experiencing unprecedented demand”.

We should be getting the full thing here in a bit, but it looks like we already know who won.
