Microsoft says it will ship between 4.5 to 5.5 million of its Xbox 360 consoles before the end of its fiscal year in June 2006. These figures are lower than analysts had expected.
Analysts expect the Redmond, Washington-based software giant to ship between 1.5 million and 2 million consoles. It is unclear whether the estimates proclaimed earlier this year, according to which Microsoft would ship 3 million Xbox 360 game machines in 2005, would come true. Observers believe that Microsoft may have issues with manufacturing of the new gaming machine.
