Xbox and its associated goodies and gadgets appear to be doing alright for themselves, if sales and subscribers are anything to go by – although ‘shipped’ isn’t really the same as ‘sales’ now is it?

Microsoft’s CEO, Steve Ballmer dropped some impressive sounding figures at his CES keynote.

50 million Xbox 360s have been shipped worldwide, with 30 million Xbox Live members and 8 million Kinects shipped (in just 60 days).

Not too bad…but seriously, how many have actually been sold?
