The Xbox 360 is the second video game console from the software company Microsoft, it succeeded the Xbox. The 360 is one of the seventh generation machines which competes with the PlayStation 3 and somewhat with the Wii.
Microsoft's first attempt at entering the market, with the Xbox, was not greatly successful, but the Xbox 360, which had a year lead on the Wii and PlayStation 3, has been more successful. Xbox 360 was the market-leader for many months after its November 2005 launch but was overtaken by the Wii. Despite strong sales, the Microsoft games division was not in-profit for a long time. It did, however, in the 1st Quarter of FY08-09 turn a profit.
