E3 is just around the corner and the games and consoles manufacturers are working hard to prepare for the event no doubt. Sony will be entering the conference probably hoping no questions about the recent hacking incidents arise, while Nintendo will be excited to tease its next generation console.

Microsoft however will be entering E3 with their heads held high as they are claiming their Xbox 360 has ‘revolutionized’ how long consoles’ shelf lives are. This bold claim comes from evidence of a sales chart where Sony have found their PS3 sales slowing the Xbox 360 has seen a 29% increase.
