Xbox 360 took the lead in July 2011 even if they have a low game sales.

A new NPD data has given the Xbox 360 the lead in a market that was the worst since October 2006. Microsoft’s console moved 277,000 units in July, a half of what it managed back in June. However, it was still enough to beat the sales of its competitor like Sony’s PS3 and Nintendo’s Wii.

Microsoft said that while NPD didn’t have a hard data for the other consoles, the lead was going to the greatest year in the Xbox’s 10-year history.The Xbox 360 was helped greatly by the Kinect, and the relative freshness of the slim Xbox 360 design that was released a year ago. On the other hand, the sudden drop in the console’s sales just revealed its poorer game sales. The total sales was down to 26% and saw just eight games got more than 100,000. A year ago, 19 games had broken the same milestone.
