Here is the conspiracy theory

MS Sells one xbox 360, the xbox goes down and returned for warranty, a replacement xbox 360 is sent, it also goes down another replacement and the cycle continues...

But the point is, for every one xbox 360 sold, MS can multiply its actual sales figures by 3, maybe 4 may be more. And can claim to dominate/ rule the console market. 

Whereas the rest will stay the one sale per person, no massive multipliers for them.
