Microsoft is set to launch its new 250GB Xbox 360 slim model on August 21 in Taiwan, and sources from channel retailers expect the new model to triple the console's average sales per month in the second half from the first.
more reliable than the old one. I can why people would want to pick one up.
Going to be a very interesting holiday quarter.
Taiwan? Japan is often ignored by some, but Taiwan is where the real action happens.
more reliable is the key word
that's 2 words.
I think he meant reliable.
It's still two words.
Triple starting from what number?
Doubt Taiwan's a notable market for the 360-brand so I'd figure not that much. I'm sure MS would like to hear this news regardless of how big the numbers are.
I wonder how much they sell 360s over there compared to NA. (I just noticed the plus sign next to our names. It makes it easier to ignore people!)
deserves the sales.
In taiwan maybe
are in the wild in the USA, those things are almost irresistible, good price and they are pretty, specially if you like the matte finish. With 4GB you can do neflix, zune video and everything a 20GB can do. edit: ok who disagreed and why?
I agree that they are seemingly very popular and i DO like the look. I am guessing people disagreed because you referred to the finish as 'matte'. It's not 'matte' - it's glossy. http://www.merriam-webster.... 'Matte' and 'glossy' are antonyms http://dictionary.reference... On the other hand, it's possible people disagreed with you for simply stating the 360s is popular and looks nice. That kind of thing will get you debubbled and disagreed with faster than you can say 'PS3 fanboys'. Sad, I know, but it happens 24/7 on N4g.
The 360 is notoriously weak in Asian markets. This will never change.
