TechTree.com India - Dec 9, 2007:
In a bid to encourage the gaming culture in India, Xbox 360 has launched a first-of-its-kind "Xbox Entertainment Lounge" within the 'Mobile Store' at Walkeshwar in Mumbai, India.
What is so special with India?
im thinking the same thing.
in 2006, game sales were up dramatically, since India is a big country, Microsoft sees it as an area with high expectations for Xbox 360 to strive in.
Maybe it's the amount of people there?
Anyway, this "lounge" is within the "mobile store"? Sounds like a "Home" fighter
it must be pretty hot in there with those 360's running all the time:)
over 1 billion ppl living in a small country...thats why india is important now...MS wants to tap in to some of that greasy, obnoxiously scented market (yea, you heard me...if you ever been to india u know what im talking about).
but try to keep it to a minimum, I think there a Arabian dude here.
I'm a 360 fan but hopefully they give out ear plugs for anyone daring enough to go inside... maybe double hearing protection and sound proof walls so people outside can hear.
As much as I think that would be really cool... I dont think it would catch on much in the US. Now that you can play online... those places aren't really needed. South Korea has something like this. At the movie theater they have rows and rows of computers with WOW, xbox 360s and PS2's (probably ps3's now).
Its all about raising awareness there. If more people try out and like the product then, "IF" they can afford it they will buy it. Compared to 0 ps3 lounge there so who will benefit?
Wtf? Ireland has had an official Xbox gaming lounge for 2 years now.www.xboxlivegamingcentre.c om
