In an interview with The Angry Pixel, Country Manager Jaspreet Bindra reveals Microsoft India's plans to get the Xbox 360 back in the game. So to speak.
Seeing as thats where all the Customer Service Reps are -_-/
.....so true. + bubbles for making me laugh.
I guess speed dial ftw?
LOL...bubbles indeed. 12
India to the 360 is like japan to the 360.
wrong 360 is more popular in india than ps3 get ur facts right next time Ta Ta
Proof or lies And i never even mentioned the PS3, i was talking about the PS2 still being so dominant over there.
Consoles like the Genesis are still popular their because the market is flooded with them (And I kid you not, every other store will have a Genesis for sale in the original box), games are easy to find and are cheap. Because of the way the economy is in India the Genesis is a really popular item among people, forget about current gen, a majority of them are happy with 16 bit!
keyword: PIRACY. Dvd are pirated, Bluray isnt.
People to take you're word.
pretty much late marketing piracy is too high in india
ps2 is the biggest selling console out there period,ps3 has been picking up steam but like the 360 ,games are much easier to get pirated on ps2 as well as been cheaper, so know real ground there to be had.
So do those who work at the Microsoft call center in India do they get a discount on a 360 and accessories?
Push it to the limit
I don't understand where are all these commenters getting their information from. Genesis in NOT that popular in India, on the other hand PS2 sells pretty well but that is only because there are not many other options. XBOX 360 is the only next gen console widely available whereas Sony hasn't really marketed PS3 and Wii is scarce. India has never been big on console gaming. PC gaming is what sells there.
People were indeed buying games, but only illegal ones. To such a point MS stopped shipping into India.
With a population of 1.15 billion people, India may represent a massive market for the 360. What with increased 2008 and 2009 momentum, the 360 may well be on the path that will ensure its continued success around the world, including india.
India is pretty hot, I am not sure if they want a console that is prone to overheat.
Depends on which part of India..
