Xbox 360 price drop gives console a 260% sales boost

MCV reports that Microsoft is celebrating a huge rise in sales of the Xbox 360. Following the price reduction across the entire Xbox 360 family and the launch of the Elite, Chart Track data indicates a massive 260% rise in UK sales.

Why wouldn't it? It did for PS3.

The launch of elite gave x360 boost for only a week .

not more than that.

But before that it was selling bad in UK so a 260% sales boost could be like 5k units

for prrof look here.

x360 is not among the top 20 gaming products sold at these retailers NOTE :- ps3 is above x360 ....ps3 is at no 23 but x360 is nowhere to be found

in all charts you can see motorstorm and resistance.

Yes ps3 is kicking x360's B*** in UK at the moment . In other parts of Europe the margin is a bit bigger.

The surge in x360 sales is only because of elite which is VERY TEMPORARY

EVERY time i have gone into GAME, HMV or GAMESTATION (as i live in the UK) i have asked how the consoles are selling, and ALL have said the Xbox 360 are selling "well" or "very well" and the PS3s arnt doing as well. i also want to add i live in a very popular city so this isnt just going to be a one off.


nasim/larry007: your opinion, much like your very existence, is a CARTOON.

so much for the whole "PS3 is kicking 360s butt in Europe" argument.

Jeremy Gerard4063d ago (Edited 4063d ago )

why wouldn't it for Europe? do you think the sales will go up over 200% in the UK and not at all in the EU? UK EU, just semantics, those who said it was getting killed in Europe were wrong, period.

the UK is essentially Europe b/c it is the Anglo Saxon world where the 360 has the greatest penetration. However, the price drop should improve sales everywhere.

isnt it doing good in France & Spain...I thought the only
countries 360 is not doing goood at is in Denmark or sweden

"Xbox 360 also managed to remain high the following week, only falling by 20%."
