Xbox 360 a Huge Success in Europe

By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

Gamespot published a short recap on the Xbox 360's performance in Europe. In one word, you could call the launch - historical. The Xbox 360 is the fastest selling console ever in Europe.

Although Microsoft has 3 more (of the 5 total) worldwide launches left to do, Microsoft claims to be shipping a second batch of 360s to stores before Christmas producing a total of 3 million consoles worldwide. With their 3% defective rate coming from the warehouse and figuring in half of those consoles are being shipped overseas, consumers looking to get their hands on an Xbox 360 before Christmas are going to be paying a hefty premium.
