Xbox 360 Sales in the UK Skyrocket After Price Drop

by Rainier on March 18, 2008 @ 9:33 a.m. PDT

Only a week ago Microsoft dropped the retail price of its Xbox 360 lineup in the UK (£159.99 for the lower end model), and it is already paying off. "During week 11, Xbox 360 enjoyed a 36% jump on week 10, which is a nice refreshing uplift for the console" ChartTrack director Dorian Bloch told MCV. "That was just for the Friday and Saturday after the price cut. Microsoft will be especially pleased to see that the overall hardware market was down – except PS3, which saw a very slight 6 % rise."
