Xbox 360 Christmas Rush Hits UK

Xbox 360 Christmas Rush Hits UK

"Microsoft executives and worried retailers speak out as this week's European launch draws nail-bitingly close.

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.usThe head of all things Home Entertainment for Microsoft in the UK has offered new comments that could make the difference between an Xbox 360 sitting under your tree this Christmas - or not. Xbox executive Chris Lewis revealed to a German publication that an estimate of 300,000 Xbox 360s for Europe is not all that "far removed from reality".

However, conflicting reports suggest there could be something of a conspiracy going on. While top Microsoft executives have gone on record to say that stock of the new games machine is being replenished as fast as possible, some gamers and anonymous retail sources in America have cited that Xbox 360s are being "stockpiled" in shops' store rooms, under strict instruction not to start selling again until a specified date. This would mean that that "sold out" signs everywhere, combined with huge publicity, inflates demand for the powerful new console even further." [more]
