The Xbox 360 has been fighting tooth and nail with Sony and Nintendo to dominate the home console market – and to a degree they have won the online battle and they’re eyeing up the casual market. With the release of Kinect not to far away.
“We are hearing great feedback from retailers that the new Xbox 360 250GB is experiencing unprecedented demand,” said the company.
“Consumers are eager to experience this new console, completely redesigned for the future of entertainment: sleeker, smaller, and whisper-quiet.”
“Strong demand for the new Xbox 360 250GB combined with a $50 price reduction in the US on the Xbox 360 Arcade and Elite consoles, now $149.99 and $249.99 respectively, has resulted in a significant sales spike for Xbox 360 since the new console hit shelves on or around 14 June.”
The UK release date of the Xbox 360 Slim console is 16 July.
