Microsoft: Xbox 360 Slim Has Been Huge Hit

Microsoft have been blowing their own trumpet after the hugely successful launch of their new Xbox in the US, as the UK gears up for the arrival of the next generation of console.

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.

Will you be trading in your old Xbox for a new slimmer, sleeker edition? Let us know below…..

    I don’t get it.. What exactly, apart from being being quieter, have built-in wireless and smaller does this xbox do? Does it have USB 3.0? Does it have a blu-ray drive? Does it have any new ports? perhaps an SD Card slot? Bluetooth? Meh… it’s not really “Next Generation” now is it? More like a facelift model.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
