News – New Xbox 360 UK Sales Success

According to Chart-Track, since going on sale last Friday here in the UK, the new slimmed down, smaller and quieter model of the Xbox 360 has sold a staggering amount . Apparently it has sold a similar amount to when the 360 was first launched back in 2005, and is the most successful console revision launch ever known in the UK, surpassing launch sales of both the PS2 and PS3 Slims.

The £200 console comes with a 250GB internal hard drive, built in Wi-Fi (the fastest in any console) for the first time, touch buttons, and a shiny black finish. It’s all enough to wish that my own 360 Elite would suffer those normally dreaded three red lights in order to make the upgrade.
