The Xbox 360 Slim Is Seeing Unprecedented Demand in UK

Posted By | On 16th, Jul. 2010

The Xbox 360 Slim got off to a stellar start in the US, propelling Microsoft’s wonder machine to the coveted number one spot as far as console sales are concerned for the month of June, and it looks set now to replicate the same feat in the UK as well.

The Xbox 360 S, which is marketted officially as simply the Xbox 360, launched in the UK midnight earlier today across four hundred GAME and Gamestation stores, and apparenty, the consumers have lapped it up.

“At midnight, over 400 GAME and Gamestation stores opened across the UK to allow our customers to get their hands on the new Xbox 360,” Neil Ashurst, head of PR for GAME and Gamestation, said.

“There has been amazing demand for the new version of this ever-popular console, which includes a new slim design, 250GB hard drive and built-in WiFi connectivity. There was a fantastic atmosphere in our stores as hundreds of people queued to be one of the first to play on the new console.”

The Xbox 360 Slim launched in the US last month, where it helped sales rise by a whopping 88 per cent year-on-year for the month of June. In the UK, it costs £200 and seems to be largely worth it, to be honest.
