Xbox due March 15th in Europe?

Trade weekly MCV has placed its money on that date

Microsoft may have chosen March 15th 2002 as the release date for its Xbox console in Europe, MCV is reporting. Although Microsoft had previously announced the console as due in Europe for "some time in 2002", this is the first time we've heard a date touted. The relaxed timing would allow Microsoft to judge reception of the console in Japan and the USA before throwing itself into a massive Spring launch campaign a few months later with whatever's left in the marketing kitty at that point. The pre-sale advertising for Europe will probably kick off in noteworthy retailers over here as early as Christmas if the date is correct.
