Germany buys 10,000 Xboxen

Despite low-ball pricing from some independent retailers

Source - MCV Germany

Further to last night's report of 48,000 Xbox sales in the UK, MCV's German edition is reporting that 10,000 units were sold across the country during its first weekend. PlayStation 2 sold roughly 70,000 units during the same time period following its launch in November 2000. Several German retailers reportedly discounted the Xbox from its starting price of €479 to €399 when it failed to sell late last week. Microsoft is expected to announce its figures for the whole of Europe later this week. Related Feature - Ch€ap Xboxes in Germany!
