Xbox outselling GameCube in the UK

Discount powerhouse irresistible in Blighty.

Posted by Staff
Microsoft is celebrating today after having again outsold the GameCube in the UK market.

The big black box, now heavily discounted and packaged with some of the best-value bundles ever seen in the home console market, last week sold 10,271 units, a week-on-week increase of some 42%

By contrast, the GameCube sold 6,657 units, still an increase of 15% compared to the previous week’s sales.

This news has re-ignited talk throughout the industry of a price-cut or new bundle from Nintendo in the run up to the first three-way Christmas battle to be fought by Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo.

We’ll keep you updated as things progress.
