Xbox 360 will be out for Christmas

I know my boy will be excited about this little news nugget, Microsoft, hoping to take advantage of the Christmas shopping season, will release the Xbox 360 on November 22 2005 in the United States, in Europe it will be available December 2 2005 and in Japan December 10 2005.

Last month, Microsoft said the Xbox 360 would come in two flavors: a base model for $299 and a souped-up version with a 20GB hard drive and wireless controllers for $399.

For months, Microsoft has said it would have the Xbox 360 out in time for the holidays, and Wednesday’s announcement confirms the company will get several months of first-mover advantage over Sony’s forthcoming PlayStation 3 and Nintendo’s Revolution, both of which are expected to be released next spring.

Okay, I’m looking forward to it as well, just hope they have some good games out in time as well. I also hope, they have some games quickly that will take advantage of all of it’s resources, video game developers are having a hard time keeping up nowadays.

“Still, Microsoft said that by combining its new machine with its Xbox Live online gaming initiative, it has every hope of taking over the top spot in console gaming now firmly held by Sony.”

I hope so, can only help they boy and I out. ;) Read more at
