European VP of strategic marketing for interactive entertainment at Microsoft EMEA David Gosen has revealed that Xbox 360 has sold well over” five million in European territories to MCV – and that its battle with PS3 is far from over.
Anyone trying to call a winner this Christmas is calling too early,” he told MCV. We are incredibly well positioned – our installed base in Europe is well over five million and contrary to what’s been reported we are at least, if not more than, three quarters of a million ahead of PS3.”
And Gosen hit back at industry analysts that have claimed Xbox 360 sales have ‘hit a wall’ in Europe.
If we look at the momentum in the business in
the last few months, the trajectory has changed significantly. My only message to the analysts is to check their numbers,” he told MCV.
