The UK has really taken to the Xbox in this generation, they appear to be the only European country that has though…

Apparently the Xbox 360 has just surpassed the Xbox 1’s lifetime sales in the UK which stood at 2,320,384. However the original Xbox took around 5 years to move that many units while the 360 has only been on the market for 2 1/2 years, quite a substantial improvement.

It does beg the question though, why does the UK really enjoy the 360 and no one else in Europe does? It’s not like it’s even cheap in the UK, it is actually cheaper in virtually every other country in Europe.

Most European countries also have official Live access and support as well, it seems that the 360 is doing the best in the USA, UK and South Africa while the PS3 is starting to beat it in virtually every other country…

I am sure the heads of Microsoft are just as confused about this…
