It seems that the new 60GB SKU from Microsoft isn’t selling quite as well as they were hoping.
According to reports from major game retailers GAME and Gamestation, the sales are not what they were hoping for.
A source from GAME gave a comment saying that “the 60GB sales have been sluggishâ€. He also added that â€œMicrosoft expected a demand for the 60GB model but it just hasn’t come yet.â€
Should Microsoft be worried?
I personally don’t see any reason for anyone to rush out and buy one just yet. I think that once the new dashboard update is released, the demand will go up but even then, I can’t see people rushing out to get 60GB models straight away.
They aren’t however, selling really badly. A source from Gamestation says that they â€œare still selling ok but just not at the rate Microsoft had wanted.â€
The source from GAME has also said that the new PS3 SKU will debut in the UK earlier than expected and that the stock has already arrived.
