So it has come out that India will be receiving Xbox Live on the 23rd of September this year. Exactly 1 year after the 360 was launched over there.
Now this has caused a little stink over at the Xbox 360 forums where some feel that we should be getting Live before them since we seem to have a greater installation base and a more active community.
According to GameGuru.in there are less than 1000 Xbox 360’s in India and according to MyGamerTag.com there are only 367 people connected to Live through India.
While some estimates have put South African sales at over 30 000 and we have over 1000 people connected to Live at this time. Since Microsoft refuses to release region specific sales figures all we can do is guess and thumbsuck numbers anyway.
However it is good to see that the Xbox Live footprint is expanding and hopefully in the very near future we will also be included legally…
Our current petition has 1098 signatures…. Come on Microsoft please give us some dates….
[Update] well I got a quick message from Microsoft saying we should be getting Live by the end of this year. That is by far the most promising answer I have received to my numerous requests.. I am following up with another person at the moment so hold on for more information..Â
