Midway concerned at Xbox 360 Euro “lagging”

Tuesday, 9th September 2008 14:36 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Speaking to GI, Midway international boss, Martin Spiess, has expressed concern that Xbox 360 is “lagging” behind other consoles in various European countries.

“I don’t know what it’s like for other companies, but the market is not as big as the US market, so naturally we have lower attachment rates,” he said.

“But it could be growing to the same size as the US – the only problem we have right now is that we see in certain territories Microsoft is lagging behind.

“Sony has become very strong, Nintendo has become very strong, but the Microsoft market in certain territories is concerning.”

    You’d think he’d be more concerned about Midway’s games ‘lagging’ behind those of other publishers. :-D

    So which regions do we think are the big issue for Microsoft here? Spain, for sure. Germany?

    I thought the European market was bigger than the US market these days?

    Hasn’t continetal Europe always been the bastion of the PS brand? Nothing new, surely?

    That one was awesome!

    ‘Nations’ relating to Europe, ‘Imagine’ relatign to the brand, and ‘imagination’ is a word.

    I am sorry but class comedians would be jealous of that.

    Damn, maybe for once Shatner is talking sense.

    If you’d heard it verbally you’d have got it.
