Midway concerned at Xbox 360 Euro “lagging”

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

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.”
