Kotaku recently received word that Microsoft is slightly pleased with the natural sales enhancement its console received following its recent batch of US price drops.

“Coming off the heels of the console price drop last week, Microsoft Xbox 360 sales have surged, with retailers reporting over 100% sales lift for all Xbox 360 models compared to the previous weekend,” reads the statement.

“Additionally, retailers are reporting that between Friday, Sept. 5 and Sunday, Sept. 7, some Xbox 360 models were selling at six times the rate they were the weekend prior.”

Pretty impressive. Shame Microsoft can’t pull the price drop shtick every week.
