According to this MCV story, Xbox Europe boss Chris Lewis has claimed Xbox 360 is now beyond the installed base of the original Xbox.

“We’ve already surpassed the installed base of the original Xbox – which is a really significant milestone,” he said.

“We’ve been blown away by the appetite of people to consumer digital entertainment experiences.”

The milestone was predicted earlier this month.

Lewis added: “We’re at a price point that is uniquely placed – not least of which because we’re in somewhat of a challenging economic time. Ever since we dropped the price seven weeks ago, we’ve outstripped PS3 on a weekly run rate in all the territories we care about in EMEA – specifically the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Russia.”
