Xbox 360 sales up 40% in UK after price cut


Over the weekend the Xbox 360 saw an impressive 40% sales spike in the UK following a European price cut. The spike comes just as Sony prepares for another PS3 retail offering with the GT5: Prologue Bundle. According to Chart-Track, despite the Xbox 360 hardware boost, the software sales did not see an increase, but the company dismissed that because of the strong showing the previous week by Army of Two and Bully.

Chart-Track also reports that Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games returned to the top spot in the software sales. Seriously, people, tell grandma to stop buying this game and end the madness.
