360 doing well in India


According to GameDaily, the Xbox 360 is doing very well in India, where it was launched in September (booth babes and all). An analyst from Amritt Ventures states that the console is "ubiquitous in stores across Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore." We'll note (as did Joystiq) that a console's presence in stores doesn't necessarily mean it's selling well (just ask Sony). Also, many will recall that the 360 is so expensive in India that many people require a financing plan just to get one. Still, India's gaming market is expanding fast, and it's obvious that MS is keen to get a piece of the action.

While we're certainly interested in how our favorite console fares in other countries, we have to admit the real reason we ran this story was to post the Indian 360 commercial again. We might be overstating the matter, but it's possibly the best commercial ever made for any product evar. Enjoy.

1. We in the US to use a financing plan to purchase the 360. It's called credit cards, and many 360's that were purchased on launch day are still not paid for.
