  • Microsoft ramps up 360 production

    Next-gen console enters retail at "two to three times" the previous rate; spring games lineup promises 80 titles available by June.

    Old Man Winter packed up his bags yesterday, yielding center stage to spring so that flowers may bloom, forest critters can create baby forest critters, and Xbox 360s can pour into retail. On the second day of spring, Microsoft announced that it is increasing production of its next-generation console beginning this week.

    Production of the console, which has been in short supply since its launch in November, will increase "two to three times." Microsoft attributes the increase in supply to the fact that the console's components are now in full production and Celestica, Microsoft's third manufacturing partner, has begun producing the Xbox 360.

    Microsoft also boasted that the Xbox 360 will have 80 games (both retail and Xbox Live Arcade titles) available by June. Though the Xbox 360 only saw one full retail game (Tecmo's Dead or Alive 4) released between its November launch and February 14, games have since begun to trickle in at a more regular rate.

    The news isn't just good for gamers, it's particularly good for Microsoft. With the recent announcement of the PlayStation 3's delay, the increase in Xbox 360s into stores and additional time before its rival launches its product gives Microsoft a much-needed opportunity to woo away Sony's faithful.
