Microsoft has today announced that it will release a limited edition translucent green Xbox console in Europe on May 2. The console will ship with two matching translucent green controllers, and will retail for around 230 euros or £150.

"The 'Xbox-green' is instantly recognizable and by making the Xbox this translucent green we have, we believe, created a console that anyone would be proud to show off in the home," said Michel Cassius, European director of Xbox platform. "It is a 'must-have' for Xbox fans across Europe who are keen to show their commitment to the future of gaming and who want something a little bit different."

The exact number of translucent green consoles that will be made available in Europe has not been confirmed at this time, nor has a North American release for the limited edition pack. We'll bring you more information on this story as it becomes available.

doesnt that blow. I would love to pick up a new "green" xbox. I personally think it would be a huge hit over here in north america. But i guess microsoft thinks we are unworthy because sales are so good here.

Definately cool, but, after much thought, how often would I look at my XBox versus playing it?

:watchout:

Well, YES, it is cool, and I would want one, but I would rather have MS use these little "Gimicks" to grow the user base, ya know!;)

The reason for all of this attention is because Europe is key in Microsofts quest to boost Xbox sales world wide.

hmm.....a limited xbox made with the debugging kits case.....KICKASS! although, i thought the derby stallions(clear blue) sega saturn was kick ass and still do but, i wish i hadnt payed so much for it. so i prob wont get this even if it gets a domestic release.

I think that a cool looking silver colour would be great. Has anyone here seen any pics of Xbox Lite yet?

Why not just strip your xbox down to the case and buy some tape and do a custom paint job yourself? Personaly id prefer that over a clear green case.

I wonder when M$ is gonna start doing cool stuff like that for AMerica. Japan gets the cool dino crisis 3 xbox, europe gets see through green box, and All we get are to take surveys about which see through color s controller that we want.
