The Crystal Xbox Is BackMicrosoft today announced the return of the Crystal Xbox® across Europe. Originally issued as a limited edition in March 2004, the "crystal clear" console proved hugely popular with gamers and style gurus, winning praise and accolades from gamers and media alike. Available across Europe from 22nd October, the "crystal clear" console comes with a crystal controller and will retail for €149/£99 (SRP). This time around gamers can also buy additional single crystal controllers for €39.99/£24.99 each, so there is no need to compromise style when playing with friends or family. Michel Cassius, Senior Director, Xbox Platform and Marketing, commented: "The response to the Crystal Limited Edition Xbox was so overwhelmingly positive and demand for the console so high that we made a decision to bring back the Crystal Xbox and give even more people the opportunity to own a beautiful piece of technology. It really is the ultimate fusion of sexy design, powerful hardware and fantastic gaming experiences and the ultimate home accessory this winter." With a fantastic line up of forthcoming titles, including Halo 2, Forza Motorsport and Fable from Microsoft Game Studios and titles like FIFA 2005 (EA) and DOA: Ultimate (Tecmo), Xbox looks like a clear winner this holiday season.
