XBox in Canada

Being from Canada myself this is very exciting news for availability of the XBox here in the great white north. Here’s Microsoft’s announcement to us Canadians.

Microsoft Canada today announced updates to the Canadian launch plans for Microsoft Corporation’s highly anticipated Xbox video game system. Starting Nov. 8, 2001, Xbox will be available for purchase at retail outlets across Canada at an estimated retail price of $459.99 Cdn. Microsoft Canada anticipates its launch library of 15 to 20 games will contribute significantly to building consumer excitement and driving sales of 1 to 1.5 million units across North America by the end of the holiday season.

"Xbox, the most powerful and easiest game platform to design for, allows game designers to finally realize their true creative visions for games," says Ryan Mugford, Marketing Lead - Xbox, Microsoft Canada Co. "The combination of power and creative talent means that on November 8th and beyond, Canadian consumers will experience a new level of game play."

"We are overwhelmed by the interest from our consumers who have been eagerly awaiting the launch of Xbox in Canada," says Jim Tyo, Electronic Boutiques’ recently appointed VP of Canadian Operations. "Microsoft will help drive growth in this competitive industry with Xbox. Its future-generation features and price point will offer gamers significant value. We are thrilled to be partners with Microsoft to launch this exciting new system into Canada."

Hip, hip.....Hooray!
