Limited Xbox™ Editions: Pure White Edition sales, Kasumi-chan Blue Edition update & new Asian Translucent Green Spring Bundle

Lots of Xbox™ fans and collectors were gathering online last night (almost 21 hours ago from now), trying to catch one of the hard to get Xbox Pure White Limited Editions in the second countdown we were running. The high demand gave our server a tough time -lots of customers might have realized timeouts during the first 20 minutes when the console went on sale.

Finally it took only around 5 minutes from the first until last order for the Japanese 2nd Anniversary Pack that we received. Once again, every customer with a confirmed order in his customer account can call him/herself lucky.

We are sorry that we cannot satisfy more customers as the interest for this limited edition is simply too big to get enough supplies on hand. Nevertheless, a small surprise can be expected in the upcoming month. We won't reveal more details yet, make sure to check our news regularly for an update...

Speaking about limited edition Xbox™ consoles, Hong Kong will get its own limited edition set with release of a Translucent Green (Clear Green) Edition. The set ships combined with 2 games (Project Gotham Racing 2 and Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge).

Preorders for the Xbox Clear Green Spring Bundle are now taken at US$ 229 only. Once again please be reminded that this console only plays back Japanese region encoded Xbox™ titles.

Below is an excerpt from Microsoft's official press statement:

Green is the new black! Xbox®, the most powerful game console, is turning heads this Spring with the release of its cool green console bundle, for the first time the translucent green console hits the market with limited quantity. Make your friends go green with envy as you corner at high speed the streets of Hong Kong or crisscross the skies in death defying aerial combat.

Included in the bundle are: “Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge” which combines the intense action of air combat with the swashbuckling feel of a 1930’s Errol Flynn adventure movie. As the handsome and daring air pirate, Nathan Zachary, players take to skies filled with treacherous air pirates and giant aircraft carrier zeppelins.

Also included in the bundle is “Project Gotham Racing 2”, the ultimate test of racing skill, style, and daring that rewards you not only for how fast you drive, but also for how you drive fast in a high-speed, high-energy, pulse-pounding race to the finish. Earn Kudos and gain recognition for cornering on two wheels around the streets of Hong Kong; power sliding through the ancient streets of Florence, Italy; or manoeuvring along the racing line through the slick streets of Edinburgh, Scotland—all while racing some of the most exotic high-performance vehicles available.

Last but not least, please be reminded that the Xbox Kasumi-chan Blue Edition - earlier announced for release on March 25th - has been postponed for a yet to be confirmed date in this summer. The push back was caused by Temco's decision to improve the quality of Dead or Alive online (which is included in the set).

Preorders for the Xbox Kasumi-chan Blue Edition (limited to 5000 units only) have been closed for a while due to overwhelming demand. However we are confident to receive additional quantities on release date and are prepared to accept new orders once our final supply quantity has been confirmed.
