The new launch date has been set due to unprecedented global consumer demand
stemming from challenges in ramping supply for a complex product like the Xbox
360. This is a short term manufacturing challenge and steps have been taken to
increase supply to meet the strong consumer demand for the console.

Two versions of the console will go on sale in Singapore from 16 March, 2006

“With its awe-inspiring graphics, audio and online play, Xbox 360 slams gaming
straight into the life force of mainstream entertainment in Singapore and
South-East Asia. But gaming aside, Xbox 360 is an unrivaled entertainment system
that allows consumers to play music, watch movies, share photos and enjoy other
digital content. That’s unprecedented entertainment right out of the box,” said
Tony Boatman, SEA group marketing manager of the Entertainment & Devices
Division at Microsoft.

Live Gold service.

“In addition, all existing Xbox Live gamers can jump right into the Xbox 360
online community for free. With Xbox 360, we will connect every Singapore gamer
to the thriving community of two million online gamers around the world,” said
Mr Boatman.
