XBox reduced to $200 USD in Australia

post #1 of 5

$267 in Europe...

MS getting a bit desperate?

So sales are pretty steady here...about 30,000 units a week, I think they said, but the price drop isn't coming here...

Analysts said MS would lose $1B before starting to turn a profit on it...They're going to lose 20-30% more than that if this is true.

Because the games suck. Who cares about all the horsepower it has if the graphics/gameplay/etc are 'average'?

Buy a PS2 or Gamecube.
No, the bazaar cannot satisfy users. Neither can the cathedral. Nothing can satisfy users, because software is written to enable rather than satisfy, and because most users are mewling malcontents...

Journalists are already dubbing Microsoft’s ill-fated console, the Xflop.

God, I should be a reporter.

PC emulation will be the final nail in the coffin.

It's a strangely satisfying experience to see MS fail when, for once, they have the superior product on the first try (perhaps not in the games department, though, which is really where it counts)

Maybe next time they'll stick to a time tested strategy of getting rushed and buggy product out, and not really having an acceptable version untill about the 3rd rev. They might of kicked sony-nintendo butt!
IBL!
