Think about it. why else would there be such a shortage of xbox 360's, especially so close to Christmas. If they wanted to make money they would flood the market with them.
My theory is they are waiting for us to hack into it and expose any weekness's. Then they can fix them and flood the market with a version 2 design.
This way they don't loose a whole lot to hackers.

Comments, criticism, smart alec remarks welcome.

this must be one of the worst conspiracy theories I've ever heard. I'm sure they would fix things if there are weaknesses that can easily be fixed. I really don't see how this relates to shortages or christmass or whatever.

MS was hell bent on meeting their release date, being out before xmas, and out long before ps3, thats why there is a shortage, in all honesty they released before they were ready (hence the defective consoles too)

as for them using us, they are definately watching these forums, keeping an eye on our progress, if they see us getting close to anything theyll fix it ebfore we even knwo what we are on to, thats why the real dev teams arent working here, they are working on private forums, IRC channels, and together in person, not in public

I think I read some were that Sony PR has people spreading rumours of shortages so people don't buy X360's or something. I think it is all rubbish my self, but I'm not surprised that there are many problems (e.g. heat) with the X360 it kinda feels like they rushed it to get it out before Christmas.

I don't know, but I sure do remember seeing what looked like an XBOX 360 in the background in one of the original moon landing photos, just behind one of the landers feet... ph34r.gif

Maybe the xbox360 is just used for M$ is find out where all the hackers are. Let me explain, when the power button is pressed it copys your fingerprint and sends it M$ so they can do a background check on you. There are actually hidden camera's in the controlers so they can can spy on us. When the xbox case is opensed it sends a message to M$ and your name is on a list, and they are outside in a van just waiting for you NOW!!! laugh.gif or maybe they're just M$ trying to make some money in the gaming market? I do hope it's the first one, what fun would the world be if it wasn't.

Ok, here's what MS is REALLY doing. They released the Xbox 360 just to toy with sony. Then, on the very same day that the PS3 comes out........BAM! The REAL next-gen game system will be released at only a cost of $100 and with graphics far superior to the 360, the XBOX 2! Wondering where I got this info? Bill Gates told me last night on MSN Messenger, but don't worry, the secret is safe with me. I won't tell Sony or post it on a forum or anything stupid like that. That's why I'm not getting a 360.
BTW, Bill also told me that he gets a kick out of pissing off hundreds of thousands of gamers who waited desperately outside Best Buy in the frigid November air for atleast 12 hours.

That's the truth, accept it.
