all i like the console i own 2 of em.....I'm just saying addons like that don't go to well with the customer look what a flop the Sega CD add on was or the 32x or the ps2 Hdd with final fantasy!! Add ons like this don't sell well and leave a bad taste in the customer's mouth
Those were used for games so ofcourse they are going to flop. The HD DVD isn't used for games, in fact from a financial stand point I dont think MS expects them to gain much seeing as though its just a Peripheral to them. Remember its not used for games (and games are MS' bread and butter), so it doesnt matter to them in terms of sales. Thats another reason why I think MS will never add an HDMI port cause they don't care as much as ppl think they do. ITS NOT THAT IMPORTANT!
Neither HDMI or HD DVD/Blu Ray adds anything siginificant to gaming so as far as im concerned they are not important.
and for those saying it was rushed...
MS' top goal with the 360 was not market share but profit! So this has very little to do with the system being rushed. Ms just never wanted to put expensive parts in there that they will never be able to pay for in the long run *ahem* xbox 1, ps3 *ahem*. So adding HD DVD/HDMI just for bragging rights is stupid and is also not only raping the consumers of their money but also raping themselves. They can offer a similar experience for a lower price then why not? I dunno bout u but if I see an affordable device that does what i want it to do, I would buy it over the over priced bloat factory thats on the shelf beside it (ps3). Its the logical thing to do.This post has been edited by incognegro: Jul 14 2006, 10:05 PM
