so before you go off on your rant about how much death you wish on MS, think about this: They can't keep making Xboxes if they don't make money. rolleyes.gif
Really, I forgot they made billions before the xbox was even spoke of
please dont say because they make billions every 3 months that they should give the systems away
$200 for an OS....the only OS(If you want compatabillity)...they've got every office building in the world on lock, and they're aiming for your living room.
This sounds all too familiar....this is the same shit that killed the dreamcast..lol
I remember when sega was posting tons of losses on the dc, some ppl were saying its not a big deal because sega is really popular in japan and they will make back the money from there. At that time some ppl were saying the only way they can compete was to drop the price of the DC (as if it wasnt cheap enough already) and lose more money! Anyways it did drop and sega been falling ever since.
Now MS has lost billions of dollars on the xbox console and they trying everything in there power to not make the mistake sega made and actually make a frigging profit with their next system. Yet ppl are saying theyre greedy...lol
Im with deftech on this one, Some comments that ppl make are just ridiculous. Especially when it involves spending money. Anyways i think this is a security issue more than a money issue. Sure they wanna get some money off the royalties but I think theyre most interested in controlling what type of stuff is being installed on their product.
