    It is way too early in the console wars to say that.
    The fate of the Xbox's name, games and online all depends on the consumer.
    Don't judge yet.



    Well do you?

    Do a google search for "Xbox 360 Losing Money" and let me know if any of the hundreds of articles about how much their losses are on the 360 change your mind. The only company actually making good money from console sales is the big N.

    omg wow great argument
    maybe if you did a littlle research m$ is aware they are losing money on the consoles and they did this with xbox too. ps3 is also doing it, they are hoping to make money back with software and what not, they strive to give us great value so we have a better system. it actually makes the wii look bad since it wants to make money and give you last gen tech

    have fun with your opinion but that has nothing to do with the sales already planted

    I played GoW once at a friends house, it was AMAZING. The online is amazing, I love how you can play music at the same time on it.

    Sovieto, I will post this here for you in case you don't feel like trying to argue via PM.


    While you are trying to be a smartass, I will go ahead and clarify for you as well, since being a "smart gamer" apparently has nothing to do with common sense.

    While Microsoft has a great product, the fact that they are losing money on every console is only second in importance to the fact that because of their weak position in Japan, the amount of money they are ACTUALLY losing and the margin with which they are selling consoles is increasing on a daily basis.

    They are selling more than 10x fewer 360s than Wiis in Japan. Is it because they are selling out? You must be out of your mind. They have consoles sitting everywhere. Money down the drain. Do you REALLY think they will continue to dump money into the black hole that is the 360 and beyond?

    So while you might be a "smart gamer", you seem to have forgotten that while the Xbox 360 may be strong here, it is a floundering piece of crap to a lot of the rest of the world.

    It was reported that Microsoft has a war chest of $60 billion to lose on the console wars. They only lost $5 billion on the Xbox, and made most of it back. The 360 is barely in the red. So they still have near $60 billion. With XBL, developer support growing, I think they got 2nd place, maybe first for the entire console wars.

    Why does it actually matter how much money consoles make to you lot?

    It's not so much a matter of how much money they make, it's wondering whether or not they are losing, and how much they will continue to lose before they call it quits.

    Wii's are selling more than twice as fast as 360's and PS3 is pretty close to it and when I said GoW was the first good game I know what I said I didn't have any friends with a 360 until Gears came out
