    Motion control comming to the 360 this Fall

    in Microsoft Discussion on 26 March 2009

    NinjaKido said:Peripherals released later on in the life cycle of a console never have impressivley high attach rates , exactly why HD-DVD had such a low attach rate and exactly why Motion + will have a low attatch rate.The consumer expects a complete gaming package so buying an additional peripheral ( especialy if it's expensive ) will have to offer some serious incentive to make the...

    MS is playing dirty, I commend them (360 sku rumors).

    in Sales Discussion on 12 March 2009

    Do you know "retail sales and marketing" for Microsoft Office and Windows Operation Systems doesnt necessarily mean the revenue from a retailer selling Office and Windows. It means that the costs of sales (Sales people, etc.) and marketing (promotions and advertising) are included in the EDD division. Windows Mobile used to be separate division and only once showed a profit. With the iPhone and...

    MS is playing dirty, I commend them (360 sku rumors).

    in Sales Discussion on 10 March 2009

    Price cut will be in addition to any changes to the product (changes in HDD size, etc.). Remember changing the HDD is so that they can indeed cut the price of the console. Keeping smaller HDDs that arent being made in mass quantities results in higher cost to produce the 360....

    MS is playing dirty, I commend them (360 sku rumors).

    in Sales Discussion on 10 March 2009

    Any of these SKU changes are to keep the 360 as cost effective as possible as the #1 goal. MS knows that 60GB HDD are starting to be discontinued as the mass produced models. Check yourself it is now cheaper to purchase a 80GB than it is to purchase a 60GB at www.newegg.com and in fact you can get a 120GB drive for only $5 more.There is no desparation here. Get used to this. Every year the size...

    PS3 sales post MGS4

    in Sales Discussion on 02 July 2008

    The only way new big release software titles make a sustainable impact is they stop sales of consoles from slowly dropping.Without the MGS4, GTA4, Halo 3 titles the sales of PS3 and 360 would start to slow. Basically they refuel the tank. They may or may not cause an initial big bump, but that is short lived. Halo 3 caused a couple of month bump, MGS4 a couple of week bump and GTA4 really...

    in Sales Discussion on 16 May 2008

    @DnoThe problem about your argument is MS is not about to be in 3rd place anytime soon (unless you think 2010 is soon). One big thing NPD did yesterday was to further proove that the 360 at current price point is not loosing it's lead in NA. The anemic PS3 and very anemic 360 sales in Japan is doing nothing for that left Europe and so the PS3 didnt move ahead rapidly MS dropped price and that...

    @DnoThats a load of Bull. MS is happy to be holding serve in Europe. So your equating a price drop of $20(Core/Arcade), $50(Premium), and $30(Elite) to the $200 that the readily available PS3 got. Also by the way the 360 price drop was more than a month before Halo 3....

    in Sales Discussion on 16 May 2008

    Just because the 360 sales in others didnt pass the PS3 sales doesnt mean the price cut didnt do anything. Werent reports saying that sales increased over 50%.Lets assume the same thing happens in the US. That puts the 360 selling about 300,000 in April instead of 200,000. That would be about 100,000 more than the PS3....

    NA Sales UP---Ps360--OUCH!!

    in Sales Discussion on 13 May 2008

    Both the PS3 and the 360 sales below the week before GTA4 release sales. If these numbers hold then it really goes to show 1 title doesnt cause an avalanche of new hardware purchasers. Building out a quality lineup is what sells consoles. Think about that with MGS4 coming out, a title that doesnt sell nearly as well as GTA with nearly 13 million PS3s in customers hands when it releases....
