    Is Microsoft profiting from X-box/X-box 360 at all?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 26 September 2007

    Ok I might be streching a little but the Xbox came long before and is a much more massive outlay than other projects including the Zune. I also thought that Microsoft reported a smaller loss for the division than for the Xbox. Meaning all those other things with the Zune are profitable. Xbox is the anchor/gamble.As for the Zune, it is an effort to get their operating system in your pockect. The...

    Is Microsoft profiting from X-box/X-box 360 at all?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 26 September 2007

    And for the record Microsoft does care. It is a publicly traded compnay who true boss is the owners of the stock. These investors like to see stock go up and to make it go up you need profit. It is not as if they don' t care, it is that they understood that the way to get their foot in the door was to take losses up front. Hence XBox. Now the 360 is doing well but may break even at best so...

    Lost Odyssey to be featured on 4 DVDs!

    in Microsoft Discussion on 20 September 2007

    While I agree that Blu-Ray/HD-DVD isn't needed yet this kind of discussion was applied when cds were the technology as well. But by the end of this genertion 1 Blu-Ray discs will probably be about the same price to produce as 4 dvds and the convienience will be nice. And if 4 is not annoying, when does it get annoying 6,8,10 etc. Let alone the extra packaging and shipping costs when you deal with...

    Microsoft: 11.6 Million Xbox 360s Sold

    in Sales Discussion on 20 September 2007

    I almost, for the tiniest moment, thought that when I clicked on the article they would be quoting a MS representative actually stating 'sold to customers'. But despite what Just_Ben claims this is more astroturfing/ random fact nonsense. To my knowledge none of the big 3 have or will ever actually give their sold to customer data. If we are lucky we get the sold to retailers. Sometimes we are...

    EA Screws Wii again

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 September 2007

    This in and of itself doesn't bother me. I think EA's tactics will only hurt themselves. For example they take some cash from MS and only advertise Madden for the Xbox 360. This is a rediculous policy. Maybe they made more money this way but it didn't change one buyers decision on which system to get it since the 360 was the best version by reviews I saw. What it did do is fail to indoctrinate...

    Xbox 360 Sales Discussion Charts: September 2nd

    in Microsoft Discussion on 06 September 2007

    I hope Blue Dragon is a wake-up call to publishers. More good JRPGs please. Now is the time to drop the PS2. The install base may not be there yet for the PS3 but it most definitely is for the 360, and I think it will be for the Wii(at least in Japan, and enough in the US to justify the translation).As far as EA sports games the market has shown that graphics do matter for some, Madden, and are...

    Xbox 360 Sales Discussion Charts: September 2nd

    in Microsoft Discussion on 06 September 2007

    Even I, a non Xbox fan, have been impressed with the recent software explosion on the Xbox. And sales have followed, as should be the case. The one thing I will take issue with is the Bioshock estimate of 1,500,00+ lifetime. I think any holdover hype it recieves will be swallowed by the all mighty Halo coming to town. I think alternate genre games like Madden and Blue Dragon will be grabbed as a...

    Nintendo cant do no wrong!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 August 2007

    As much as I love Nintendo I am going to have to disagree. They have made some good moves - DS, Wii Sports. Most of the current situation has to do with the other companies screwing up. Nintendo launched its console at the price home consoles should cost. I can't say this enough, jsut look at history and how many over priced consoles bit the dust. Microsoft might have gotten away with being a...

    in Microsoft Discussion on 28 August 2007

    kn said:  2.5 million copies sold in the opening period would be $172.5 million right out of the gate. Didn't Microsoft state they wanted this to be the biggest opening number for an entertainment title (both video game and movie)? I think that record stands at about $150 million for Spiderman 3 in the U.S. but I could be wrong. I don't think there is any reason at this point why they...

    This is one game I have been watching for a while.At $40 it is an easy pick up.If it is like God or War or Zelda or a Baulder's Gate(PS2 not PC) style beat 'em up I am all over it.I love Zelda but I don't have the extra dozen hours per game to look for fireflies and other fetching. I love RPGs and Zelda but with a house and a baby this kind of jump in and smash is why I bought the Wii.This is...

    It is amazing how some people like ckmlb flip out into a multi-console fight when someone mentions a happy note on the Wii. Fact- People have been dogging the Wii all year for being in a drought. That is officially over with the release of MP3.Fact- There are many games that are system movers. Believe it or not there are plenty of Mario/Metroid fans that only show up when those games are...

    What would a "next gen wii" look like?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 August 2007

    I think it is more reasonable to look at recent developments in the hand held space to get queues for the sequel to the Wii. They have already said that was their inspiration for the Wii. Yes Nintendo is all about innovation, but if this generation is as dominate for Nintendo as it looks, then they will scale back the innovation a little to not scare off all the new fans. Name: Wii Advance, Wii...

    Will Halo 3 give the worldwide lead back to Xbox 360

    in Sales Discussion on 23 August 2007

    Frankly I am going to go out on a limb and say that not only will the 360 not pass the Wii again, not only will it not outsell the Wii WW Halo release week, I am predicting it won't even outsell the Wii in NA that week. Yes thats right. A little outlandish maybe but I look at this week with Madden being released and pushing almost 1,000,000 units first week, and the first full week of the price...

    Good third party games for the Wii coming soon.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 August 2007

    Eventually it will reach a critical mass where even poor selling games on the Wii push out more copies than decent selling games on other consoles just due to the large install base. Plus even AAA titles don't cost near what they do for the other systems. It is just that much cheaper to develop for. For all the criticisms of mini-game games I think they are key for 3rd parties. A game like Rayman...
