I was just reading some old news about Xbox Live, and I came across an article on CNET.
In the article, the author says "Microsoft's most optimistic projections call for 10 million subscribers by the time a new version of the Xbox is introduced around 2005." First of all, the projection was over 2 years off. Second, I didn't know that we knew the release date of the next Xbox way back in 2002. Was this just speculation or was it actually known?
