    Default Xbox 360, a smart strategy?

    Xbox1 was launched a year after Sony's PS2. Currently, 100million gamers have PS2 while only 20 million owns Xbox1. (4:1).

    Thus, microsoft launched Xbox360 a year ahead of PS3. It hopes to be in the first place and reverse the ratio. Desperate consumers will be 'forced' to buy 360 as there are no other competitors.

    But will it be a good strategy towards the gaming industry? Thinking about games, Square, Capcom, Konami and Namco comes to mind. Common sense tells us that these companies will offer more games to sony's PS3 and less to 360. Maybe this was another reason why Microsoft needs to launch her console before the PS3. Not surprisingly, MetalGear was confirmed only with PS3.

    Do you think by selling products first, a company will be in the top? what are your views on the strategy?

    I think I might buy a 360 when I find money.
    Ho boy!

    Not letting me edit post and I din't notice this was ICG, so new one to fix old one.

    I think that by releasing the 360 early, Microsoft will have some problems (internal hardware things and such) and so It's a risk buying one. And for $400 I think that would suck if it broke. Whereas the PS3 will be built SOLId, and I'm betting cost less also.

    Howard think before you speak please your an imbarresment to all of ICG, microsoft woul never release the 360 if there were major problems, and its confirmed already that the ps3 will cost more than the 360, by how much we don't know. I think microsoft is doing the rite thing, because i know that if I get a 360 that I wont be as likely to get a ps3 untill later in the year. One thing I want to pont out is that they shoul have waited another week so evryone could get one, and not be so limited to their supply.

    You bastard. I just created a thread about this. Time to close.
    That's right, the Founders actually put a price tag on coming to this country: $10 per person. Apparently they felt like there was a value to being able to live here. Not anymore.
