Yeah its where the pics got snapped. They already taped it, wtf is M$ thinking? Not showing the box at E3 is murder. Showing it on friggen MTV goes to show you how stupid M$ is, trying only to appeal to the MTV gen and not those of use 10yrs older than them but still playing games.
If you haven't already seen the specs, goto www.xboxscene.com and read the full specifications article. Aside of being a graphics processing beast, the leaked specs say the xbox 360 includes multichannel surround output, HDTV output at 1920x1080 resolution, wifi connectivity, a 20 gb detachable hd, and much much more. This is of course a leak, so it can't be confirmed. I was having an extremely difficult time trying to decide whether to put a modded xbox or a computer in my car. The 360 is looking like an ongoing dream I've been having for years, but only if the HD is actually capable of being modded and storing games and music. Otherwise it will have to stay inside!
I heard they werent, if they are, thats better but still a ****en MTV special?
Thats just plain ol down n durrty gay.
M$ WILL NEVER OWN THE CONSOLE MARKET.
Why? Simple, the EU and USA dont control the market, JP does.
JP adults and kids play games and they certainly dont play what we play mostly. (somehow DDR took off here ill never understand that one)
Japanese spend way more money on gadgets than anyone else so they are perfect for selling video games to. And when JP prefers RPGs and dating sims, while we prefer GTA and Devil May Cry, you will never get a good foothold in the video game market as an American company. M$ has no idea how to sell video games to the world, just to America.
Since Sony took Square Enix from the video gaming world and pretty much now has FF and all their RPG talent solely, then Nintendo and M$ need to realize that you will NEVER own any big chunk of the market because your games suck. At least to the japanese.
No, Sony owns it. Sony sells in japan. XBOX dont sell well in japan I can tell you that, M$ has no RPG producers on board.
Sony has Square.
Nintendo has Miyamoto.
M$ has Gates?
M$ is just worried that if they dont push this hard enough they will end up at a loss again (XBOXs cost more to make than the MSRP and M$ lost millions the first year ON PURPOSE, just to break into the market and get a sharehold).
Interesting comments. I think the xbox is a much better console than the ps2, for my preferences, but I've not really looked beyond my narrow world view to consider the Japanese market. On paper, the xbox 360 looks like a better console than the new nintendo. However, I've also heard rumors that the xbox would not even have a hd (since they lost money on every box sold hoping to make it back on games only to have theiir systems modded and lose more money.) So, IMHO, the jury is still out on how it will suit me. I must say though that if I were choosing based on company reputation, I'd throw the xbox in a deep lake of fire!
