XBOX 360 recall.

Post by BILE » Tue Dec 20, 2005 4:34 pm

If any of you guys or gals purchased an XBOX 360 and it just doesn't work like it's supposed to your not alone.Evidently the first wave that was released has a lot of bugs in their systems and do not work properly(go figure) so save up for PS3 or something until XBOX 360 Works all of it's problems out.

There are no more issues with the launch consoles than with any other consumer electronics launch and there is no recall. The whole thing has been blown way out of proportion.

You have a good time waiting, I will be enjoying my 360 while you are. I'll probably end up with a PS3 in 2009 or so.

It could be the game itself and not the console.

Bill Gates made XBOX.As if he needs more money.Paying $400.00 For a shitty game system is kind of outrageous.

Apparently, Your IQ is on the opposite end of the scale as his. What the hell makes him such a bad person just because he has money coming out his nose? The XBOX contains a lot of expensive hardware, and they wouldn't be in business if they didn't jack the price up to turn a profit.

Name one thing that he's done to wrong you.

If you are just one of the people who rips on him because it's what everyone else is doing, then you are a SHEEP.

Actually the "shitty" game system costs a LOT more than 400 bucks to make. Liquid cooled triple core 3.2 GHz custom Power PC processor? An ATI GPU beyond anything they currently have on the market? 512 MHz of RAM faster than any ram available for the PC? The shit costs money ya know?

Every company that releases a console system loses money on every one sold. The idea is that they will sell a system, and hopefully a couple of first party games to break even on that sale. Companies don't really see a profit from console sales in the first year at least. If they sold the systems for as much as it cost to make them, no one would buy them. And that would just be an attempt to break even.

This is part of the reason consoles have multiple generations. They find cheaper hardware that can do the same thing as the original. Over time the components get cheaper and cheaper. This is why you can get a PS2 or Xbox for less now than when it originally came out.

Am I right Chris? Do I know that of which I speak? ;)

Absofuckinglutely with the exception of Nintendo with the Gamecube. If anyone on these boards knows their console components it would be you :)
