    BTW 400 isn't bad when you think of how people spent up to 600 for a PS2 back in the day with all the accessories you get for the 400 its still a deal.
    Very true, the PS2 and Xbox (not the PS2 alone) had a sale price of a bit over €500 when they were released here in Europe.

    If people say that $400 is too expensive then I don't want to know what the European price for these consoles will be.

    I wonder if you can transfer the older save files and such to the new HDD, otherwise all of those saves were pointless. Either way 400 is pretty money for anyone who doesn't have a job, (even some with jobs) but I think it's semi reasonable. In regards to Mastermind's comment about the system costing 499 to make, where did you find that out? That's some craziness that there is no profit plus a loss for microsoft? o_O (perhaps they should just throw money at us?)

    And dont expect the 360 price to drop till late 06 if even and more likely 07

    it wont drop just because of other systems coming out it'll drop when they can drive down the cost of production
    If sales of the other two systems are higher than that of the Xbox, the prices will drop. It's basic economics. If your product isn't selling, lower the price.

    If the production costs of the 360 aren't down by then there's no way they'll lower it, microsoft is already going to be losing money per system sold, they can't take too much of a blow or the who video game depertment will close shop when M$ sees it as being unprofitable.

    So don't expect a price drop for a long time. The 360 will likely do good this round considering the PS3's (likely) pricetag, nintendo's laughable game selection and third party support, and better third party support from the east and west side for the 360.

    Course Xbox was built on off the shelf products, It's probable that you can take any old HDD you have laying around and fit it in there, if that's cheaper.
    wow its the perfece console its wireless and its awesome!

    Probably only if you have the HD.

    They're willing to sacrifice alot of $ to make it profitable. MS lost alot of money for every Xbox they sold (mostly due to the HD) but never showed a sign of giving up.
    The thing about MS is that they can afford to loose alot more money than Sony or Nintendo.

    Wow, Xbox is going to make alot of money off these little new-generation kids since they are going to release it before christmas (or so I've heard), but Sony is going to whack them out with their PS3 I'm sure.
