    XBOX is the IPOD of the season

    Expect Microsoft's shares to climb as Apple's did after Ipod was launched. Rumors of crashes will be short-lived. Do you think Bill Gates would put an inferior product on the market? I think not. Theyare selling like hotcakes. I wish I had more shares.

    • The XBox's failure rate and the outrageous, artificial 'shortage,' will piss off gamers to no end. The # of XBoxes to be sold this year to artificially hold the price up so that MSFT will only lose $135-$153 per Core unit sold, will piss them off more.

      The Sony PSP is the iPOD of the season, outselling the XBox 4:1 so far.

      The 10 million that MSFT will sell this year is less than 1/5 of the total # of PS2s sold so far, excluding the # of PSPs and before the PS3 which will play ALL of the PS2 games AND be better HD source than the XBox, with 1080p native resolution.

    • Xbox was on National TV that it crashes frequently. Bill Gates realy did a poor job on the design and lauching on this one. Why do you think Wall Street keeps it at $27 plus change and not $32 as predicted?
      This product is so so but not great. Bill Gates will not see a profit on it until Year 2007 and even that is a maybe.
      Who wants to invest in a product with so many maybe questions?
