It's about time, Microsoft! It's what OCZ needs...Finally !!! Hope CEO Schmitt will make the announcement after hour. The move up will be violent...big time. Good job Mr. Schmitt.
It's funny because I got a call last night fom a friend asking the same. He knows I own OCZ and he is a big gaming enthusiast. That would be a Godsend. I see you upset the shorts. LOL.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
If that is true , I doubt there would be an announcement until next week. That announcement would be MSFT buys out OZC . I t would be much easier just to buy OCZ for MSFT. It would fit their pattern as of late. The announcement could not be until Friday of next week or the following week. It would be too soon to announce news like that today.
if this was last year i would have entertained that idea... but with our channel inventory being significantly reduced (not to mention our write downs) there's no way we could sustain that type of launch, esp with our cash position... as for the whereabouts about the V4 i guessed over a month ago we had another NAND constraint and I was right... so given that a limited NAND supply, lower inventory, less cash i give this a 1% probability...
but hoping RS has something up his sleeve. with that said i just bought more at 1.31. feeling something will be announced in the next month.
It's no longer a question if OCZ will skyrocket, it's a question of when.
Come on longs, we have been beaten down long enough. This is our time.
Show some b@lls. You can thank me later.

Why would MS put an SSD in an Xbox? I thought the XBox required 250GB or more hard drive, maybe 512GB. This is a game console...so retail price is very important. Retail prices of 512GB SSDs are higher than Xboxes. I've never used an XBox but some surfing of Xbox 720 comment pages suggests the speed of an SSD is not very important to an XBox. Manufacturing cost, on the other hand, certainly is.
agreed with most of what you said...however, I think MSFT will go with 128gb ssd instead. Xbox 720 will made use of the cloud extensively to store user's data. some suggested that MSFT also get rid of the DVD drive and use USB flash instead.
