Re: Three Good Reasons Not To Buy An XBox 360...

I am composing this from the comfort of an air-conditioned villa equipped with wireless Internet access. Through its glass doors I can see the white froth of moonlit waves as they rush to the Indian...

Re: Three Good Reasons Not To Buy An XBox 360...

I am not sure what value you've brought to this thread, other than a stream of profanity.

Are you still a moderator here? Is this what we should expect of moderators?

Re: Three Good Reasons Not To Buy An XBox 360...

No, because the Xbox 360 Pro has a 60 gig hard drive, will be available in September and at a price of $349.:D

Oy Vey!

Re: Three Good Reasons Not To Buy An XBox 360...

None of which matters in the least.

It doesn't matter that the product is EOL. It doesn't matter that the price cut is temporary. It doesn't matter that it's a fire sale.

None of that...

What Does the 360's Price Drop Mean to You?

Microsoft has dropped the price of the 360 Pro. How will this price cut change your life?

Re: Three Good Reasons Not To Buy An XBox 360...

That does it! David, I have had just about enough!

Clearly there is only one way to resolve this issue: with a poll. Just you watch and see who's right, mister. ;)

Re: Three Good Reasons Not To Buy An XBox 360...

No, I don't think so.

My original post didn't promise a price cut or a price reduction or a price drop. It said the price... may soon drop.

It did. Just four months later.

So, unless...

Re: Three Good Reasons Not To Buy An XBox 360...

It doesn't matter what anyone calls it in their blog. If you reduce the price of something, the price is reduced.

Kim didn't call it a price cut. He called it a price reduction. Is that what...

After all that spin, I'm dizzy.

You know, David, you could just write "Well, hey, they did cut the price. I was wrong". So easy. So simple. So quick. So devoid of long-winded, circuitous and...

Re: Three Good Reasons Not To Buy An XBox 360...

That's a price cut, no matter how Microsoft tries to spin it.

A price cut to clear inventory is a price cut. You get the same machine for less money. No new features are added in order to get a...

Life is too short to spend 20 minutes of every hour watching ads.

And with so many DVDs to watch and games to play, I don't have time for TV.

Re: Three Good Reasons Not To Buy An XBox 360...

I think the intent of the price cut is that it will be a price cut. There's no getting around the words price and cut. Price cut doesn't suggest to me more hard drive for the same cost.

There...

Re: Jesus H Christ

I've never heard of that. Maybe it's an Aussie thing? But I have no broadcast TV at all: no free-to-air, no cable, no satellite TV, nothing. So if it is this way here in the US, I wouldn't know. ...

A CRT generates electromagnetic fields. These can be affected by the close proximity of large speakers, which contain magnets.

LCD TVs do not generate any kind of magnetic field, and therefore...

Is your 360 the Elite, with HDMI? Or are you, like me, stuck with 720p/1080i component video for your 360?

As soon as the Elite is available with the 65nm GPU, I'm buying one (unless there's a...

About 15 years ago I had my Neo Geo modded by having the DEBUG BIOS installed. But today, in 2008, the DEBUG BIOS is so last century.

Re: The Final Battle - Obama vs McCain

Obama's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
