Reduction in profit is not good but at least, it is better than a loss.They make a lot of profit of the hardware ,so they are in a fantastic position to drop prices and get those sales up there again.

WII want price cut. I failed for this garbage due to the remote skim and how crapy it turn out to be. Although, it has more value than the PS3 to me because I cant remember the last time anyone played the Fartstation 3 at home, and casually when we have a visit they just try out the wii and before an hour its up they tells you the wii its not accurate.

Enough talk, you get the point and I really dont have time to be writing because I need to burn a few games for the 360 and play them to see if they are warrant a purchase.

Yeap! Thats how I roll, I try the product first and if it is worth it than I buy it. Ironic as it might sound, but it is like having a girlfriend you know, you go for the first free ride and if she is any good than we keep them a little longer than the other back ups.
