At that time, Microsoft raised its full year guidance for profit and sales.

joemomma4661d ago

Me? Why hate a piece of plastic? Im no hater im just telling it like it is.

mintaro4661d ago

ill explain why i define you as a 360/MS hater, you see the article MS to make big profit, and you probably say to yourself, hmmm how can i ruin a peice of good news, oh i know!! ill say that MS made money only by screwing its customers!! it had nothing to do with all the great games that came out last year, but it was because of the overpriced online sevice. and im pretty sure that if it hadnt crashed for that week, you wouldnt even be taking about it.
im pretty sure the 360 defects were even more rampant in 2006, yet MS still coudlnt turn a profit, i wonder what was different from that year and this year.........oh i know! games!!

mintaro4661d ago
