"Microsoft's Entertainment and Devices Division posted a healthy quarterly rise on Thursday thanks to strong Xbox 360 console sales, as the games business turned a profit for the third straight quarter."
This means they are here to stay and for the future, we can expect healthy competition to give us a better deal on consoles... Good.
i thoroughly enjoy my 360, and had no doubt that they were here to stay... Game on people, especially after the 29th.....!
Imagine how much of the 360's gains are offset by the debacle that is the zune player. Everyoen thinks Ms needs to sell the most 360s to be profitable. That's not true. MS is going to continue to gain about 100.00 on ever 360 sold until sony can afford to lower their price more.
You're making even more money! And the PS3rd STILL isn't proffitable! HA HA HA HA!
if they could finally solve their reliability issues, they could enjoy greater success. hopefully the new 360's have solved that issue, and I guess we'll see as people play GTA IV for hours and hours straight.
So true same with the online factor because my private chat does not work since december.
have you checked your NAT settings bud, controller/controlerb settings headset?...sounds like the problem lies at your end mate. every person i know who have had simialar problems, has been able to fix it themselves. man, it just shows you how many pro-sony boys populate this site! if this had been a thread saying the same thing about the ps3, this would already be over 100 comments!
Great observation. It also shows their unwillingness, to give credit when due. If it's to be given to the 360.
I'll do that when i get online today, but if it still doesn't work then its there end right. Really my system won't connect to private chat. I have opened up all ports to go to the xbox on my rotator. I like to play my 360 and talk to my cousin on private chat while I play single player parts of games be cause we work on them to together through private chat.
I am not much of a fan boy I like all the systems. xbox live hasn't connected that well for alot of people. Other then that when I do get to connect to live I have a blast same with my ps3.
I have the same problems as warhawk, I have a open nat. I have problems with private chat through my router, straight from the modem, it does not matter. I feel it has something to do with the update we had around november because even my dashboard has been giving me problems.
Nm guys figured it out Darkstar set me the message and yes my nat was open and still having trouble.
after you have opened the ports on your router, you then sometimes have to enter some derails on the 360 itself..in the network settings option! the best thing to do is this: go to xbox.com, obviously, the one that corresponds with the contry you live in. and go the the forums, and make a thread about it on the most popular forum. state the problem, and the make of router, and write down who your provider is. you can guarantee that there will be someone who can give you all the info you need! if you're from the UK, ask for "shadowman" he's a network engineer by trade, and has his own web-site dedicated to tackling the problems....i'm gonna send both of you this, check your PMs. and don't forget the bubbles next time you see me lol
PS3 price is going up while 360 profits go up and price will (likely) fall. Is that about right?
