Too bad they didn't say: "take this with a grain of salt, because by then almost everyone was buying a second xbox360" Becuase RROD.

Drop the damn price already Sony

JEECE85d ago (Edited 85d ago )

Why would they? Online retailers can't keep it in stock right now.

Could you image if they did how many PS4's they would have sold? Imagine if the P4 PRO had a hugh price drop!

Reminds me of the 5 dead 360s in my storage junk pile.

Lon3wolf85d ago

Reminds me my 360 was replaced free of charge (in the bloody end MSoft). I certainly wouldn't buy a defective product 5x lol.

Rhythmattic85d ago (Edited 85d ago )

How ever you look it, well from what my own personal observation was, 3 friends bought at least a second, and another a 3rd.......
Thing is, When MS accepted they couldn't get away with the reliability issues, caught out playing blissful ignorance, 2 of those purchases were because though it was under the new warranty plan, they just couldnt wait a week or two..
Crazy Ay.

I have consoles dating back to Atari and the only console I have that doesn't work is my 360 which was the second one I owned.

Your replacement was obviously after the warranty was implemented. Many (before the warranty) were not so lucky.

Lon3wolf85d ago


Indeed, but I wouldn't buy 5 consoles taking pot luck, if it were me I would of quit at 2 until the issue was resolved.

Who would buy a console 5 times. Should've gotten it replaced free by Microsoft because that was what the billion dollar write down was for smh. Two Xbox 360s for me the whole generation. Original console that was fix for FREE and the smaller black one thst came out around 08 or 09. WTF would anyone buy 5 consoles when you could've gotten it fixed for free. Lolol

I know Yeah right? I know there are some people that can't wait for the repair to reach Microsoft, and then get back to them. I know a few people that have so much money that they don't want to bother going to the post office. They just buy one.

Me on the other had I had mine until the xbox one came out, mine did not ever break. In fact I sold it to my sister for a cheap price with lots of games, and it was still working as of a couple years ago(she has not turned it on since then).

Wish there was a way to know the sales comparison between the XBox One and the PS4. Instead we can only get numbers for the 360.

I wonder next generation will the difference in sales be a large gap or much smaller. That is if suddenly sales mean something again when the reset button is pressed. Interesting times ahead.

kneon85d ago

I'm expecting the gap to be around the same or larger provided one of them doesn't do something completely stupid with the pricing in one direction or the other.

Abnor_Mal85d ago

There seems to be some murmurings that the PS5 will cost in the area of $550 for the disc model. With the digital edition a hundred dollars less.

Abnor_Mal85d ago

I stand corrected. Surprising there were no approvals for the article and no one commented at all.

Both articles are just based on rumor and no concrete numbers for total sales from MS to at least close out the generation.

No more sales wars, now its mau, subscription, and service wars.

Comparing PS4 to a last gen console ok lol

FallenAngel198485d ago
