By all accounts, the Xbox 360 should have been a disaster. Microsoft rushed the system to market, then had to backpedal when thousands (if not millions) of consoles were returned to stores or sent in for repairs. Normally, this sort of thing would cripple a product, yet the company continues to battle Sony for control of the living room. This, despite the infamous red ring of death controversy and the announcement that it planned to raise the price of Xbox Live.
This, of course, raises a potentially eye opening question: Why do we bother?
