Xbox 360

Üks kord varem kirjutasin ka uuest xboxist, aga nüüd kui ta päevakese väljas on olnud, tuleb välja et Microsoft on valmis teinud käki, mis on veel ebastabiilsem kui Windows(!). Kaks suht järjestikust uudist slashdotist:

fmwap writes "There have been several postings over at Xbox-scene complaining of crashing Xbox's on new games, with default settings on single player. Crashes on Xbox Live and on startup have been reported too, and Project Gotham Racing 3 crashes before finishing the first lap. Screenshots and Video are available showing the crash."

ahess247 writes "BusinessWeek has taken a look at the insides of the XBox 360 and with the a little help from market researcher iSuppli determined that Microsoft is continuing its tradition to taking a big loss on the console in hopes of making a profit on games. From the article: "An up-close look at the components and other materials used in the high-end version of the Xbox 360, which contains a hard drive, found that the materials inside the unit cost Microsoft $470 before assembly. The console sells at retail for $399, meaning a loss of $71 per unit -- and that is just the start. Other items packaged with the console -- including the power supply, cables, and controllers -- add another $55 to Microsoft's cost, pushing the loss per unit to $126."

vot nii. ostate endale ka? naeraks teie üle :)

Linkidele ligi pääsemine, vähemalt täna, on enam kui kahtlane kuna nad on postitatud maailma ühele loetuimale lehele!!!!
