Meh, I can't believe anyone would buy a launch Xbox, after the last disaster, it took 4 whole years to fix RROD and disk scratching problems...
Anyone that thinks Microsoft rushed out console was in gamers best interest, is frankly a total moron. The Xbox's DVD drive and lack of standard HDD has held this gaming generation back, $300 every 5 years to play online.
Sony had the right idea (and gamers interests at heart), release when it was feature complete and reliable.
I just wish the American media stop telling American consumers to support the American console, when it's clearly not in gamers best interests to do so.
