Default 360 install base set to surpass Original Xbox this month.

Ut oh where are all the doom and gloomers now?

MS is just hitting the sweet spot price wise.

I would like a comment from Kalim please. 360 is tearing shit up this gen from here on out. NXE and 199 is likely to get them a chunk of the casual cats to boot.

Between this, Gears selling 2million in a weekend and NXE launching, I have a feeling that MS's game division is going to have a big holiday party

Well, I don't think it's surprising. I mean, price matters, duh. It isn't like we didn't see this coming, is it?

The Gears/now at $199 ads are a nice one-two punch.

good for MS, bad for consumers supporting such a crappy built console.

I'm not saying it's surprising, but I think if you look back from 2001 all the way to now, you have to imagine that MS is proud of what they've done with their console aside from RROD. It's a landmark thing for them. They've taken down the Xbox, and they did it in three years, and there's another two years of life to go. I think they can shed the image they had 5 years ago, and now they'll be free of it soon.
