Default 360 on track to sell over a million in December!

If this actually happens, the console war is over for this generation. Well, at least in North America. Which is the market that matters most.

Great news. I'm looking at the xbox now as my first HD DVD player. But I wouldn't pick one up until January most likely.

For $200, I'm going to go on record in saying that it's the best value in the history of home video entertainment.

It's inexpensive, not "cheap". It's actually an excellent HD DVD player. And once you get the HD DVD bug, you won't stop buying them!

The 360 has been cleaning up in the UK as the Wii is in short supply and the PS3 is nowhere to be seen until March. I do wonder how the 360 will fare once the PS3 launches though...

I can't imagine it being much different than here. The local BB guys say the XBOX 360s are selling like hotcakes since the Wii and PS3 aren't available. The only other thing that is HOTTER than HOT is the DS.

Also, along with lack of availabilty of competing consoles, the 360 has a great library of games for gamers to actually PLAY. The Wii and PS3 can't claim more than a couple. That's a huge advantage.

There's never been a better time to buy a 360, as some of the bundle deals available are awesome. Sorta makes me wish I hadn't bought one in July, but whatever. Great console.

I agree, trying to find a DS here is a nightmare (especially the pink ones that have been lapped up by wives/daughters/partners etc!)

i highly reccomend the HD drive for 360, it's super cheap, outputs full 1080p and upconverts SD DVDs to 1080p, though you don't get that HD sound, dolby digital plus is fine with me.

just remember to use VGA cables, even if your tv takes component 1080p, because of crappy hollywood copyright bullshit you must use VGA to get 1080p HD resolution, otherwise it goes down to 1080i.
