...they knew from day one that they were going to be dead in the whole. IIRC, even with the STARTING cost ($400, IIRC) they were losing somewhere in the range of $150 - $200 per unit sold. It's no suprise that they're in the whole with the X-Box. What did surprise them, however, is how horribly the X-Box was taken. :P Didn't surprise me one bit though. In fact, I was glad. >:D
We'll see what happens. Here's hoping MS does NOT get Vivendi.
