That happened a long time ago, they don't even count the white Xbox's i believe, since they do not sell them. I also highly doubt everybody White console broke and was bought exactly on Black Friday.

I am speechless.

Really, I have no words to express my disbelief.

How can people buy 750,000 units 7-year-old hardware??

This sheds light on some extremely scary things, like the fact that MS/Sony don't even need to bother with next gen until at least 2016. Why would any company sink money into R&D/production when current-gen consoles are still selling like cupcakes after 7 effing years?!

And this is happening while Kepler/Haswell are on the horizon, making PC's ~20-30x better than consoles...and we play console ports that use the same goddamn engine and STILL manage to push shoddy framerates making people say "uh oh, time to blow $400 on a GPU upgrade!"

Cost,Simple. Xbox is around $200 is easy to use and all you need is to take 2 seconds to make an account and you have access to large online communities, whilst PC, Good Gaming is $1000 or more 5x already and can come with a lot of problems which the user shouldn't need to hassle with.

Why you so mad? Everybody knows that console will last 2 more years at most. Probably most people where double dipping before thet get another RROD?

I was thinking about getting a PS3, but spend all my money on Steam instead. redface.gif

I agree with you. These crap consoles are killing us PC gamers. I don't include Nintendo with said crap consoles for obvious reasons. 750,000 idiots lol. Exclude OCN members who purchased during black friday. Only because you're OCN tongue.gif

Nintendo sold 400,000 units in first week.

I actually think the PC gamers are what killed PC gamers. You guys seriously complain too much and I'm a PC gamer. I only got my xbox and ps3 for exclusives like forza, halo,uncharted and MGS. Really though why would I make a game for whining PC gamers when I could just make it for console gamers who would actually enjoy the game?

Never had a system fail me, although I am a serious abuser of canned air and air compressor when it comes to my electronics. I cannot stand dust, I go after it like it stole from me. Glad to see the 360 still getting some love, will have to pick one up eventually. No failures but man, I have sold atleast seven of them over the years lol.

Buying a old console when a new one is on the verge of coming out, Logic.
