No one wants a 360 - New comment on Microsoft FY06Q4 Results

Lazlo has left a new comment on your post "Microsoft FY06Q4 Results":

I think - like with the 360 - MS is going to surprise alot of people with this.

The main surprise with the 360 is how few people are interested in owning one. In the months since the console launched, there have been fewer Xbox 360s sold than any other current Big 3 console or handheld except the GameCube. If it can't even compete with the five-going-on-six-year-old PS2 (which has outsold the 360 month-to-month since launch except for a blip in April when 360 supplies opened up), the bloodshed when it's also competing with PS3 and the Wii will be truly entertaining.

(I think plenty of people wanted a 360 back in December. That cooled off and we missed an opportunity. Comparing PS2 buyers and 360 buyers is mixing demographics given the price points. So, once the PS3 is out: we'll see. Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if the Wii is a big success, depending on the games.)
