I wonder if anyone tried the MMORPG-s 9Dragons, and 2Moons. Is there a big difference between the two?

Yo guys, I began the microsoft training to be a X-Box tech support agent today :)
For now, it's a pain in the ass. Interesting, but a pain in the ass anyway.

Did you know... that Microsoft loses $130 per each 360 sold? I sure as hell didn't!

They make it up in games, accessories and X-box Live.

Hmmm, still, after that fucking red ring error in XBox 360, Microsoft did lose a hell of money.

Any console, and since they were first made, has made companies lose money. So yeah, as Kaj said, games + accessories = where the profit comes from.

Ding ding ding! Correct!
Every game costs $0.50 They sell them for (average) $50. That's %10000 of benefits per game (without the developing costs, of course)
Each wireless controler? $7 Price on stores? 10 times that amount.

I'm learning quite a lot really. About the so-called ring of death, dashboard issues, suscriptions, refunds and the like :)

Yeah. The amount of profits companies reap on some things is pretty insane. All be it, some of the profit has to go into new ventures and R&D, but most of it just stockpiles if they are successful.

They scrapped the xbox quickly to never be seen again because it wasnt designed to be cost-efficient like the 360.

I knew there was something wrong with the RM300 ('bout 70+ USD) 360 controller for the PC...

So, I just watched Halloween the rob zombie remake yesterday.

...Is it so wrong to laugh at a dead body being dragged away?

Hmm, dragging by foot for 5-7 minutes... nothing funny about that unless the guy being dragged looked stoned.

Coos your never on xbox live.
It saddens me when you appear for a blip of a second and screw with my mind making me think your on.

Then I kill more people on xbox.

Man, Halloween rocked!

Any word out on whether Manhunt 2 is still being released somewhere around then? I've been going nuts over it and Guitar Hero 3 for a while now.

I heard Halloween sucked ass. It was described to me as such:
