Well it just shows us time and time again that the big corporates are in actual fact sharks. To them we are just another number, another statistic of the number of people that have bought there product... Guess we should be greatful that at least we got to have the Xbox 360 in SA, unlike its predecessor. But in all honest, I think we would be doing the same, money does make the world go round.
What it shows you is that this generation, every vendor "reacted" against the last generation. The Xbox 1's greatest weakness was the high cost of developemnt and production, the PS2's weakness was it low performance, The gamecube was completely ordinary.
