    This is interesting. It seems like a bad move, but Microsoft had to make it. A few weeks ago, a Microsoft employee spoke about the money being lost off of the Xbox despite the good amount of units they were selling due to production costs. Now, let's see what Sony does...

    This may also have to do with the fact that people are chopping up Xboxes to make a cheap computer and MS doesn't want this. They are like any other company that makes more than one thing they don't want one item to do it all they want to make people buy each thing they make. People putting a mod chip in and then installing Linux with it as well as a 250gig HD isn't what MS intended for their little baby. :drool:

    You can't really do much with a 5 gig HD computer, tho. The money's the main part, though.

    Interesting reply, canadia. heh

    The current speculation is for flash drives it seems, or some other internal memory storage I believe.
