Not that I think this will slow down GZFX one bit, but CNBC just reported that that several reports have been coming in about XBOX bugs. Some folks are getting error messages while they are playing & some systems reportedly crashed althogether. MS is claiming these are isolated reports.
IMO, this MS will get on the PR wagon & squelch any moanings about bugs. MSNBC also played a clip of the kooks busting through the door and trampling some people at the Grand Forks, ID Walmart at opening this morning. I don't think anyone will think twice about buying an XBox if they've already made up their minds. Only glitch I see in Xbox sales is if the bug reports become widespread, but that's not likely in Nov or Dec since most of the systems sold won't be opened 'til Xmas.
In any case, Xbox is only a portion of GZFX biz, and I think that this Xmas season's rollout at CC, purchase of game rental inventory, and UK expansion will put us in a good place to begin 2006.
Can I get a h@ll yeah?
