    Actually, Microsoft has been making a profit with the 360 as of late - there were even rumors of a possible price drop for last fall, but Microsoft has stated that they don't plan a price drop anytime soon... and with good reason.

    it really is considering what hardware is in it 3 processors at 3.2ghz each..well thats 400 big ones right there. don't get me wrong tho gunny i could say the same for the ps3(other than the 3 processors part..lol) allot of that hardware in the consoles are very expensive if you were to buy the hardware separately to build a extremely good gaming computer or something it would cost thousands of dollars.

    Well look at it this way - Microsoft are making a profit from each console they sell thus really the 360 is marked up so you are paying more...:grrhee:

    It depends when you saw them. Costs of manufacturing may have dropped.

    But it is moot anyway. Games always make the system.
