I think its a desprate attempt to try and boost sales and also stupid it will backfire with a loss of money.

It wouldnt surprise me that they would sell them below cost... they make huge profits from accessories and games. Alot of electronic retailers already sell alot of things (laptops, Desktops, TV's) below cost on a regular basis just because the margins are so high on the accessories.

Hypothetically speaking... lets say Microsoft (or any manufacturer) were ti sell sell the system to a point where they lose $20 for every system sold, they would still make enough money on Games, Accessories, Subscription Services (xbox live and playstation/wii store), etc. to makeup for the lost money. If they sell 1 game with every system, they would no longer be losing money (and come-on, who only has 1 game for their high-def gaming system)

Lots of people in japan at the PS3 launch only bought a PS3, because they were paid to wait in line.

It really doesnt matter how cheap the 360 is i wont buy one i made that mistake with the original xbox it was ?75 and Fable was ?25 so i thought bargain 3 years later i have less than 10 games on it and it just collects dust.
Forza is an ok racer not great but GT beats it hands down.
