Microsoft BetaNews writes: "Microsoft executives and product managers -- Chairman Bill Gates, above all of them -- showed great technology vision for the new millennium. The company was right about so many trends to come but, sadly, executed poorly in bringing too many of them to market. Microsoft's stiffness, perhaps a sign of its aging leadership, consistently proved its foible. Then there is arcane organizational structure, which has swelled with needless middle managers, and the system of group competition".

first off two words: RED RING!

second off by the time you pay for the proprietary harddrive and a year of xbl you might as well have bought a PS3.

finally it is a second rate piece of hardware that microsoft
actually admits was not intended to compete against the PS3 but against the PS2, a nearly decade old console. Its impossible for it to win either fight. Eventually the xbox will die to the curse of every one of their other products: piracy.
