Enderle said games for the Xbox will likely price in the $30 to $60 range.

Microsoft said that between 600,000 and 800,000 Xbox units would hit shelves the day the product launches. At that time, between 15 and 20 games should be available for the system. Another 80 exclusive games are currently in development.

Technology issues

Although Enderle isn\'t as concerned as he typically would be for a Microsoft launch, he did say that the console\'s soon-to-be obsolete Intel Pentium 3 chip could be detrimental.

"There could be a problem with how well the system will age," he said, noting that the Xbox is based on P3 technology. "Next year the product will look really old."



tech issues!!!! haha i thought it was technologically advanced!!!!!!!!
wow.. now the 300$ price tag has been confirmed... i can go and rat on bizoEE\'s @$$!!!!!!

It\'s the exact same issue every console faces. And since XB has a seperate gpu, it\'s irrelevant to what consoles are usually measured by, graphics.

Why you wanna turn this negetive? This was a great and happy day, just as the next few are. Don\'t sour it. Especially because of what the Market Watch site says... WTF do they know about games?
