Yeah this is the headline I wake up this morning. According to Amazon all the Xbox 360 models have been discontinued by the manufacturer.
So has Microsoft abandoned the console idea and handed victory over to Nintendo or Sony? Yeah like that’s going to happen.
There have been rumblings recently that Microsoft were preparing to release some new upgraded consoles and now due to better than expected sales over Christmas they have run into a shortage problem before the new ones are announce (probably at GDC)
So what are these new consoles going to include? Blu-Ray? Again I doubt it, I would just suspect that the new ones will have 65nm CPU and GPU’s and will come bundled with a $50 price cut. However due to exchange rate fluctuations the Arcade is only going to drop down to R2500 but at least it’s something.
Oh and they should once again be more reliable than the last batch
