    Who evers idea it was to release the xbox 360 in Japan in the world wide release should be sacked. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know it would fail. If microsoft used reverse psychology and said it wasn't selling the 360 in Japan they probably would have sold like hot cakes when the Japanese ordered from other countries.

    Ebay have bought youtube as it is competition to google video. Youtube has been bought for a good price considering its only a few months old and I bet it only cost a few thousand to set up. As for the N Korea nuclear test it makes you wonder how they managed to get hold of the plutonium to do it.

    Google better not amalgamate Youtube into Google video. Hopfully they'll leave things the way they are or even make some improvements.

    Someone was going to buy them eventually, I guess Google is one of the better candidates.

    What about the copyright crap? That means no more TV episodes to watch, and much more difficult to get a good music video.

    Perhaps these two events are related...somehow? [​IMG]

    And yeah, to expand on what has been said in many different places, somebody would have eventually bought YouTube. Google was just ensuring that it wasn't any of its competitors to do so.

    Youtube is an extremely inefficient site, so here's to Google. Hope they can make it better. Bet those 3 guys who started youtube in san mateo are sitting happy. 2 years in and they rake in 1.6 billion, wow. easy. money.

    lol, what? yay for coherency [​IMG]

    ms = usa , sony = japan - the 360 will never sell in asian markets as it should. just the way it will always be. But, ms doesnt need the asian markets to own sony, all that matters is the nexgen console war on U.S. soil, I think sony really has their work cut out for them this time.

    Google isn't stupid, they'll migrate Google video into the You Tube brand and functionality, not the other way round. Else they wouldn't have had to buy it. I'm pretty glad Google is the one who got it, imagine Microsoft or Rupert Murdoch or some other idiot messing with it... [​IMG]

    I think stryk said that all microsoft needs to do to win the console war (or stay in the lead?) is to focus JUST on the U.S.

    I think...
