Bill Gates Says the Xbox 360 Will Be the Most Reliable Console

For the current generation of gaming consoles, the Xbox 360 has several reputations. On the positive side, the Xbox 360 is the undisputed leader of online service and multiplayer, but on the negative side, it also holds a track record of being fairly unreliable. At one point, up to one-third of all Xbox 360 consoles experienced the hardware failure popularly known as the Red Ring of Death, which rendered the console unusable. While many from Microsoft’s entertainment and devices division have spoken on the Xbox 360’s reliability record, Bill Gates was mostly removed from commenting on the issue – until now. Speaking in a BBC Video interview, Gates revealed that it’s now Microsoft’s goal to make the Xbox 360 "the most reliable" console on the market.Source: DailyTech

Both Socom and Ghost recon go into first person, you won't find a serious ghost recon who plays in third person online.

Only 2 exclusives?

Resistance
Killzone
Haze
UT3
Socom
Time Crisis
Well you can cross out these things since they are also coming out for the 360:

Haze
UT3
Both will be coming out for 360 sometime this Summer.

And as for Socom It has always been a third person shooter. And Time Crisis I dont consider to be a first person shooter due to the fact that the camera moves for you.:laugh::laugh: Plus PS3 can keep Time Crisis as an exclusive because the gun controller SUCKED

But it is a ncessary goal is it not?

Microsoft is trying to show to the public that they can trust Microsoft not to have ant more problems with the 360. The fact that they are trying to overcome the big RROD hurdle issue shows that they at least have some spunk to try and come back :toast: As long as Microsoft doesnt charge us for any repairs at all with the 360 I think everything will be just fine.
