So bill gates spent $500,000,000 on the whole XBox system from start to finish. What are your expectations for what we'll make off off the system? (He must know that he'll get more than $500,000,000 in return or it's not called a profit!) :rolleyes:

... isn't it already told that he wouldn't make a profit untill they sell like 1.1 million consoles?

<P> that would make sense. cause do the math then!
1.1 million consoles, each $500 US (around) = $550,000,000 US </P> <P> now he spent $500,000,000 on the system. So that'll leave him with only $50,000,000 US in profits!) Thats a lot. That'll surely give him a huge tax return! lol </P>
