No real breaking news (and it is kind of long), but I like the line about XBox Live being a 1.2 billion dollar a year cash cow for MS. Link (http://www.usatoday.com/life/cyber/tech/2002/06/04/xbox2.htm)
It's also good to see the XBox getting more and more mainstream press.

It's funny, but it never occurred to me that MS would turn a profit on XBOX Live. I just figured it would serve as a loss-leader to sell consoles and games, or break even at best.

I hope it's true. It's one way they can make money and support the system even if piracy runs rampant.

Since E3 alot has changed ,, Sony didn't have anything really all that exciting ,,,shinobi.. and I thought it looked dumb Gamecube will do better than sony , because people like playing games they have played before like Zelda and Mario, Sony had Nothing like I said ,,, I can't find one sony title I like,,,oh wait theres one game coming out with a Heavy Metal soundtrack that sounded cool, I think by jan 2003 Xbox will take the huge Climb up to be second against Nintendo, as More and more people go Xbox and Gamecube and more and more people realize Sony is Old Gen gaming and Xbox and Gamecube are Next gen,

No problem. Also if you ever run out of toilet paper it's handy to have a newspaper around.
