Just my thoughts,

It went really I think. All the major chain stores are stocking it and most have huge display area's. I picked up mine at 9am launch day. I guess we also need to remember that it's an expensive item to buy. A lot of people I know always wait till a price drop. I did that with both PS1 and DC. But soon as I saw the spec movies etc I knew I had to get one launch day.

I think in time xbox will blow away PS2 here in Australia. Once you experience graphics and gameplay like Rallisport and Halo there aint no competition. I look forward to a good few years service my xboxy goodness.

We have heaps of radio tv and poster ads everywhere. Biggest launch Iv'e ever seen.
