    My first Xbox 360 the early release scratched my games then gave us the Red Ring. Sold it then bought another after 6 years I got the slim one it works fine that's why I don't buy early releases from Microsoft anymore.

    The launch price was actually Microsoft trying to help Sony out. it’s all economics — when there’s only 2 competitors in a market the one with the lowest price will win unless they’re both priced the same in which they will both flourish. With the Xbox 360 and Ps3 releases, the xbox was 400 and the playstation was 600. I think Microsoft was going to try and meet them in the middle with the next generation and Sony, knowingly or not threw Microsoft under the bus and launched at 400 — easily beating them out. To this day they are still feeling the burn, and sure there’s other reasons why playstation had a better launch (no one wanted kinect) but it also had a lot do with their starting prices.

    If you have man hands, then the Duke Xbox controller would be comfortable for you. I guess if you have flimsy feminine hands, it would be a burden to carry. I'm playing on PS4 now, so I wish I had the Duke controller rather than the awkward dual shock 4.
