Xboxed !

When Microsoft released the Xbox console a couple of years back there was widespread speculation that this would be the entry of MS into the wider context of digital consumer electronics ....something which never happened.
The same set of speculations also arose when the Media Center was also relaeased with a lot of fanfare....which again never lived up ....

Now with a warc chest of more than 2 billion USD ,MS is going to Slug it out one last time and the timig couldnt have been better .....
Sony is struggling with internal issues and corporate transformation .....
they are more than a year away from the launch of PS 3 ...
and considering the broadband expansion the Xbox would be a more preferred console expecially for the millions of gamers in Japan,Korea and China where the maximum of online gaming is happening..

Will microsoft settle the issue once and for all ...of who will own the digital home entertainment domain ?

All indicators are pointing towards a MS victory though there are some potential poopers
