    Gates: New Xbox has chance to be No. 1

    The next generation of Microsoft's Xbox gaming console, due later this month, will give the world's largest software maker a chance to overtake gaming business leader Sony, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates asserted on Monday.

    "Our goal in the last generation was to be in the game," Gates told reporters. "We came out of this round a strong No. 2."

    Speaking at a meeting of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, Gates said that the newest version of the Xbox, code-named Xenon, would have features that will make the device a more versatile tool for games, music, video and pictures in the living room.

    Gates also emphasized that Xenon will take advantage of the growing availability of televisions and content in high-definition format, which allows clearer pictures to be displayed on large, wide screens.
    What's ahead for Windows

    Microsoft is planning release details of its next generation Xbox on May 12 in an MTV special, ahead of a key gaming conference later this month where Sony is also expected to talk about its successor to the PlayStation 2, its current generation console and market leader.

    "What we've got in this (next round), at some significant financial cost, was the right to play again with great credibility," Gates said. "So now people are looking at the two companies at a pretty much equal basis."

    Asked if Microsoft would be able to beat Sony with Xenon, Gates said that several top employees involved with Xenon had promised Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer that Xenon would beat Sony and that he welcomed that "competitive dynamic."

    Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft jumped into the gaming console business in 2001 with the Xbox, spending more than $2 billion to develop and market the machine, which it expects to become a major source of profit and revenue.

    Sim, vamos ver se a Xbox2 vai conseguir destronar a Ps3, porque se continuar assim, prejuizo atrás de prejuizo.

    É de lembrar que sairam números acerca deles, parece que deu menos que no ano passado. Mas mesmo assim perderam dinheiro, axo que 127 milhões de euros devido á consola.

    Mas como a (Gates)microsoft é mesmo um poço sem fundo de €.....
