Well how can it possibly be good or positive ?
Wii would drop faster, if at all, if MS stuck to their higher specs.
Based on what the author says , the comments from the original story aren't favorable. That's bad press !
MS has been hyping this thing for over a year, talking specs and capabilities. Now a few months before release they are downgrading the specs and capabilities so they can save a buck on manufacturing costs. Now it won't be able to do all the things they said it would initially. How do you spin that positively ? And then to boot, its suggested they could offer an higher end version later ? That's just ridiculous.
This makes MS look like idiots and Sony and nintendo are going to feast on this story.
It's also going to generate negative gossip among gamers.
