It is always a good idea, particularly for XBox-
To have plenty of spares in stock.
Looks like UK launch day for the Xbox 360 S on Friday was a commercial hit, with retailers selling out shipments within hours of opening. Now they are reporting difficulties in re-stocking the redesigned console, according to the games site Electronic Theatre. So either they got the estimates of demand wrong, or much less …
sorry but i have no reason to upgrade or buy a new console. i have the 360 elite 120gb model and it only suffered 1 red ring which i wasnt happy about so if it happens again i will not be buying a new 360 ever il be moving back to sony once my 360 blows up. if its covered under warrentry then its fine but after the warrentry goes then the console will probably end up in the bin the games will end up been traded in for sony games.
That almost all those sales are to existing Xbox owners replacing old models and purely because the old model was so rubbish in terms of reliability.
What do you base that assumption on? Why would any sensible person (therefore xbox fanbois not included) buy a effectively the same thing in a new box because it *might* be more reliable?
Unless their previous xbox had completely failed, which I doubt is most of the buyers of the redesigned xbox.
