Also, wii don't need to give all our money to M$, there is another company out there the name of which escapes me.
Are you really ready to hand Microsoft all of your money? How's that for a parting shot?
Put simply, does the additional profit Sony makes from contlling the launch and being able to screw customers on their own schedule exceed the losses from gamers who have finally had enough of their BS?

If the I/E offered any longer of a warranty, there's a good chance it would eat the cost. And with the potential failure rate for electronics, believe me if they start offering prices to account for losses due to defects, youd rather wait until you can just buy it from Scan.

I also disagree with the reasoning that the reason Britain is overly priced is because of warranty and like someone else has said, I've barely ever seen this so called "2 year minimum warranty" that you talk about.
