    Here's what I see happening: Xboxs with the infringing technology are banned, Microsoft releases new versions with alternative technology, life goes on.

    Or nothing happens at all. Ruling will be overturned by mid-June.

    Eh, that's probably the realistic scenario of what will happen.

    Hmm... so when they say this:

    That must mean that Halo and Gears of War are coming to the Wii and PS3, right?
    AMIRITE?
    AMIRITE?

    They'd settle out of court if it ever got really serious.

    These realizations are good & all, but I think I'd rather panic irrationally for the time being.

    That's just stupid and uniforcible because it violates a whole hell of a lot of -for lack of a better term- free trade laws. Oh and they can have my XBox360 when they take it from my cold dead hand. Its the only system I own or will own. Wii has no games I want to play and I hate Playstation 3.

    If Microsoft was ruled against then they couldn't sell any new consoles.
    There's no way they could round up all the consoles that have been sold.
    That's tens of millions of consoles.

    Interesting but that is about it. Microsoft has or surely will have soon a plan in place for the worst case scenario, that being they cannot sell any more 360s in the US.

    That plan if i had to guess would be rushing its next gen system out which may or may not backfire on them, as personally i think that is what happened with the 360s the rushed them out knowing full well about of the over heating issues.

    I will wait and see what happens on this.

    Tens of millions? That's a bit optimistic. With all the RRODs I'm thinking there are maybe 47 working 360's in the entire world...
