Pro-G add up the "true" (according to them) price of owning an Xbox360:

4. A game or two. Which is what it's all about really. No good opening your brand spanking new 360 on Christmas morning without a game to play on it. Check our feature on the top ten most important 360 launch titles for more info. I'm most interested in Perfect Dark Zero, Rare's return from exile. Hopefully it will turn out to be the console seller Halo was for the Xbox. Most retailers will do some kind of bundle deal including a game or two. But with next-generation titles expected to be between a ?5 and ?10 more expensive than current games, deals won't be cheap. Taking a base amount, add at least ?45 on for a game - ?90 for two. I don't have much time this Christmas, so I'll just be getting PDZ, but feel free to disagree. Cost: ?44.99
Known and always a symptom for every console ever since the days of the bundled-in launch title (Altered Beast, Super Mario Bros., Sonic the Hedgehog) died out... but the point is taken. The same point can be made, of course, for the PS3 and Revolution.
