The team hoped to create a console to compete with theSonys upcoming PlayStation 2, which was luring game developers away from the Windows platform.The team approached Ed Fries, the leader of Microsofts game publishing business at the time, and pitched their "DirectX Box" console based on the DirectXgraphics technology developed by Berkes team. Fries decided to support the teams idea of creating a Windows DirectX based console• TestingDuring development, the original DirectX box name was shortened to Xbox. Microsofts marketing department did not like the Xbox name, and suggestedmany alternatives.

    43. 43. What Stage of Product Cycle XBOX was • 2002 : Xbox’s introduction stage was stretched due to slow sales, no profit and dragging growth. Sony´s PS2 is two years in sale ahead and located at growth phase due to fast sales Nintendo´s GameCube behind PS2 but close to Xbox sales rate in introduction phase  2006 : Xbox360 selling was increased with Kinect launch. Referred to introduction phase Sony´s PS2 is located at maturity phase due to tremendous sales Nintendo´s GameCube way behind Xbox and Xbox 360 sales rate but in growth phase Xbox sales were declining with no profit scored. However, Xbox Live! is in growth phase captured 35m + subscribers for the service (billion $ revenue for Microsoft)

    48. 48. Weaknesses of Microsoft Xbox  Xbox Live! service requires broadband-access, but majority of European/Asian households are not yet broadband-ready.  Initially (2001), Microsoft focused more on Japan market that was already hitting lows because of boom in cellphone industry that delayed the launces in Europe.  Microsoft launched XBOX an year after Sony’s playstation2 & lost a golden opportunity to beat the competiation. By the time the competition arrived, Sony launched a number of improved titles including Gran Turismo 3  Microsoft could not retain the talent and its key founder left the company early.  Lack of broadband-access will not enable future revenues streams as Microsoft expects  Subscription of Xbox Live! requires gamers to provide credit card details which primarily adults can afford. Some (children,…) can not afford a credit card.  In Europe, €60 per annum or €6 per month for use of Xbox Live! Platform is little expensive. Moreover, subscription is automatically renewed and credit card user is automatically charged without permission that leads to user’s distress
