But how Microsoft prices the Xbox will be key, said Florian Pihs, assistant vice president of the market research firm Analysys.
“Microsoft has to choose whether to go for better software protection or if they’re going to charge more for the Xbox because there are already some gray imports,” he said, adding that most firms launching games expect them to trigger piracy.
Expects it to trigger piracy? What? This analyst needs to be fired. Xbox360 games sold in China are currently ALL PIRATED. You can't find legit copies. Duh.
