Microsoft invests in advertising for the xbox

Microsoft has now invested US $ 500 million in advertising for Microsoft's upcoming game console 'Xbox'. As far as the hardware is concerned, the following facts are already known:

  • The xbox should run with a Pentium III processor 600 Mhz
  • The supposedly immense graphics power should come from one Chip from NVIDIA
  • an 8 gigabyte hard drive
  • 64 megabytes of RAM
  • a DVD drive
  • an Ethernet interface with 100 Mbit/s for fast Internet access
The game console is due to come onto the market in autumn 2001. More precise facts directly from Microsoft are available here. Whether the many advertising will help them to assert themselves against strong competitors such as Sony's PlayStation 2?
