During a conference call yesterday and after posting a loss of $31 million, Midway commented on the current drop of support by Microsoft and game publishers for the original Xbox. While praising Sony's and Nintendo's history of solid past-gen support, the company said that Xbox is "going to be pretty difficult to certainly sell any new games for" after the holiday season.
It is only logical that Microsoft is focusing on a potential money maker, the 360, after incurring so many losses on the Xbox. But is a lack of support for a successful past-gen console (in terms of units sold) still abnormal and bothersome for gamers?
