it's china, they use kids to make all of our shit. This way it's nice and cheap, i remember my 1st computer back in 1998 it cost 2000 bucks. Due to foreign outsourcing now computers only cost 400, that's a big difference. Also this article is biased becsue china also makes ps3 and wii's and sanu hates xbox to begin with.


A very interesting point you bring up! Maybe this whole thing is a but a hoax.

Of course. How else will high volumes of a product be made? Machines? No, that's WAY too expensive.


Glad you see it from my point of view.


As dead as most of us are, that is the only way to see it. Naivete in people leads them to so much heartache.


Ah, a fellow cynic. But seriously, it is a bit sad. Our innovation has become children in china.

Next there will be bionic, laborer children, which would solve many problems.

Yes, the crime is against the children, but the hypocrisy is Microsoft doing the deed-- puts Bill Gates philanthropic activities & educational charity foundations into questionable light!! (as to the xbox issue, well, we never got past nintendo toys)

The most they can do is picket line and bawl their asses off. People will do things how they want for the rest of time.

Truth. I miss violent protests

If the activists had any balls, they'd raid the factories. Though I can imagine that there would be a few assault rifles stowed away in said factories. They could also produce them there. A dual-purpose, self-defended factory. Now that's how to make a profit!

Full of bionic children and militarized workers? Almost as awesome as a dinosaur in a party hat.

I have an Xbox 360 myself and will naturally feel for all the child workers as I mutilate people online.

Well, those ungrateful sweatshop bastards are already living a better life than they would have been not working at the sweatshop.

You would be surprised at how many of them want to work at a sweatshop.
