I've been closely monitoring all the "next-gen" consoles that are upcoming or out (Xbox 360). I've been paying attention to the tech and the games that are going to be released on all three consoles. The Xbox 360 is ok for now. I have yet to see but a few games that are truly considered "next-gen" for me. Upcoming for the 360 is the HD-DVD drive which is going to please many HDTV consumers and the possibility of Microsoft releasing a DVI or HDMI cable for us too. The Playstation 3 Is really disappointing with a price that is almost double of the Xbox 360 with the only hardware differences being that of extra memory and built-in blu ray. The PS3 is really not showing much here as there are only one or two good games and the footage of them are only pre-rendered, showing what the console is "capable" of. I didn't get sold to on that one, and a price tag of nearly 800 dollars is just insane considering the lower end model doesnt even have everything to make the experience. (built in HDMI only to the higher end? gg sony you screwed over your fanboys). The only things that would save the PS3 is for a great lineup of games or the built-in Blu ray (Bluray is expected to outdo HD-DVD for the technology and bigger disc space, yet bluray of course shall be much more pricier, 50 dollars a movie anyone?)The Nintendo Wii really caught my attention, the way the console works is really innovative. Just go out and watch any preview for the games. I am especially looking forward to the sword fighting game utilizing the Wii's motion sensitive controller (swinging for real anyone?) and of course the basic tennis games and such. The Nintendo really could come out to be the victor of this generation of consoles, it is definately one I'm keeping my eye out for.

Nintendo is definitely on my purchase list when it arrives on shelves, I will be pre-ordering it shortly. Last I checked the price tag hadn't been set but was estimated to be cheaper than both the XBOX and PS3. The controller is a sound idea that brings new innovation to the console market. You are able to use a standard controller also if you wish that I really like the design for. Reminescent of the SNES controller, very nice . PS3 will never be purchased initially by me as the price tag is extremely high for the use I would have for it. RPGs... I'll pass. XBOX360 doesn't hold a candle to computers, the only reason I buy a console is to get something that I can't get on a PC. XBOX is a simple man's pc and a crappy one at that. I'll be saving my pennies for an upgrade for FarCry 2 kkthxbai.

lol @ gaystation descriptions on ebay too.

"Processor faster than a 5.0GHz supercomputer like a Intel Duo PC!!!"

and

"256MB of 3.2GHz Memory. Fastest ever made in the world!"

but the best

"60GB for over 100 hours of porn!"



and the sad part is you have to be as ignorant as the people posting those descriptions to even buy one. keke

I'm actually going to downgrade mine...break out a chunk of the storage in my system and put it into my NAS project. 1TB is more effective in a central storage place than in the orange beast.
