Isn't the X-box360 just a home PC in a smaller box and cheaper? I'm a sony man through and through.

The GFXs look great on what I have seen,but I have also read that it is just like Win98,in that it will crash every so often

Umm... Which will be the better ?
Well the Playstation won the last round due to the sheer number of quality games available to it,and I think it will happen again

TTT I totaly agree with about sony winning the war.

10 Things you didn't know abou the new consoles

1. The PS3 and Xbox 360 will be able to output images at HDTV Quality.

2. All three consoles will be able to connect to the internet for online gaming.

3. The PS3 will include a BlueRay Drive, allowing it to play High-Definition DVD Films when they go on sale.

4. Two version's of the xbox 360 will be on sale, one with a Hard Drive and one without.

5. The Xbox will be able to act as an extender box for Windows Media Center PCs.

6. The PS3 looks the most powerfull out of all three consoloes.

7. Nintendo's Revolution will have motion-sensitive controller.

8. The PS3 and the Revolution will support Bluetooth, but the Xbox 360 will not.

9. All three consoles will be backwards compatible with previous machines from the same manufacturer.

10. the Xbox 360 will have interchangeble face plates so you can customise the look of the unit.

The good thing with the PS3 & the 360 is the will force down the price of the new types of DVD players that on there way in.

I knew Sony were pushing the Blueray dvd drive,but just as that format starts to take off,there is another which increases the amount of storage again
VHS and Betamax all over again............Only one loser, and thats us the buying public Evil or Very Mad

When the xbox360 is released and feedback starts to flow in, Sony will take all of what they see into account and make sure that they encorporate all the details in the PS3. Sony playstation will always out perform xbox, though this view will obviously vary as everyone will have their own opinion.

I understand that 2 games Call of Duty® 2 and Project Gotham Racing® 3 are the best of the lot, so far.
Both are for HDTV.

The console can't be had here in the States, the waiting list is months long and they are gathering dust in Japan where they aren't interested in them.
Why MS put the in three locations at one time is beyond me.

The overheating and the scratching are the only two problems I have heard of also.

WARNING Watch Out:
The X Box 360 has a tendency to Overheat and Freeze up.

I'm Not getting one until the design flaw is fixed.

The power supply (separate) is overheating, some of the blogs are reporting that if you "hang" it up so it gets better air circulation it doesn't freeze up the box.

I'm sure they (MS) will be replacing them but I would wait also.

9. All three consoles will be backwards compatible with previous machines from the same manufacturer.

This issue has caused much speculation in the past.
If this is true, the consumer will be the winner due to stiffer competition.

If you're into car games, I'd go with RM's suggestion - Project Gotham!!
Guaranteed no boredom... utter frustration, if anything. I have the old, first edition and I'm still stuck at roundabout 29%.
If a new edition of V8-Supercars is available - ❤️

I know a couple of people that have an xbox360 and they haven't had an overheating problem. i think it depends on how much you hammer your machine too.

The graphics look simply amazing, ive never seen anything like it.

The ps3 doesn't look like its going to be out in the UK until the end of next year, so for now im starting on the 360 and we shall see what happens later!!

Thanks for your replies guys

guys, i now have my xbox 360 and i have to say that it is awesome!!

I dont even have a high definition tv, but on a normal TV it still looks amazing.

Call of Duty 2 is the best game, it is just so realistic and the graphics are superb!!

Playstation who????
