    Hiroshima didn't help the US rep there

    But I hope we see a "revolution"ary difference in ps3 sales

    The gamecube has survived way longer then anyone ever expected. I wasn't a fan for a long time, but they sucked me in with all the G rated games for the children. Not sure, but if it came down to a $300(?) Revolution or $700(?) ps3.......

    I bought an Xbox for the Halo games, but like most people I branched out into others. That's a very valid point. If Microsoft were to lock up more of the popular games it'd be good for clearing their inventory.

    I think the fact that it isnt coming out until over a year after the 360, and will cost $200 more when it finally does is a huge blow. I certainly would rather buy a 360 at this point even though I was planning on PS3.

    My PC > either though.

    I refuse to buy Blu-ray (and probably HD DVD) since both of those companies will limit when and where and how you can use it.

    I won't be buying Vista either, buying crap like this just chains you down to corporations even more (not saying we aren't already :P). You can keep your precious intellectual property all to yourself.

    Oh yeah Xbox 360 is def not going to "take over" any market. The only place Xbox sold out was the U.S. and Austraila, and even here it sold only around 300,000 units.

    Over its time the PS2 has sold close to 12,000,000.

    That being said I'm not interested in console gaming to the least, so they wouldn't be able to sell me anyway =)

    If ya'll dont remember the design of the 360.....

    The GPU has the 512mb of ram at really insane bandwidth.
    The GPU is also the chipset, so the CPU gets insane ram bandwidth.
    10mb EDO dram is built onto the r500 to be used for AA, AF, etc, so that the rest of the bandwidth isn't bothered by those things. Essentially it gets free AA and AF.

    To all who say sony will fail, they are a 70 billion dollar industry, on cnet reviews, sony takes the top 10 in just about every categroy that exists(best TV, cameras, recievers, dvd players, headphones, etc), psp sold 4 million units in the US alone, they own sony pictures which owns tons of television shows like seinfeld, king of queens, malcom in the middle, and movies like the da vinci code, pink panther, bac boys 2, mr. deeds, jerry maguires, top 20 semi conductors of the world, own alot of games like everquest, the matrix, tom raider, final fantasy, sony will not gao away..they own half of BMG music which owns columbia and epic and tons of other labels, they're friggen huge, forgot to mention sony computers (vaio), oh yea 150,000 employees worldwide...I just thought this information was kind of interesting for those who care..

    As for Sony losing money on console sales, the same thing happened when ps2 hit. I remeber reading that they lost 100 bucks a console for a while. PS3 will own your soul unless all this crap about no used games turns out to be true.

But i am more then positive the r500 has more graphics processing grunt then what is shown on games like FC:S
    Umm, no, the R500 doesn't include the Geometry shader. That's what stops it from being a true DX10 part. This is *why* it's a partial dx10 part.
    http://www.ukgamer.com/article.php4?id=322&page=1
    ATi have a distinct edge when it comes to designing their unified shader silicon in that they've already done it once for the X-Box360, though the 360's lack of geometry shader capability mean it's not a true DX10 part, and true DX10 will be the only kind of DX10 you'll get. Gone is partial precision, gone is "caps bits" which allowed a game or application to poll the graphics card for information on its capabilities, gone are any of the inconsistencies of previous DX incarnations. Either the hardware supports DX10 in its entirety or it's mot a DX10 part at all, it's that simple. That's not to say ATi, or anyone else in fact, can't include capabilities above an beyond what's called for by DX10, in fact ATi admitted to having done just that, it simply means that they won't be accessible from within DX10 and will need to be coded for individually by games developers, perhaps then eventually being absorbed into the next release.

    There's NOTHING it can do that the RSX cannot, other than have it's shaders switch on the fly. Therefore, there's nothing the Xbox360 can do that current, on the shelf PC's, cannot do.

    I think it just all depends on which HD format the will win if the HD DVD win then 360 wins. if the blue way then PS3

    i think PS3 will have better games than 360 but i also think that HD DVD will win over blue ray because its cheaper.
