Microsoft XBOX 360

What do you guys thiink of what has been revealed so far. Are any of you planning to buy one or are you waiting for the PS3? I must say the specs of it looks absolutely amazing, 3.2 GHz PowerPC processor with 3 cores, wow!.
And take a look at some of the screenshots. Look at these unreal tournemant 2007 ones: http://media.xbox360.ign.com/media/7...31/imgs_1.html the detail is truly stunning.
I must say whatever I feel about MS's operating systems this xbox 360 looks impressive. Depending on when it is released in UK I may consider getting one. If the whole package (games, consle, accessories etc.) offer good value for money I don't see why my hard-earned cash shouldn't go in that direction, even if it is ms.

Oh wow [yawn][/yawn] ... whats the point comparing a tri core 3.2 ghz cpu to a 8 cell system with total performance of a teraflop. heh, i know i sound like a die-hard sony fan, but imo the xbox-360 just dont cut it. it is nothing revolutionary... we'll just wait and see which system comes up as the superior one.

I think it's much to early to tell. No way we can make comparrisons yet. All I was saying is that the 360 does look impressive in it's own right.
oh and btw, personally I would like to see sony come out on top

Heh, i wonder if xbox has bsod or something similar, i heard one happened to gates as he was demonstrating the next gen direct-x tools to some developers.

I second that *YAWN*. I don't care if it can do my taxes while yodeling "I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy", it's still made by Microsoft, which means I'm still not going to shell out my hard-earned cash for it.

Problem is that such LOD is possible only if you have HDTV, plain old TV is only capable of 768x576 of something like that...

Well I hae an XBOX atm, and as long as current XBOX games can play on XBOX 360 I will be getting one. Now keep in mind I also have a PS2, I'm just one of those that buy pretty much every console that comes out. Except for Gamecube I mean come on Pikman or w/e. lol. I like not seeing very many if any games come out that I can not play at home. So I buy them all. I wish that it wasn't M$ that was getting my money, but in the end what I am payng for is MY entertainment. Until a system comes out that can play all games from all consoles, I have to keep buying from Sony and M$.

I have a PS2, Gamecube, GameBoy Advance SP, Nintendo DS, and a two-toned dusty SNES, and out of all that the only systems I've used regularly in the last 6 months are the Gamecube and the DS, for Animal Crossing and Super Mario 64DS respectively. My PS2 is a glorified DVD player.
I will have to be very impressed before I buy a console from this next generation. So far none of the games I've seen are impressive enough, and I have yet to see Nintendo's offering. Sony is beginning to lose my faith, and that's significant because every piece of home electronic equipment I own (more or less) is Sony. In the past it was a name that stood for quality. Recently it just stands for "use OUR format or else!"

Sitting in my entertainment center is damn near a musem of consoles. Nintendo (the REAL one), Sega Genisis, Sega CD, SNES, DreamCast, Nintendo 64, PS1, PS2, and my XBOX. Like a moron I sold my Atari about 8 years ago. Regretted it everyday since. Next to the entertainment center is a very large bookshelf with nothing but games on it, too many to even consider naming. On weekends I like to go to GameStop and browse through the old Nintendo and SNES games for titles I don't have, pick up one , maybe two. Then come home and time travel back. What's truely sad are the times I look at the vast collection and think about how much money has been spent, and realise it's almost enough for a down payment on a house.
