ugly but i hope it can lay on its side.
It's better-looking and smaller than the current Xbox, IMO. You can change the faceplates if you're that concerned with the look. And yes, you can lay it on its side. They're claiming full-time HD output, which ought to be nice. And wireless controllers are sweet as well.

Who caught the goofy MTV intro show last night? (I did. Looks good.)

the controller looks like it still sucks. why can't they make a good one that fits your hands better. Hell I like an NES controller better than the Xbox thing.

Oh baby, cannot wait.

Ill be looking forward to the HD output. We've got a 42' plasma sitting in the lounge room that we can play xbox on!!! Theres latency between the controller input and the TV. Very frustrating :rant:

Rumor mill says that the PS3 is actually more powerfull and that big devolopers are moving from the xbox 360 to the ps3 because of that power for exsclusive titles. The one thing that microsoft has that sony seemingly cant compete with is halo, which I think, sux (the game).

These guy sums alot of my thinking on the subject up:

Xcited About That Xbox




God of War looks plenty good to me on my antique PS2.
Is it already time for the next round of consoles to launch? It seems like just yesterday I sat in the freezing rain all night in order to secure a PlayStation 2 on launch day. But that's hyperbole for another day. Perhaps this is just a sign of my old age, but I'm still almost completely satisfied by the graphical capacities of the current generation of consoles. So when it comes to the new cutting-edge graphics of the Xbox 360...whatever. Games like Burnout 3: Takedown and God of War still blow my hair back. Microsoft could wait another year and I'd still be plenty happy this Christmas.

I can't help but be reminded of the Dreamcast scenario here, where Sega saw its console sales eradicated by the mere rumor that the PlayStation 2 would be coming anytime soon. But Microsoft is in infinitely better shape than Sega was when it launched its swan-song console. Nonetheless, I question the wisdom of launching the console so far ahead of the competition. Arguably, the Xbox's biggest strength was its technical superiority over the PlayStation 2, which is something Microsoft throws into jeopardy by giving Sony a whole year to further develop its next-generation platform. Just food for thought.

...and, I predict it will be a non-issue with MS putting out the 360 due to the architecture not being feasible for Sony to use. I'm not a hard-core techy, but I'm sure MS wouldn't realease something 18 months before their competition if their design could be easily copied- as in Sony doesn't have the manufacturing resources MS does. Historically, MS rose to power that way (by copying Apple, so the story goes), and aren't about to be leap-frogged in the same manner in any aspect of competition.

I heard the same hyperbole from Sony with the PS2 - "It will be 10 years before developers can max out this system" and "It's so advanced, developers are having a hard time harnessing all that power" when the fact was, conventionally it was restrictive. drama :rolleyes:

...anyway, I have most of the highest rated games for the XBox, and more than a few are exclusive. What's Sony slapped down on the table that's been a must have "exclusive" to Sony's Platform? ToeJam and Fuckwit? please...

well GTA was.
I own all the systems and i definitly play my ps2 WAY more. I just think the games are better, and the controller is perfect! I think the reason why they have been exclusive to the X is cuz the system is more powerfull and can run certain games that the ps2 cant, like ninja gaiden.

I still think it is WAY to early to release new systems anyway.

ps. Toejam and Earl for the genesis is one of the best games ever

My one buddy already traded his old Xbox and all his games in for the new one. :idunno: I didn't like the first Xbox, not sure if I'll buy the next one either. No matter what games I tried for the console, I just couldn't get into it. I played Forza racing last night for about an hour, watched my buddy play for a little while too; it just doesn't do anything for me :idunno:

I have an xbox and love it for it's HD support. Since HD is a REQUIREMENT for all 360 titles, I'll be pre-ordering it when it becomes available. As far as Sony PS3, I'm completely agnostic - if I like what it has I'll buy that too.
