Default Which next genration video game platform will you get?

I personally tend to side with sony, because they throw all these specs at you, even if they are irrelevent, but whatever. You opinions below, but do not make any unsupported claims like the xbox360 web site and Major(doofus).

***sorry about spelling errors above.*****

I am bias as I lean toward the PS3, but the 360 clearly wins when it comes down to number crunching:

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/617/617951p1.html

Check out the 360 here. Good review (video media) on the actual retailed system:

http://media.xbox360.ign.com/article...00/vids_1.html

The major hype right now is of course, the XBox 360 simply because they are out now. Give it another 4-6 months, the PS3 will come out and the hype will be on them.

ya i've seen those graphs before. I have heard they are inaccurate from many computer experts. Althoughm its just specualtion. Also all the specs for Ps3 are projected, not set in stone. Ign is a biased site for xbox360, wheras gamespot is biased for ps3.
-the only graph i Know to be false is the memory bandwidth, because the 10mb of embedded ram's bandwidth cannot be simply added on to the other bandwidths. It also is inaccurate because the bandwisth of the embedded ram is as someone described to me as a "potential" speed that teh path allows for, but the hardware will not allow for it to go that fast. Making it just propaganda. I would also sepcualte that genral processing power is irelevant because we are talking about video game platforms. The only way i have heard this argument to go is to PS3, but the xbox360 wins on its video card (in some areas), online interface, and games.

Hey, Microsoft is the one to have started that trend with the XBOX! Before the XBOX, nobody touted specs as much as everyone is doing now.

P.S. You should have made the poll a multi-select. I might get a Revolution, too!

YOURE right!!! I remember than ps2 only said it was a dvd player as well, but then xbox came out with all these specs and it was hard to find specs and is still hard to find the specs of the ps2. Xbox u ruined video platforms and turn them into computer stats. But i guess thats what you need to be informed abouta 400 dollar purchase.
