Prove it. Prove to me it is $59.99 then. (Mind, I still think even that is BS, I thought the same thing when that was the price announced for 360 games.)

It depends on the publisher. Most games are listed at $59.99, but there are some listed at $69.99 (like Armored Core 4).

How the hell is the Xbox 360 half-assed? Just because they have an external HD-DVD drive? The Xbox 360 does exactly what it was designed to do. Play games and join gamers together though Xbox Live. The external drive is merely to give gamers a chance to experience HD-DVD without spending big bucks buying those Toshiba machines.

Toshiba is okay. If the product arrives fine, it's not bad. Just don't expect any support on the products though. I'm considering returning or selling my Toshiba Gigabeat S and investing in a Zune or something. There is pretty much no support whatsoever. No accessories, no updates, no nothing. Getting annoying really...

How has my thread about problems with my Xbox turned into a fuede as to wheather PS3 is better?... Its going to have problems too, trust me.

I'm loving Burnout

I don't honestly care about which one i went for. I'm not into any of the exclusve games coming out on any, so I'm happy with getting the ones that are coming out on both, so it doesn't really matter.

I just wish the DVD drive was quieter when it turns on, as it stays on when a game is on (the old one didnt) as it has a very high whine to it, and the console itself has a very low whine :s

Looking forward to PGR4,
Next burnouts, yay They better not go exlcusive to PS3 or something, or I'll seriosuly go over to there factory and kill them all.

Sonic (even though thats probably going to be rubbish, as there filling it with physics crap and new characters),

and Need For Speed Carbon, which looks excellent

CONSOLES:

To tell the truth, its only a matter of preference of games, because I don't believe the PS3 is going to really have an advantage. I think they'll both hold their own.

Only thing I see thats qan advantage to the PS3 is the Blu-Ray drive (if it wins, which I hope actually), and the fact all have the hard drive, so this can actually be used as a cache to speed loading up, rather than with the 360 that has to do without since some people won't have one.

Yeah, it's not really fair when a bunch of younger people can make all sort of screw ups and not get fired, where my dad got fired for one minor mistake in 20 years..

Well it'll be illiegal for them to do that soon.

Getting online means I need a router. I have tried a switch yet that didn't work, so a router seems the only way.

I will replace the game tommorow hopefully, and is this report true from IGN?:

If so, it sort of flips what people thought about the Xbox 360 on its head:
