Just because it's a console doesn't mean it won't have hardware problems. When the PS2 first launched, it had a plethora of problems, ranging from the disc drive not reading properly down to the hardware malfunctioning. The PS3 had a few problems at the beginning too, especially with heat. If you put it in a cabinet or somewhere without good ventilation, it's prone to crashing because of all the heat it spews out. There were some reports of the Blu-Ray discs also "rotting" and as a result a few of them couldn't be read at all.
So it's not unusual that consoles have problems, especially this generation with all that complex hardware and the amount of heat the put out.

Any information on the size of hard drive or anything else?
Yeah, I agree. I played the Motorstorm demo at Target and Resistance: Fall of Man at my friend's house. Got bored after a bit. The controller is a bit too light and the lack of rumble makes your hand feel dead.
Resistance is fun, but I'd gladly take Gears of War over it anyday.
As for the new "Falcon", I have no idea. I'm assuming they're just replacing the current 90nm core with the 65nm core in the same Core, Premium and Elite bundles.

Agreed. A lot of the console exclusives that aren't on PC now. Half the time when they do bring it to PC, it's merely a port, which means you don't get much benefit from having an insane PC or anything.
