Hmm ... i wish that there was the PC there
That is by far the best gaming console, the longest and the best, it always will be
But if it was between PS3 and Xbox 360 ... i dunno ... but i will go with the Xbox ... seeing as though it looks cool

The PS3 is a very powerful machine, but I think the Xbox 360 is what I really need. Xbox Live, seamless Windows Networking, awesome console and controller design (some famous Japanese company designed it), all with a very balanced machine at an affordable price is what I really want.

Wow, both specs look terribly hot. Too hard to make a decision now. I will have to wait for actual reviews on gameplay.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
