Aren't Microsoft backing High Definition DVDs? Probably for obvious reasons... backing Blu-Ray would involve backing Sony who are working on it. That cannot be allowed.

Ultimately; HDDVDs will be worth the wait - and we don't yet know enough to say that they won't be included in the final Xenon release.

Again? Nintendo haven't pwned the market for a decade. XBox sales beat the GameCube Sales by a factor of two to three with a smaller market impact time and without any prior Market Share or personal backing of the gamers. Without any real games to its name either!

Nintendo will never pwn the market coming close to the looser of the Console War will be the best it will ever achieve.

So? The companies don't matter....it's that games that they produce that matter.

They'll probably all be re-released for it with updated graphics and the like. Maybe in Gold Editions with any Add on Packs that may have been brought out in the mean time.

i agree with lord kalthorn. the nintendo revolution will lose the console war against xbox 360 and ps3. but deciding between xbox 360 and ps3 which one i would get is quite difficult.

Haha. Yeah... but you don't have to upgrade all the games. You can still play on an XBox with the old games and an Xenon with the new Games?
