Feel free to rant, argue, discuss.

High priced console + no HD included = superior system that will get outright THUMPED by the 360 simply due to cost. Hell, what do I know though, I only own every console other than the NeoGeo and why don't I own one of those you ask? Price PS3 may suffer the same fate..........

Estimates are saying Xbox360 $299-$360. PS3 $399-$499

Indeed, that will kill them then

Price as one of the drawbacks of 'cell'?

Oooooh, pretty!

Actually, i'm still going to get the PS3, and not the Xbox 360. I just don't have interest in the 360 ( that and my dad will probably buy that, so i don't have to, heh )

But since linux can run on it...i'm wondering about putting boinc on that thing...with that cell processor. I just wonder if it would give decent times!

imagine, when i'm not playing a game, its crunching for boinc!!!

And I wouldn't have to mod the PS3 to get it to do it either!

Remember, when you buy a console, you are buying more than that, you are choosing what selection of games you will have in the future. Now, Sony, in my view has had the best games since release of the PS1. N64 was a better console, but it didn't have the games to compete, same with the XBOX IMO. I have no idea whether companies are switching to the 360, I ''heard'' about this not to long ago. I doubt i'll buy either console, if I do it won't be for a long time yet.
