Really interesting article.  Thanks.  I wonder if we will see third party hard drives for the 360.  Microsoft is going to have to come up with a solution to the hard drive limitations and everyone knows that hard drive technology is cheap enough that a $200 40 or 60 GB HD is going to seem like a gigantic rip-off - which it is.

That scaler issue, however, is a giant fuck-up in the Sony camp.  My TV doesn't support 1080p, and I don't see myself ever buying a PS3 if I have to play any games in 480p.

great article.

its funny i seem to remember when microsoft first showed off the specs of the 360(whatever it was named then)and sony accused them of bringing out an xbox 1.5 instead of an xbox2(if you catch my drift),so interesting to hear the 360 can keep up and in someplaces overtake the ps3...thats what was said...and to tell you the truth i have pointed that out because i am a xbox and Wii fanboy

what ps3 really want to do is get more exclusive games for its sytem,this is no secret ..they need more of games like MGS4 or FF13,to make someone like me...WANT to buy PS3 system at this time,but can any new series,or game come along and make an impact like that?


i seem to have my wires crossed about the HDD in the PS3,can you detatch it anyway?...i thought it was a fixed internal drive....have i heard wrong?

does your HDTV accept 720p and 1080i though?  if it does, then you won't have a problem with the PS3 and you're probably misunderstanding the issue

yeah, you heard wrong... it's very easy to swap out the PS3 HD with any third-party 2.5" drive

Read developer diaries and interviews, a lot of them even say the 360 is stronger than the PS3.

Don't confuse me with facts.
