Some known bands have already done something like this before. For example, the prog rock band Marillion, who have a very dedicated and loyal fanbase, went to their fanbase and asked them that if they helped finance their next studio album, that in return they would get a thank you by getting a free...

Thats did not stop you from blasting the Xbox for only having 300 backwards compat games.. Sounds like you are making the same argument I did to you before :) And as Chris stated, I also work in the industry and know for a fact that it is harder to dev to the PS3. If a game is to be multiplatform, ...

HD-DVD capacity is now up to 55 gigs :) Ok, this comes straight out of Wikipedia... "A 51 GB triple-layer spec has been approved, however no movies are currently scheduled for this disc type." With that, then if they triple layered a Bluray, you're looking at a disc in the 70-75 gig range, but as f...

Just being a smartass, please forgive me :) No forgiveness needed Chris, as I was not offended. However, I didn't buy the PS3 to play my PS1 & PS2 games on it, as I find that it is a bonus reason on why I would purchase a PS3 over the 360. My biggest factor is the reliability of the 360 system, the...

Yes, the $399 sku has no backwards compatibility. That is correct, the 399 version (aka 40 gig version) is not backwards compatible, but do you really buy the new next gen console to play your old gen games on it??? It also doesn't have as many of the USB media ports that the 60 or 80 gig versions ...

The question was Wii VS 360, the PC3 wasn't a part of the equation. Latte summed it up very well as far as I am concerned. I will eventually end up with a PS3 but as of right now there isn't a must-have exclusive that warrants the purchase. Additionally I would be willing to put money on the new Me...

Dont listen to them 360 fan boys. PS3 is the way to go. Lets see our checks and balances: 360 = 33% failure rate, PS3 = less than 1%. As far as the Wii, if you can actually find one, get it! Gotta agree with the Oofster here... go PS3 and get a refurbished one on Ebay.....I can hook you up with the...

You just haven't played the right Xbox games. Play Bioshock and let me know if you change your mind or not. Uhhhhh, isn't Bioshock supposed to be coming out for PS3 as well.

Y'know what, for as much as someone spends on either of the 2 consoles, they should have a longer warranty. I mean, I know things happen, but at least they should back up their product, if it's actually worth a shit. Also, if Red Octane fucked up your Xbox that's out of warranty because they produce...

Thanks Wayne for your insight. Also, great way to get us back on topic. Thanks for letting me know about the noise level from the 360. My gaming setup is in the bedroom, so QUIET late night playtime while the wife sleeps is important.

Ok, let's get one thing straight, I don't hate Bill Gates himself, per say, because I don't personally know the man. As for his company's ethics, which start with him because he is the founder of the company, I personally see as questionable. Hence the reason the EU and the Justice Department have g...

Because you must be evil if you are concerned about your company's profit margin. I believe that is pretty much standard practice in business. What are you? A mac user? Linux? What?

Is there something wrong with your current Xbox? Is it broken? If so, you might want to buy a used or refurbished one. From my experience, even the games that are backward compatable don't run quite right. Forza Motorsport, for example, is buggy as shit played over 360. At least mine is. Buy a next...

PS3 or 360?

I know this question has been asked before, but since I'm ready to make a purchase, I wanna get some opinions. Here's my take....I already have an extensive PS1 and PS2 collection, and I know the PS3 is almost fully backwards compatible. My Xbox collection is quite large as well, but hardly, if any,...
