oh goody.. more *gadgets* for my son!

Now if only they would make the psp with a 3G type sim card mobile in it & fully windows & exchange server compatible, we would have the perfect thing for the busy swordswoman / IT engineer like me!

Isn't blu-ray a good thing? I mean, those disks store a serious amount of stuff on them, plus they're unlikely to be piratable from home for some time... although, I'd be suprised if they really catch on in the PC market.

Blu-ray is a very good thing. Its the next generation of DVD, each disk has 10x the storage capacity of current DVD's, and the reproduction quality is geared towards getting the most from the new Hi-Def TV's.

waiting to incorporate blu-ray as standard in the PS3 is why the release date was postponed. Sony took a gamble on letting xbox 360 launch unopposed with inferior hardware (originaly they were to go head to head). I think it will pay off, as Microsoft are already talking about producing a blu-ray upgrade for the 360, so thats an additional expense, and either a messy preipheral, or a time consuming rebuild for those who want it. not ideal.

Hmm... I still believe the Xbox360 and PS3 will just about the same graphics, since updates are going to be released and they'll just keep 1Upping each other. I don't think Blu Ray is necessary at this point, and I believe the 360 will play both HD-DVD and Blue Ray, so publishers aren't forced into spending more money than they need to.

360 will not play blu ray as standard. Blu-ray will play normal DVD, but due to the memory storage difference, it does not work the other way round.
Like i said the 360 is still a fine machine, but history shows that developers support sony hardware better than Xbox. The latest Mortal Kombat game is not getting an xbox release in europe, state of emergency 2 was dropped mid development for xbox, they lost exclusivity on both splinter cell and soul calibre franchises. the Oddworld series that was successfull on on PS1, made the programming house go bust when it tied itself to xbox, despite two cracking games in the series.
i dont have an agenda here, I own and play both xbox and PS2, they are great, but the Playstation brand is better established and has better choice of games.
xbox360 will end up principly catering for the online game community- it is a game spec PC for 1/3rd of the price. I dont like online games- strategy, squad based shooters, all that sort of stuff is just my idea of hell.
i will take a PS3, a copy of tekken 6, 4 real life friends in a room, and a case of beer, over trading insults with a 14 year old stranger over a headset anyday
