I think the XBOX 360 design is pretty sweet. I really can't wait to grab one!

More ads for the PS3...

First thing that popped into my head was "What if the rumors of PS3 launching this year were correct?". Sony has said in the past that they were looking to give thier systems a 5 year lifespan... This year does make the PS2 two years old...

Honestly, I wouldn't be suprised at all... Sony is up to something... they are to god-dam quiet...

Weclome Chang3 is a really weird slogan. I wonder what change they are planning...


Holy crap you know what I just thought, what if they plan on including the EyeToy Creators new technology? The new interface technology? That would rock!

if anybody can keep somthing quiet its sony. it feels like the ps3 is some new stealth alien technology the government has, its about the blow our minds and we dont even know it. god the anticipation is killing me.

i dunno why but i think those ads are pretty pimp, doesnt give any info away, but we know exactly what its talking about, making us want more.

edit: check the new sig ;)

The change might be the Apple, Sony rumor (Link (http://macdailynews.com/index.php/weblog/comments/5771/)). I really doubt Sony will sway much from what has pretty much become there core business. The most change I see happening is a mouse wheel in the controller or something having to do with the controller because of those adds. The change might just be Blue-Ray adoption. I have a sneaky feeling the PS3 will look and act like there set-top boxes that failed in Japan.

As long as it doesn't cost as much as the PSX then we should be glad then, lol. It was a great device just too much for it. But I don't think the PS3 will do all that, it would need a pretty large HD and since I dout Sony would want to include a Blu-Ray recorder in the PS3.

Are you sure about that? I was under the impression that you could also get a skin for the rest of the Xbox 360 and not just the faceplate.

Oh, Heres the difference in "skin" for the Xbox 360...

Don't know about you, but I think it looks even worse with a faceplate...

Those face plates aren't very pretty. But considering those are only 2 of the countless hundreds that will come out...

And skins like those will probably come out too. Considering that most of the thing is white and made of the same texture almost, there should be skins like those comming out that cover more of the 360 than they did the normal Xbox

Round 1 goes to Sony!? No it doesn't. Your telling me that "welcome chang3" is a more meaningful event than Microsoft unveiling the Xbox 360? Talk about being a Sony fanboy. :rolleyes:

Nobody shouldn't judge which console is better until we see all of them at E3. The XBOX 360 is a promising machine and maybe the PS3 can blow us all away. Who knows? (Until next week! :D)

Next week? You mean tomorrow... The PS3 is getting unveiled tomorrow afternoon (monday) and it will be on show at E3 this week (Wensday).

Really? I haven't heard about that yet. Wow, so I have something to look forward to tomorrow. One question. How are they going to unveil it? XBOX had the MTV special so what will Sony have?

Looks like Sony is pulling another vaporware game out of its ass.

It will be a press conference and if I remember right MS conference will also be later that same day. So expect big news tommorow or Tuesday.

Yeah, I just read that not too long ago. I wonder if Halo 3 will affect the PS3 release at all. I kinda wish the PS3 was coming out this year though . . . Looks like I'll definitly be buying an XBOX 360 no matter what and maybe the PS3 (if I have the cash :D).

Not really. Show of hand people that didn't know Halo 3 was already in development? Slight difference between a game in the making an a console that hasn't even been built. Par for the course for Sony.
