PS3 was a paper launch, no more no less. Forming an opinion on E3 is retarded. PS2's emotion engine simulates real human emotions too right? Keep eating the **** shoveled down your throats. I'll be laughing when the real PS3 shows up and is 1/3 what they promised. Remember how the PS2 was going to have Final Fantasy movie quality graphics in real time? LOL! They did this the last time, and you're all falling for it again.

Microsoft's press seems to be the real McCoy. It looks legit and feasable. They aren't talking about it creating "phenomenons" inside the computer like Sony. I'd call that a bug!
XBOX 360 was a paper launch too then as no games were actually running on XBOX 360 hardware! Fine, I agree with you that Sony are over-hyping the technology, but you have no reason to believe that XBOX games will even be of the quality they showed either, because their chips and cards are just as much 'vaporware'.

Anandtech already showed that the playable demos at E3 had XBOX360s in the front but had MACs hidden round the back.

Hmm and you aren't basing your opinion on the e3? :P You can't even say that "Microsoft's press seems to be the real McCoy" when the console doesn't yet exist! You said that yourself! I'll buy 'em both so I'm not going to take sides like *hrrmhmm* steeda *hrrrhhmm*...

Um, The 6800 series was a HUGE leap over the FX series, not 4x the performance but easily double.

Yeah, but I don't think that the g70 will outperform two 6800Ultras, but I'm quite sure the RSX will(this is only my opinion). It will work more effectivly than the 6800's in SLi.

Both companies will act like companies, if you expect anything else you're a flaming idiot that needs to be removed from the gene pool.

Try Saturn to Dreamcast

One thing I do wonder about, if all the games are HD will they even run on older TVs? I would guess they would and if that is true then most of these games will end up getting played on a standard TV. Will all that potential resolution pretty much go to waste?

Yep. It will just be in good ol' 480i for most people.

Well, if they have VGA cable compatibility, then that might not be entirely true. I really wouldnt mind playing XBOX360 or PS3 on my PC monitor. Others might though (thinking that consoles are taking over the PC scene or whatever other paranoid notions they have)!
