MS because I think they did it better with X-Box even though not selling well and if anything will bring the X-Box to the level of PC gaming. I will most likely get both anyway.

I don't think either Sony or Microsoft have backward compatability plans.

Both of them are going to be great consoles, though. I'm going to be hard pressed to pick one. I'm probably going to be too busy picking up the current generation at reduced prices.

Honestly, The Playstation was the best console ever, but When Ps2 Came the Reputation Died, Thats why i bought an Xbox. The Only Reason why anyone should buy ps2 is to make ps1 games look better, but even that is still not good enough, So I believe the Playstation 3 is due for a comeback

Hah

Actually, the console I'm waiting for (if you want to call it that) is the PSP. That thing is going to ROCK.

Don't Forget about that DISCover, It'll piss off PC gamers for sure but if your a console freak thats the system you need.

Hmm, tough call since they're both so far away, but my vote goes to Xbox 2. I am disapointed at the current rumors that they'll be removing the harddrive, but at the very least it's online platform should be very nice (even now Live is pretty damn good, I'd love to see what they add for the Xbox 2). Now if they can just let you play videos and user-made software on it out of the box instead of requiring you to have a mod-chip

it also bugs me that the Xbox two is having an MAC machine instead of and Intel Processor. But i think this is a better move because Mac Pc are harder to hack and easier to make

Umm, that's a little misleading, it's using a POWERPC processor rather than an x86 arcitecture one, and apperently they're thinking about using 2 of them in tandem (so it would be like a dual-CPU system, except all the games would support it). But remember: nothing about the Xbox 2 is totally finalised.
