My Penis just filed for divorce, stated reasons were unsatisfactory relationship.

I think I'm going to download some PC Trailers, they might salvage my marriage.

There has to be a catch. The specs are out of this world for a console. I don't buy it.

I think the problem now is, that we need better gfx engines to feed the new consoles including the Xbox360. Remember that the xbox360 will run all games based on the UT3 tech in full glori, i doubt you can say that about my 6800

True but as of yet, the system is making not care for it. The event was pretty lame on itself and the games shown didn't have the wow factor an unveiling of a next generation console should have. The single UE3 game they showed looked decent aswell but nothing that would make me throw down 300 bucks for the system. I hope Blue Dragon is shown off more at E3, A good RPG would put me in line for the console.

But ya, as of right now the system is "meh", ungly design (god so horrible) and lame unveiling... E3 is thier last hope in my book.

hehe that Launch video was just too much.. had to struggle to not throw up from all that trendy marketing gibberish and whatnot..
Anyhow, the game videos dont look too hot, sortof like modern PC graphics when I expected alot more...
Usually takes a game or two before the potential of the hardware is fully utilized tho, or so it has been sofar with consoles to my knowledge (which is slim in this field).

Its looking more and more like a PC to me, with all the features they are touting, just without alot of applications of different sorts PCs have..

For all 13 year olds it must have been an awesome show.

Hey, c'mon... think about how much you'd have to spend to buy all of those components to your pc? And no it doesn't look that much better than modern pc graphics(apart from the ghost reacon 3 video, that one was just " "), but the xbox360 has a lot of potential! and the ps3 is rumoured(I don't believe it's true, but one can still hope!) to be faster than the xbox360. The first ps3 dev kits had one cell processor and twin 6800ultras in SLi and they said that the dev kit don't even come close to the real ps3 performance(this is the part I really don't think is true). Think about it, twin 6800ultras in SLi? hmmm....

As I see it xbox2 will be surpassed by pc in gaming capabilities almost on the spot of its launch. And unfortunately it will again be a break for the enhancements in the pc games in the following 5 years when maybe xbox3 will come out I do not change my opinion that consoles are no good and since their wide proliferation started game development go in hitches. But for 300$ that is acceptable. Even a decent vid card costs more
