Jesus, I really seem to be one of the very few sensible enough not to make rushed conclusions?

Oh well, time will show...

sony still has a year !!
Actually Sony now has exactly 9 months time to launch, that will give Sony good 2 to 3 months plenty time for testing but it seem very unfortunately for Microsoft, they now has exactly 6 months away for November 2005 launch but they have a major problem, they didnt have a bloody full function Xbox 360 prototype running at E3 launch conference. I dont think Microsoft can fit everything to get ready in tight 6 months schedule, they aiming to manufacture and sell 1 million units this December, that translate to 250,000 units each month at maximum volume production capacity each month for 4 months but it need a month for testing, sample and trial production to receive prototypes that Microsoft should had it ready a few months ago but it does not leave room for Microsoft to have 2 to 3 months for testing games on A0 hardware revision, detect and fix bugs then sent back to manufacture A1 revision.

I agreed Microsoft rushed with Xbox 360 and totally unprepared, they first put the original launch date to Q2 2005 1 year ahead of PS3's Spring 2006 but suddenly the date pushed back to Q3 2005 for Autumn launch and oppp the date pushed again to Q4 2005 for November launch. If Microsoft still managed to squeeze for November launch then I expect lots of Xbox 360 hardwares to have mishaps and glitches but it will be better for Microsoft to get things right smoothly, it has to be Spring 2006 launch, it will be great to fire the starter gun start PS3 vs Xbox 360 launch race in the same month.

ROFL, you sound like the riceboys in San Diego and their ricer math:

The broadcasting companies also need him to tell them that 1080p uses less bandwidth than 1080i.

Surely, if we can figure out a lie, so can they... There must be other reasons

For one, this is a Nvidia-fansite after all, so when people see movies/screens from the two consoles, and some PS3 games immediately looks better, it doesn't take long for us to reach the conclussion that PS3 will own Xbox360 graphicswise, ignoring the fact that we tend to compare rendered games on powerful computers vs. ingame on the Xbox360 alpha-state.

We just still don't know which console will be most powerful. I'm just rationally leaving possibilites open...

I don't understand why people like you use forums in the first. Part of the fun is throwing down the gauntlet, picking a side, and seeing if you were right [that's where this whole Nvidia vs ATI thing comes from in the first place]. Like the NvNews shirts say, where's your pair?
