Another thing I find strange is that Butter Bandit hasn't purchased an XBOX360 because of a lack of games but purchased a PS3 instead... Am I missing something here? The PS3 library is nonexistent! The only thing that would make sense is if he purchased the PS3 because of its backward compatibility with PS2 games.

Can't be that, he's talking crap about people playing Halo 2 on 360's. He's worked himself into a corner.

Do you live in Japan or are you an AMERICAN who happens to have Japanese ancestry? I ask because although I am German by descent, I am 100% AMERICAN and couldn't care less about Germany.

PS3 is IBM and NVIDIA engineering. AMERICAN engineering.

Thinks like "lack of DVD upscaling", I'd consider Japanese engineering, or lack thereof.

Japan has done *nothing* for you then. Try and bring some of that Japanese nationalism to your HOME COUNTRY. Thanks.

I don't understand why everyone has this thing against MS. So they are in business to make money... so what? How is Sony or Nintendo any different. Last I checked all three companies have done shady things here and there to conduct their business.

Yeah, but someone has to count all the money, even if it is going out faster than it's coming in.
