Default Re: WARNING!!! Some will be hurt by the truth - Sony on the Xbox 360 Elite announcement

One of the biggest things I've always wanted for the 360 is HDMI out. Finally I can output Dolby TrueHD from my 360's HD DVD drive.

Now all I need is DTS-HD Master Audio decoding from my PS3 and I'll pretty much be set.

Yes the 360 came out first, but HDMI v1.1 was available before the XB360 launch, MS just decided it wasn't necessary. Now they feel it is and if you want the HD-DVD player to output lossless audio you don't have any choice but to buy a stand alone player or a new 360.
Not really.

For example I plan to sell my HD-DVD addon (say $100?), and just buy a standalone when the time comes.

The Toshiba HD-A2 has HDMI output and decodes TrueHD and outputs only via HDMI I think (you'd need a receiver that takes PCM via HDMI or something like that), and the Toshiba is $350 at amazon.

Just giving an example, if you want the full HD-DVD experience it's not like you're gonna have to buy a whole new 360. You could just sell the HD DVD drive and get a standalone player, they'll probably come down even further in price.

I'm going to rush out and buy a PS3 so i'll have GRAW 2, Rainbow Six Vegas, Saints Row and more to look forward too.

Hang on a second, am I getting deja vu here?

Since when did it stop being about the games folks? Seriously.... when did that happen?

It's all nonsense, I want to see groundbreaking differences between that thing and the 360 before I justify the cost. I don't care about Blu Ray or HD DVD right now, and won't do for a few years when they begin to be the norm.

Every game compared side by side between 360 and PS3 , the 360s had the upper hand in some way. So much for "elite".

You're right... it's not hard to go out and buy and HDMI cable after the fact but what people are talking about is the "out of the box" experience. Right out of the box a normal console buyer will not be able to utilize the PS3 as it was intended. Sony could easily quiet the masses by simply including a HDMI cable with every console.
