Re: Xbox 360???

Gizmondo is not made by MS as far as I know :) It is made by Tyger.
I will have some E3 pics for everyone as soon as I get home from the conference.

All I can say is that there are no words for me on how to describe how sweet the new 360 is. Put it this way.... at E3, all of the new 3rd party next gen games are not being displayed on Nintendo's or Sony's systems... they are all being shown on the current version of the 360 if there is a choice.

Re: Xbox 360???

they are trying to draw the attention away from the fact that this is only their second console, while its sonys third,

Xbox 2 vs. PS3 ?
naaa, Xbox 360 vs. PS3

see the marketing behind the name.

anyways, im looking forwards to the PS3, between now and the launch, it should gatter alot more steam.
+ im happy with my current Xbox

Re: Xbox 360???

It looks like a silver version of the dell optiplex pcs we have at college and I'm a little worried about the shape of the controllers (they remind me of the annoying 3rd party ps2 controllers where the handles are too long). Apart from that the games and the specs look excellent

Playstation and PSone are essentially the same thing (only smaller and minus a linkup port)
Ditto for PS2 and Slim
I guess he isn't counting the PSP because it isn't a home console (its a portable)

PS3 does look very good but I think it will still be the games that will decide what people buy.

Actually, Xenon is the code name for the 360. I like that name much better.
