Well from what I heard from E3 Xbox360 officially said compatible with the "top selling" XBOX games. That could mean anything... posibly only Halo 1 and 2... Also they claim thair controller is so new? it looks exactly the same as the old XBOX controller with three differences. they took out the black and white tiny buttons, moved the start/select to the senter, and made that large gem in the middle useful as an on/off switch for the console. Oh and wireless but everyone's going wireless. Now I will admit, the on off switch for the console actually on a console like a remote is cool... still have to go to the console to change discs though. Sony... great looking system... redesigned the controller... not. Exact same buttons and layout in a different case. Plus they totally ripped off Spiderman's font! Look at the case, it's the font from the Spiderman movie! Plus I'm betting that the Sony specs are way overkill. Nintendo... ummm where is the info? Nintendogs looks interesting but I never liked the tomagotchi craze... the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess looks drop-dead gorgeous, but that's current gen. The idea of downloading all the previous games. Cool idea I suppose, but you'd probably need a hard drive addon to store them. 512 MB won't store all the games I'd want from the past. Now, I'm a Nintendo fanboy, I will admit, but right now the big N isn't impressing me. The only thing I'm scared about is the controller. They already have the full ports for four GCN controllers and two memory cards so the backwards-compatable I'm not worried about. It's the Revolution controller. Mr. Reggie "kickin' *** and taking names" said this to the G4 cable watch of CIII. "All we're gonna reveal about the new controller is that the NES, SNES, N64, GameBoy... all our systems have had radically different controllers each time. We need a controller that will properly replicate all of them" To me this is really scary or wicked cool. I dunno, I will have to see what they come up with. In conclusion. If I had to buy one system... I can't decide right now. If Nintendo impresses me with the controller and the Revolution lineup, I'll stick with them. If not... I'll probably go for PS3. Unless XBox 360 is fully backwards compatiable, then I'll get that so I can buy all the good XBox games really cheap.
