From what i read........Xbox 360 is gonna be much better than the other two. The Nintendo Revolution is gonna be great to. The PS3 just looks pretty.

Is the xbox 360 going to rotate around it's own axis in any way?

If it does I'll buy it.

You could always build it a small stand, fit it into the case of the 360, and fix it so that it rotates yourself. Then, it'd kinda be like getting what you wanted.

Thumbs down Re: XBox 360 Vs Playstaion 3... And that thingy by Nintendo.

I could do that with the Atari Cromagnon 2000 too.

Worthless pieces of crap they all are. I like the look of the nintendo thing though, like a cd drive doing a titanic impersonation (or imhardwareation perhaps)

Well, it's only been a few months since I bought the damn PS2 (actually, it's coming up to a year, I think ) but I'll eventually be getting the PS3 rather than anything else, I think.

Thanks, Kieraganion. Is there a price tag on any of these, yet?

Is "A Frozen Salmon" code for "All three," or does it mean "I would rather eat a frozen salmon than have anything to do with any of those systems" ?

Re: XBox 360 Vs Playstaion 3... And that thingy by Nintendo.

Tough decision.

The PS3 looks great, but I'll probably wind up with the XBOX 360. I'll likely get to choose between one and the other. Since I already have a ps2, but I don't have an xbox, I'll probably get the xbox 360. I'm thinking it'll be able to play all xbox games just like the ps3 will be able to play all ps games. Although, it would be interesting to see if the ps3 integrates the psp into gameplay like the game boy advance did to the game cube... That was fun. But I probably won't go with the nintendo revolution... I was hoping for better form the gamecube and wound up being disapointed.

So anyways, I'll probably go with the xbox 360, but I think I'll wait and see before making a final decision.
