Re: PS3 or XBox 360?
I have been an xbox man from day one. Like most others in this thread, the price, gaming, and online features make the 360 unbeatable. The PS3 just hasn't done much with online gaming and that is a huge segment of the market that they are missing out on. Plus, like someone said earlier, the 360 has an add on HD player where as if the war between blu-ray and HD DVD goes to HD DVD, then PS3 owners have a useless pos.

Re: PS3 or XBox 360?
I don't agree with that. The Wii is still impossible to keep on store shelves across the country, and is still in high demand. On top of that, Nintendo is making money on every console they sell, whereas Microsoft is losing a big chunk of change on each console (though not as much as last year, and definitely not as much as Sony is). Remember, Nintendo is taking the stance of concerning itself first and foremost with running a good business. Making money is how they do that. With the way the Wii has taken to the market in general, I don't see the 360 Core as a threat to the Wii's success. Nintendo's not going to drop the price on the Wii until units start to sit around on shelves for a couple of weeks before being sold. A price drop is like a miniature console launch all over again; you have crowds of people trying to get the thing, raising interest and publicity (since those price drops often result in a spike in stock prices, which garners business media attention in an industry this big).

By the time April hits and the new lines open, Nintendo will probably just sit back and wait for the fiscal year to close before cutting prices.

I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.
