"We hear Microsoft ain't too happy about this chart either and is preparing certain legal action, namely because it could be misleading to otherwise unwitting retail employees selling customers game consoles this holiday season."

Microsoft send them to their grave, you guys may never see a PS3. After this lawsuit Sony is over. Microsoft can afford the best legal tema in the world to tear Sony apart.

Sony could do without this, somebody's head will roll for this. They're too big a firm to be making silly mistakes like this.

What are they playing at?

Not very clever or nice on Sony's part. Since when did MS do anything so low to Sony??

They did write this article for IGN:

http://xbox360.ign.com/arti...

That one was absolutely bull**** with not a single piece of reality to it.

Most of Sony's claims are actually quite valid, as the chart is meant to compare what you get for your buck.

1. To get even the slightest taste of XBL you will need a storage device for your X360.

2. To play online you will need an additional XBL Gold membership.

Most if not all of X360's marketing is about online gaming, gaming with your friends online, chatting online. But you can't do any of these on the X360 core edition as is.

X360 marketing is also very proud of the fact that the X360 has wireless controllers, although they again are not available in the X360 core edition.

And now X360 marketing is pushing their HD-DVD drive, which just adds another costly peripheral to ones shopping basket.

Does anyone here actually use the X360 core as is? No extra peripherals?

In my oppinion it is MS marketing that is full of bull... I personnaly ended up buying the equivalent of a $630 X360 (extra controller, batterypacks, wifi, xbl gold) -- although in my currency it was much more expensive. I'm not gonna play it online for much longer (well, actually I haven't played it for quite a while, since my gf won't let me have it permanently in the living room -- it is too ugly and noisy she says), unless GoW really impresses me, so I think I'll save the $50 for Gold this year.
