playing 360 now thats a tru gamer right there

yes how sad i bought a $600 machine told fold while playing 360 :-(. who cares i love both my consoles :-).

Ps30073691d ago

As of late your console aint looking to good. Microsoft has done everything to show they are nervous. What more can they add to live? With this new 360 that im sure most Ps3 fans are enjoying, where does that leave the 1st 10 million? As gerbils.. Nothing but test rats. Ill be picking up my black 360 to go with my black Ps3. Those are the real next gen consoles.

The wii60 stuff, old news and outdated. Enjoy your 20gb or rather 14gb console LMAO...

Ill take my $630 folding machine, High Def Movie Player, Browser, computer, oh and it manages to play games to... Quite well.. Cant wait for Ninja Gaiden!

I couldn't fold for too long since i had to go to work. Pretty kool though.

shysun3691d ago

I folded while I was @ work.12hours last night.My Ps3 was fine.

I actually like this concept. It isn't about games anymore as it is a 'computer entertainment system' (thank you Ken K). Now, I don't exactly know how 'folding' is 'entertainment' but its still a good use of the system distributed networking features of CELL. I could see celebrities jumping all over this thing like the Toyota Prius cause they are helping out a good cause.

This is only going to get good press but someone Xbox fanatics have the knack for negative 'spin'. As much as I love my 360, I don't see anything like this on it. And you know what, I shouldn't because its a 'gaming' machine. I respect that (reason I bought it). Please respect my right to fold. I can fold overnight. I can fold while drinking coffee. I can even fold during sex. Thank you Sony for giving me that option. I LOVE TO FOLD! FOLD FOR THE FUTURE! Heck, if it helps you Xbox fanactics 50 years from now when you hit a road block with some form of degenerative disease ... I'm willing to do it. WHY, cause I LOVE TO FOLD! SPIN THAT!

I folded some clothes last night after I got them out of the dryer, they were all nice and warm.... oh.
I did it for a while, it was just like SETI @ Home. Seems like a noble thing to do if you have time, I'm always down for some research that might help humanity. Very cool feature.

Torch3690d ago

With not a smidgen of an issue. Some folding and some playing.

Though I could swear it's a helluva lot hotter in that room now.
