hahahahahahaha 640p

Yea im going to wait on getting the Elite because u know they will drop the price within 6 months to around 350 bucks

Seems like Microsoft can't drop the price. I expected a more aggressive strategy from this in reaction to Sony's price cut; I think we all did.

They just cost-reduced the 360 by moving to 65nm, after all.
They *choose* not to cause they believe people buy consoles to play games and they have all the must-have games. From their point of view, $279 is cheap enough for an HD gaming console that has hundreds of quality games, dozens of AAA titles already out, the premiere online gaming environment, and a fully mature digital media downloads service. Today. Not tomorrow or next year, but today.

They may be right or they may be wrong but they aren't going to cut prices just for the sake of cutting prices.

And, at least when MS issues press releases these days its to *add* things to 360, not to take out necessary features in order to cut prices.

"... hundreds of quality games, dozens of AAA titles already out..."

Bill Gates called. He wants you to stop by and finish the blowjob you started after school.

But Metacritic:
http://www.metacritic.com/g...
...lists 254 360 games of which, 210 rate 60 or better and 70 rate 80 or better. That does sound like hundreds of games good enough to buy (considering what PS3 fans are putting their money into) and dozens *anybody* would want to buy.
And that is without including the Backwards-compatible XBOX games:

...which adds a extra 30+ 90-or-better games to the kitty. Remember, it was Sony that said backwards compatibility matters. Don't complain if MS plays that card too.

Im not a fanboy but how is anything he mentioned not true.
-Good Games
-Low Price
-HD Downloads
-Good Online Service
This is oppinion based but I would say there is at least 12 good titles out. Although it did seem a little corporate.

If you want to factor BC into the mix, the PS3 rapes the Xbox 360, steals its money, then leaves it in the alley to rot in shame and humiliation.

As far as "Average Reviewers Scores" go... WHOOP-DE-FRICKIN'-DOO. You said it yourself, it's all a matter of opinion, and in MY opinion, most reviewers are biased, retarded, or flat out apathetic towards anything that doesn't interest them personally, or isn't the way THEY think it should be. They're a bunch of elitist douchebags (kind of like self-proclaimed "professional gamers") preaching their preferences as the gospel to the unwashed masses who are all too eager to accommodate them. Additionally, they are not immune to the hype caused by massive marketing campaigns, as they seemingly brought their knee pads to Bungie's offices for their Halo 3 review, just in case they needed to thank Frankie and Co.

It's amazing how much knowledge is attained simply from seeing the Console War from both perspectives.
