Xbox 360 Showcase Revs Up Hype As Console War Looms

"We're looking forward to competition." That could be the motto for November's monumental rivalry between the next-gen video game consoles.

He mentions this number as a dig against the PS3, which comes with a bundled Blu-ray player and thus pushing the console price higher than the 360’s $400."

He pointed it out nicely. Although 35% owning a HDTV is rather good if you compare it to the 5% on totall TV's penetration of the HDTV's in homes I guess!

I think it's best we leave these games we're they belong...in the past

Generations is getting one because they had something easy to shove Shadow into before the Sonic 3 film and it's probably the better ones they've did over the past decade or so.
