alot of people either follow sony or microsoft, personally i think ps3 will be the better because i like sony and japanese companies. i think they're more dependable

On the head-to-head comparison, it says that xbox 360 will have a Backward Compatible with Xbox, but limited....wtf is that suppose to mean? Does that mean we can only play Halo 2 on xbox360? I don't see any other big hits....

Yeah I was wondering what "limited" meant. I guess certain games won't work, but most will? :unsure:

xbox 360 is completely backwards compatible. it is not limited.. maybe a few games wont work, but they'll probably be games nobody cares about. llike, bad boys: miami takedown, or somethin...

The xbox will have an optional wi-fi adapter. You can pick one up for you PC for about 20, and use internet connection sharing through Wi-Fi. :) :rolleyes: :w00t:

hope this helps

Your all idiots, making a choice of which to buy when niether will be out for 6 months +, there has been no gameplay footage of either, no real game comfirmations apart from 1 or 2, and most talk is just bullshit made up by someone to make there e-penis bigger.

anyways xbox360 will kick ass cos it has a new and improved live service(if you can improve on the current one!!)

ps3 are newbs in the online gaming business and online gaming is the future

plus, only f**kin dumbsh*ts believe that the ps3 is WAY more powerful than the xbox. Numbers in stats don't explain everything. The difference between the performance will barely be noticable. plus whoever said they prefer ps3's cos they thin japanese companies are reliable can suck my balls. i havent got 1 friend who hasn't been through 3 PS2's, and i.ve never seen an xbox break. TRUTH

none of the three competitors for the next generation are n00bs when it comes to the internet.

microsoft have a little experience but it won't count for anything in the next 5 years




whether the PS3 is as powerful as they've been saying won't make much difference to anything. there's still games being released now that look like N64 games. hopefully developers will do something good with their power but as far as graphics go i'm not really bothered about what more the PS3 can supposedly do over the xbox360.


also about durability and reliability: gamecube>xbox>ps2 :01:
