    I guess success of it will depend on its 'performance' in real world, and price being in competitive range.

    As long as the price is right it will be at least a bit successful. As for the slim version... it long due and PS3 is gaining momentum.

    I'd love to have a console to play with my friends. Well not really because I can NOT deal with the games running at 30fps when my pc runs em at 120fps with higher res and graphical details. I find 30fps smooth but not as smooth. And CoD on consoles is ****ing horrible. Runs at 60fps unless theres smoke which is basically all the ****ing time. And everyone knows CoD is choppy below 60fps. It's horrible and I don't know how console gamers can stand it.

    Lmao, at this point i think they're slow at everything. Might as well give up, even PSN is free where Xbox 360 requires subscription...

    Then again monopoly will occur and sony will start bitching up prices once again. hmm.

    "rumors are abuzz that a slimmer Xbox 360 design might be announced at E3"

    Today's Microsoft Media Briefing confirms it. 250 GB HD, wifi connectivity. Shipping right now to retailers. Some people will be able to get their hands on them by the end of the week!

    As for Natal:
    It won't be a hit as the wii, but the option gives developers a way to port some wii style games to the xbox360, especially family or griop/party type games. Now if they really want to sell it, they need to get someone to develop an adult porn game with it. (ahh yes come to me virtual babe!)
