    Your kidding right? Custom maps and track are the very least you can use the HD for. If anything, but memory cards all the time cost you more then the HD will (in the total price) I have over 70,000 blocks on my xbox, never needing a memory card.

    Bethsda Software (morrowind) said already that they are not going to bring the game to PS3 because there is not a HD

    I keep hearing you guys say how awesome the hard drive is, but not one has given a better reason than custom maps and tracks. custom tracks are only good for certain games. Storage space is not an issue with memory cards (the most anyone ever needs is two). Memory cards don't cost more than a hard drive.

    Theres one thing that the 360 dissapoints me and that it doesnt have four controller ports..Just two .. :(

    we need to buy a connector like the one in the ps2 to connect four controllers ...

    hey

    yes the hard drive is cheaper cause an 8 to 10 gb hard drive costs about 40 to 50 bucks where as silly 8 mb memory card costs 35 bucks here in canada

    Ive heard you can store pictures music that works for all games hunderds of custom maps(with memory card you could probly only store 2) and anything else they wanna put in that we DONT KNOW ABOUT.

    there are two types of controllers that you can hook up to the xbox... The original wireless controllers and ones with a wire so you dont have to worry about the battery during the game ...

    I dont know man i love nintendo have been a big fan ... but yea i can see that they are DEFINATLY not doing well.. with the gamecube you know they would be FAR BETTER if they launched their titles like MARIO' and ZELDA's on other platforms.. they would definatly earn more profits than making it exclusive to the gamecube

    Yeah, but then they would have to pay M$ even more licensing fees for a game like Donkey Konga (remember 3rd party hardware manufacturers have to pay licensing fees for things like controllers, etc.).

    Did you guys check out the new XBOX 360 bundles man they are EXPENSIVE lol...

    but yea if you have money and can afford i think its a pretty good deal...

    but i gota admit besides Project racing gotham 3 i think the rest of the games arent that good
    they should have put Elder scrolls IV and Gears of war
    that would have been awsome

    Hmm, Xbox 360, PS3, or the Revolution. I would buy the Xbox for the following: Nice line up of games in the beginning (saw most of them on a demo). Not a big fan of FPS though, too easy a game type. PS3 have my favorite type of games RPG, but so few of them. Revolution, now THAT is a story behind that mother. I am not a HUGE Nintendo fan, I hated the Gamecube when it came out, but have you heard of their download capability? You can download SNES, SNS, Nintendo 64, Game cube, Dream Cast, DVDs, and as well as Revolution games. There is nothing more that I like is RPG, RTS, and good old games. Xbox supports 4 controllers. Heard that one of the systems allow 6 people to play. Not quite sure which one.

    Did any one see the tokyo game show.. I was a little dissapointed with the XBOX 360's show cause they didnt have much to show at all..revolution had its controller which i think is pretty amazing ..like moving ur hands around in frnt of the tv lol.... but the real thing that BLEW me away was the METAL GEAR SOLID 4 TRAILER which was just FANTASTIC

    what do you guys think

    No one will really know till they've both been out for a while. They come out so far apart... why not just get both?
