Update: Microsoft has announced its redesigned Xbox 360 model with a 250GB hard drive and built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity. They've also given Kinect a price and release date: $150 on November 4. More details available here.
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.
as you spread the usual FUD and do AnythingToSpreadLinux(TM),
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!)
