  1. I came across a little extra cash, and was thinking about a xbox 360. Is it worth the upgrade from the regular xbox, or is xbox worthy of the hype.

    if you want a xbox you better go for the elite because it's got a hdmi port unlike the other one,hdmi cable,and 120gb hard drive.Cartera the ps3 has slightly better graphics because it's full hd not hd ready.Full hd=1080p

    Paying $200-300 extra for slightly better graphics is being dumb IMO. The Elite is a sweet system. Mine is coming next week. :D

    I know the PS3 is HD but its graphics are not significantly better than the 360's. Which lets be honest the PS3 has had 3 years to be developed, its graphics should be noticeably better than the 360. As much as i hate to say it microsoft has outdone its competitors once again. The price difference when i last looked is a the reason why i would say the 360 aswell. The elite would be a definate, i am hoepfully going to invest in one at some point. Untill then i will stick with the original.

    Both the Xbox 360 & PS3 support 1080P. HD Ready only relates to the DISPLAY (i.e. 720P at least).

    The PS3 may have HMDI, but all newer Xbox 360s will too (Not just the Elite!) - current Xbox 360s can output 1080P via Component & VGA.

    If you're from the US, you can trade in your old X Box at a Gamespot. You'll get in store credit for some new 360 games. Or, if you don't mind waiting, you could sell it outright.

    Well If your stuck in-between the decision of making a choice of what system to get, stall for now. As far as the above, the PS3, meaning the makers, IBM, toshiba and Sony have had three years to make a system better than the 360. I think thus far they have not failed themselves.

    The PS3 is a good investment and so is the 360 elite. Developers have had time to make awesome games for the 360 cuz it been out for 3 years. PS3 Developers have had no where over nine months. So in comparison IMO I think the PS3 is slowly making progress. GRAW 2 comes out tomorrow and hopefully that will have a good impact esp if online play is good. I also read somewhere that PC and console gaming will be integrated online, not sure of what console platforms will be integrated with PC online play.
