    Re: Xbox 360 Price Revealed

    well, nobody has yet to realize the true implications of this price split; companies who design games for the XBOX 360 are not happy that Microsoft decided to have two price points, now a company must decide whether its going to design a game to utilize the HD, or a game that doesn't utilize it, or create two of the same game just so that people can play the games on both consoles, remember, its takes alot more money to design a game that can play both HD or non-HD consoles,

    this is probably why PS3 will not have two price points, because the developers will be able to design one game and one game only instead of spending extra money to accomodate those people who do not have an HD on their XBOX 360, also price drops won't happen till 2007. As far as console wars go, I take the opinion of Hideo Kojima, PS3-A fancy dinner, XBOX-A saturday lunch, Revolution-Mothers home cooking, each will have its niche.

    well they lost more cause of the graphics card bud that was one reason they had a big falling out with Nvidia as they'd never come off the price like the other components

    also there are reports that newer Xbox games coming out (although it will only suppposedly be ones M$ chooses as they can't do it for all of them) will get special treatment and have an emulator built right into the game. So it will automatically work on the 360 EVEN if you dont have the HDD. But that will only be on newer games coming out and I dont know which ones or when it will start. Plus they made it sound like only really really popular games or something. So maybe like Farcry Instincts or something. Maybe they'll make a more official announcement later

    you do know the PS3 is going to cost even more right? so keep saving. I'm getting both but right now guesstimates have the PS3 from around 500+ as even Sony said it will be "expensive" and that kinda scares me.

    NR...I'll be passing on that one

    Sorry, read through most of it, but I'm not positive if this was said yet... From what I know, only certain XBox games can be played on the 360, and those are the ones that were high selling, such as Halo games and most likely the Morrowind games... Some other games can be played, but you have to download something to your 360 to play them, and it may cost money to download...
