I'll go xbox then PS3 then revolution. Controller on ps3 isn't too bad imo appears better than ps1-2 but essentially the same controller just ergonomic which means it still favours button bashers.

PS3 will have better game, Xbox will have marginally better graphics and Nintendo will suck arse and be for kids as per usual.

you missed the "phantom"

and xbox2 Smile , no, the xbox 360 isnt the xbox 2, xbox 2 is a different system alltogether, although i think its hardware is based off 360, 360 is like the xbox 2 "concept".

id pick the ps3, mind you, that controller is they ghey wif aidses.

and all these technical specifications are useless, you cant really compare them to anything.

I'd be getting the one with the better games, so it would be a toss up between the PS3 and Xbox 360, but if the GT series keeps going then it would have to be a PS3.

PS3 and 360 look close.. games are 50-50.. the only downfall of 360 is no blue ray Sad but then its easier to burn 360 games rather then ps3, so my vote goes to xbox Razz and i got no idea where nintendo is going :S

I totally don't understand why nintendo made a bloody remote control the main controller for the new N.Revolution. I understand the want for wand, but surely they could have done some kind of pistol grip type arrangement, kinda like a StarTrek next.gen. phaser/tricorder thingy (whatever it is).

Y'know - something like this (symmetrical for southpaws and orthodox):

Infinium labs has been a farce, start to finish. They haven't actually demonstrated a working product. So far all they've shown are 3D renderings and mock-ups. They've been signing deals with a number of software manufacturers (most notably Sun Microsystems) and seeking investors in between suing news and humour sites (search for Infinium Labs vs HardOCP or Penny Arcade if you're interested).

Even google lists them in the directory under Allegedly Unethical Firms.

no offence here eldarq, but loads of stuff "on teh inhernets" is imaginary.

moller skycar - fake

coates rotary valve engine - fake

penis enlargement pills - um, fake (so i've heard)

Laughing

anyway, what are these things going to cost? i'll probably do the usual and wait until they are all in the 250 dollar bracket (in actual dollars) and they have worked out how to chip them. then i'll buy one and never play it like with my xbox.

It's not real. It's been around for about 5 years. They've been gathering investors to make a system that is STILL not viable. There have been news reports and writeups about it, as well as background checks on the people involved. Read them, and you'll see. Smile
