Well, that extra $100 (from $299 to $399) seems well spent. I think MS knows they have to take a bath (lose money) on the core hardware, but they realize people will buy (some of) those extras to get the best experience.

well it has been said that MS isn't looking for profit, they're looking for living room domination so that LATER they can jack the price and get the benjamins.

but it just seems like were screwing with us....for the longest time, we've been hearing the rumors of the 300 dollar price point, it wasnt till only a few weeks prior to the official pricing/package announcement that we got wind that the HD might not be standard. it just seems to me that the designed the core package to deliberately be the cripple package..so yeah you can game with it, but if you want the full benefits, gotta either buy a separate hard drive or just buy the premium package outright. and as much as I like to bitch about stupid peripherals like wireless controllers being nothing but a gimmick and the silly proprietary headset, that extra 100 dollars does net you some nice extras.

I may not need those HD cables now, but hopefully, in a year, I will.

though even though ill be getting the premium package, I'll at the very least be getting a play and charge kit and/or an extra battery pack, cuz there is no way i'm relying on disposable batteries.

but anyway, my point is, they do seem to be looking at a little less living room domination, a little more profit this time...cuz man, those peripherals are a much bigger rape job than Xbox1...100 bucks for the wireless network adapter? please!

I don't know what it is, but something about wikipedia doesn't sit well with me..so I go with the tried and true dictionary.com definition which is a denial of the existence of any god(s)

as for whether believing in gods or denying gods existence are two sides of the same coin...I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree. In my opinion, both stances assume one definitively knows the 'true' answer...which is very presumptuous in my opinion.

me personally...I could accept the idea that we are constructed beings...I just don't buy into the idea that assuming we are constructed by someone or something's design, that they/it didn't want us going around worshipping them and starting wars and other atrocities in their name.

I'm liking the game so far myself...just got the surge power....fun

how do you know they're killing the trilogy and future patches..or is that just speculation....you may very well be right granted..but just want to know if you have a source.

"being an atheist is the only real sane answer. "

saying that you know there isn't a god is just as arrogant as saying you know there is one and that he follows your belief structure.

admitting that you don't know, aka agnostic, is where true sanity lies

I agree, the HDTV cables and the headset I can do without, make the HD standard, otherwise developers will NOT take advantage of it.

and with the whole 360 for $360 MS can claim that they are witty too.

can't believe the wireless network adapter is 100 bones...what a ripoff. guess its wired connections for me

if you've read any comic books as all...you're going to inevitably like the comics you've read, and be negative or at least indifferent to the comics you haven't read.

never got into hulk, or daredevil, so their movies didn't have any chance for me. especially when banner's dad turned into god or whatever the fuck he was.

gotta agree with everyone else here though...alba is pole smokingly hot...but FF is going to tank...Dark Angel proved that hot chicks alone can't carry a TV show. Alias is slowly discovering the same thing...they can't keep showing Garner in "Skimpy Fetish Outfit of the Week" (tm) and expect us not to get bored eventually. though admittedly last season did end with a fun cliffhanger.

No Spoilers: but Batman Begins definately lives up to the hype. very scary...even for a cynic such as myself. Its about time they put the Dark back into the Dark Knight!

and as a side benefit...get people off the Lucas bandwagon finally.

And why the hell didn't Sci Fi pick up Firefly. I'd rather see NEW episodes on SCI FI...not syndicated...I've got the DVD set...every friday I'm just going to be reminded about how some moron exec at FOX cancelled this underrated gem.

This isn't really news...anyone who saw the E3 trailer found out the voice talent was in.


god I hope this game doesn't suck. screw FPS...JoWood should have combined the Stargate license with the Silent Storm engine. that would rule!

I don't know first hand..but my understanding is that the game itself wasn't made for K/M so yeah..even if you have the adapter....the cursor only moves as fast as it would if you had the regular controller....in other words....slow...no wrist flicks or twitch movements.

we're being limited by the software..not the hardware.

if anything is a constant, its that people will find a way to get around things like that though.

granted I'm sure its a small percentage...but how many gamers have their consoles hooked up to their monitor instead of having it in a TV room

I do predict the death of PC gaming...not because the consoles are better..but because the consoles are getting more and more PC-like and are drawing developers away from PC gaming and onto console gaming. It may not happen completely with this new generation of consoles coming out..but as long as consoles start acquiring more and more PC-like attributes I think it will happen.....so in a way..PC gaming won't die...it will merely shift platforms. I think the attraction of developing for one hardware configuration instead of the hojillion in the PC world is too good to pass up.

and until someone finally really does innovate and comes up with a better way to control shooter games that is better than K/M, your PC Refugees, if you will, are going to want a way to keep playing their shooters without using a controller.

especially if video cards continue to get more and more expensive...PC gaming is definately dying.

yeah, Halo (or Halo 2 for that matter) is definately NOT the best shooter around by a long shot. and its way overhyped. But I'd still buy Halo2 if it were to come out for PC

now that the Xbox360 has standard non-proprietary USB plugs in it.. It would be nice to see developers supporting K/M in console games. doubt it will happen due to the drastic unlevel playing field of controller vs K/M but its a move I'd definately support

I guess this means we can't make fun of Iraq anymore for that one pre-911 election where Saddam got 100% of the vote.

Oh I liked HaloPC too, but that wasn't what his response was, it WASN'T worth the wait.

took them forever to do the port, and it still had huge bugs, yeah they fixed many of them, but it was still pretty inexcusable.

Haven't heard anything recently to counter this (but then again, I haven't been looking..to be fair), but last I did hear was that Halo2 was staying an xbox exclusive.....like Jade Empire.

I'd certainly buy a Halo2 PC port though I still wouldn't classify it as 'worth the wait'


edit: yeah, it looks like you can put the Xbox360 horizontal, but only if its supported on the edges...for those with a premium of shelf space and had their Xbox1 hanging over the edges even slightly...that could be a problem. so hopefully there is some sort of support on the bottom.

huh...one of those side pics of the 360 looks an awful lot like Dell's old Optiplexes back when they were beige

we used to have a boatload of them at work,

and yeah, I gotta agree that the 'trackball' is probably just a spot for the logo....cuz you know how important it is to keep advertising your product even after someone has bought it....god forbid one day you wake up..start playing video games and suddenly forget what platform you're playing on..

cuz shit..I can't tell you how many times thats happened to me after I peeled off my Xbox logo..
