I have an itty bitty hookup with the head distribution bloke for Electronics Boutique. He has a few secured in advance already. One of which he'll let me borrow for the first few weeks... he owes me. Looking forward to trying it out.

Preorders can be done at Future shop, Best buy, Walmart, Electronics Boutique... amongst other places.

depends in terms of numbers, yeah. how those numbers are applied for gaming is a whole other story though:

To each their own, I don't really play games too much to begin with anyway.

after Halo2 i was extremely dissapointed with XBOX and its been collecting dust every since...

im gonna give PS3 a try this time around, since i know its backwards comatible with PS2 and i want Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 (SquareSoft at its finest!)

I can say for a fact that PS3 will blow the competition off the start...i mean it has a lot better franchises than XBOX...who do they have? jus Bungie with Halo! unless they get some better licenses and better games, PS3 will kill em, yet again!

I have been an Xbox fan from the beginning. However, the only reason was for Halo. I am going to give PS3 a try... Hopefully it's the right choice.

OR, just get both.

whoa! Halo 2 is an amazing game - hands down, how come it didn't live up to your expectations?
