In case you somehow jammed your head so far up your....nevermind.
The Xbox 360 is out, and you will have one hell of a time getting a hold of one for less than a grand (ive got my premium w/ cod2 up for sale around cristmas for $8000)
We have reviews of the games, and a very interesting article on a certain something about the 360 some of you have definately noticed.ImpressionsPower
The machine is comparable to a top of the line PC, but dont let your hopes down just yet. This is the first batch of games from all of these developers on the new system. There is much to be learned and many of the games dont take full advantage of the 3 different cores. Keep your hopes up for better performing games.
There are many now centralized systems for the xbox, for instance you can change the music in any game to whatever you want: a connected ipod, your media center PC, or even your XP SP2 PC. When you have to enter text in any game you use a tool built ontop of the game instead of in the game. It's crazy and I've only touched on so little. This is more of a PC multimedia device except it only has a 20GB HD for storing your pictures and music.
Every game has dynamic lighting. It makes it so much better overall, in call of duty a guy was hiding and I saw his shadow reload, popped around the corner, bam, thats realism. In-fact the game is so realistic, I have dropped my habit of needing to use Inverse Y Axis. I guess it's because im not flying a set of hands and a gun anymore, im walking in the 1940s around europe and africa.Overall
Damn. Just wow. I'll leave it at that. If you didnt get one, I honestly pity you.
