Here's hoping they don't rush the hardware and cheap out on parts on their next outing.

Consensus around the office gamers is that the 360 is beloved but from strictly a technical standpoint very inferior. Just about everyone here has 1 or more hardware failures since purchase. So far, no failures on the PS3 crowd.

The 360 does have more games but most big hits are multi-platform now that the platforms have matured.

You may still prefer a 360, which is fine. Last thing we want is a console monopoly. Just thought I'd pass on the thoughts from our local fellow geeks.

We just had our second failure in a year. First one was a fried video output. This one is the famous RROD. Not impressed. With the number of failures one would think a recall would be in order...

I am on my 4th xbox 360. My first 3 died from the RROD. I managed to get something free everytime though. (games, a controller, some free xbox live ect.)

Microsoft strongly denies XBOX Blu-ray rumors, again...

I love this part "He concludes "it will not be the next DVD format." "
Ummm, isn't it already the next format, maybe not the most prolific format, but the next.

It must just be killing Microsoft to have to even think about putting Sony technology next to their own.

I have to say I must be one of the rare few to make it without a failed Xbox hardware wise. Never had the RROD or anything, and mine is from about 6 months from launch. I attribute it to never being in a cabinet, although I'm probably not alone there.

I bought mine right at launch and never had a problem, It's been in a cabinet the entire time.

I've had 1 RROD that got me a refurbished unit, and the other day I got a "warning", but all was fine with a reboot.

What concerns me most is that it only gets maybe an hour of use a week!
