Smile XBox 360

Hi,
The Microsoft XBox 360 is finally out. I was at the Best Buy store yesterday evening and there was a huge line of 500 people or more that gathered to buy the xbox which was supposed to be open for sale at midnight. Such mad frenzy for a gaming console !!
I had a chance to play the xbox demo and the graphics are amazing. The 3d image processing power is just awesome.
In many ways the console resembles the compact Dell desktop CPU

Happy Gaming,

Oh yeah - my dad was telling me - they showed on TV on the day of XBox 360 release,a guy had a portable TV or something with him packed in his car,and started playing right outside the Local Store from where he bought his new console !!!!...I'm not joking guys !
Also,nationwide it's sold out..and so,sellers on ebay are taking advantage and selling it at higher prices than retail value !! -

I think to reveal the full graphics power of XBox 360,we need a HD Plasma/HD Compatible Projection/LCD Screen..

Planning to buy one in Jan 2006.

It has to be good when it is powered by 3-core IBM PowerPC-based 3.2GHz CPU and an ATI GPU with 10MB embedded and 512MB GDDR3 memory!

Do you knw that Microsoft bought the rights to this IBM chip and hence they can make it ans name it as Microsoft chip.

And that iMAC etc also 'used' IBM processors. And that teh contract is now over and now iMac would come with Intel chips

just 300 dollars according to microsoft.

...http://www.gamespot.com/news/2005/08...s_6131245.html

Xbox 360 Core System - $299 (299 Euros, 209 GBP)
Xbox 360 console
Wired controller
Detachable faceplate
Xbox Live Silver membership
Standard AV cables

Xbox 360 - $399 (399 Euros, 279 GBP)
Xbox 360 console
20GB detachable hard drive
Wireless controller
Wireless Xbox Live headset
High-definition AV cables
Ethernet cable
Xbox 360 Media Remote Control (limited time)

The second one is the better buycoz it has a 20GB HDD to save stuffs and wireless headset. No need to frighten the kids/parents while you play
