    XBox 360 Price Announced: $299 Standard/ $399 Premium

    I think there will be some fairly available around launch. $400 is a lot - it will deter some. Even though I've pre-ordered, I'm kinda ambivalent. I agree w/ the post launch lack of titles - my PSP is gathering a bit of dust now. It just seems to be the way with all systems. I can wait until...

    Nintendo E3 Conference for May 17th, 2005

    I thought I heard that DVD playback not included in this (possibly an add-on.) Anyone know more on this? I figure they'll do like MS did with the xbox - in order to save money, they won't include playback with the base console...

    PS3 Controller

    I'm going to go with "it looks silly and uncomfortable." Not sure what they were thinking.

    I am a tad disappointed. Given that everyone says the PSP is a PS2 equivalent, you'd think there would be a bunch of easy ports. Biggest dissappointment? GT4 Mobile was nowhere to be seen. Can you say 2006?

    My guess is that the first batch shipped to stores had the disc. We are likely on the second batch of units already. I think we've got another month for these units to be rather plentiful. As soon as GTA hits mid-may, we should see a spike in sales.

    I just looked at the DS release list - nothing really peaks my interest until late summer perhaps (Lunar?) It looks like GTA will be the game of choice once I finish Untold Legends.

    Ummm - No. This would likely help piracy. IMO, piracy helps no one.

    Anyone else addicted to the PSP?

    Untold legends has been great so far - quite satisfied. It's an impressively immersive portable experience.

    Dell is now selling the Sony 1GB stick for ~95. Ships in 1-2 weeks, but a heck of a deal.

    Xbox 2

    I'd agree with the speculation it will be out around x-mas. Ballmer et all have certainly seemed to hint at it. Sony is on track for Q3-Q4 06 it seems, and MS has said they would be out first this time. My guess? Expect a mid-november Xbox2 launch, and then expect Halo 3 the same street date...

    What did you pickup for PSP?

    I got Untold Legends finally. It's quite good - very Diablo II like. The thing I am most impressed by is how immersive a gaming experience the PSP is. I've had several gameboys and nothing touches the PSP in terms of immersion.

    It would have to be memory stick - unless they make some add on peripheral for storage of some sort (not sure if/how they would even do that.) My guess is that it would be like the "Sony Connect" service - just for movies. I'd be in if i could download like a movie for hte plane for like 2-3...

    IMHO, I think it's a great little form factor for taking on trips, out shopping, to the doctor's office etc and watching part of a video. For me, when I go on trips, I have enough gadgets. I don't want a stand alone DVD player too, so this is nice for watching through something quickly.

    I think what you are seeing is the difference in philosophies w/ net gaming with the current generation of consoles and handhelds. MS basically said to all game companies - "you will connect this way and you all do it the same way" vs. everyone else who basically enabled the consoles to do this...
