I thought it would be fun to compare the press release hype of recent consoles with what actually is. Unfortunately, I've only been to find a good press release for the PS2; I couldn't dig up any for the Dreamcast or N64, and haven't looked for X-Box or GC.
So, if you can find any, post a link and a snippet here, and we can laughat the claims of how our favorite console was to alter the very fabric of our game-laying universe.
