After much speculation, Microsoft have finally confirmed that the next-gen Xbox will be called Xbox 360 and that it will reach the US, Europe and Japan before Christmas '05...
But will it be any good?
And more importantly - how will it stack up against the near mythically powerful PS3?
I bought my PS2 (pre-ordered and picked up on launch day) it has been a trusty companion for almost 5 years with no faults and tons of great games that have eaten many hours of my life. I also have an Xbox but I won it online and have not played it even half as much... This time round I must choose only one next-gen console (or my wife will cut off my balls in my sleep) and 360 does have some very nice features:
512 MB of memory for high definition games
Progressive-scan DVD movie playback out of the box
And it looks like this:
"Xbox 360 - look no wires!"
So... I await the first look at Sony's PS3 which will be unveiled at E3 next week with much interest (and am personally hoping that it doesn't look quite so 'girly' as the 360!!)...
