So I hear they're coming out with some new consoles or something? PS3? Xbox2? Something like that...

I don't know much about ps3 I only know about Xbox2. I know it is supposed to be released sometime late this year. I don't know what it really looks like but one site I was at showed the Xbox2 looking like a round clear globe. And you put the cd in sideways. Looked pretty cool. But I really doubt that it is legit. The one game I'm hoping to get when it is released is Oblivion. Yes another addition to the Elder Scrolls. This one looks so so good. Here I'll get some screen shots for you guys. Well I'm kinda stupid and it's not letting me insert pics. Someone will have to tell me how. Here is the link to the screenshots http://oblivion.edgegaming.com/screenshots.htm Now there is two games that absolutly must get when they come out. Spore and Oblivion.

I've gotta admit, those screens for the new Elder Scrolls look absolutely amazing. If the X-Box Next or whatever its called can handle those kinds of graphics then I can't see how Playstation 3 can compete.  :-\

I could not agree with you more. Wouldn't it be really cool if Spore came out for the XBox2, by the way? I would never have to leave my bedroom.

I heard they are making 3 different types of X-Box:Next (or whatever it's called). I also saw a rumor flying around that Nintendo's Revolution will have touchpad controllers. I have no idea how they are going to work this, or even if they are. I guess we'll have to see. I hope they're as sleek and form fitting as the GCN controllers.
-Just like Gaming Steve all of my ideas, suggestions, and comments are merely edjucated guesses. These are based on prior experience and current released info.-

I heard somehwere that the ps3 is changing from a red laser to a white laser and thats pretty much the only difference(which will allow more data to be red on a disk).

Afraid so --
which reminds me...
Won't they be skyrocketing the price of these NextGen monsters?

I'm quite sure that's going to be the case, because Xbox did it when it first came out (about $300), and it makes me sick to my stomach if I'm going to have to put out $400+ for a console system.

X-box is going to be the weaker machine (although it might be faster than nintendo, nothing really known about revolution yet). Whole reason is to drop the price. I remember when x-box came out, just the system with 1 controller was like 500$+ CAD..GC was like 300$ CAD then, which makes a big difference...and when I look at games like RE:4, you wonder why it needs all the power.

Anyways, it appears microsoft is trying to keep their price down, and from what I've heard it looks like the PS3 will be the more expensive.

Of course, all I'm going on is rumours and I'm on the back end of the hillbilly side of the grapevine!!! That and Steve's podcast.

Yeah but revolution is going to be the cheapest.  That's how they beat the PSP.
