This doesn't have much to do with anything, but you know that there are probably a ton of kids out there who really want the Playstation 3 for Christmas who just aren't going to be able to get one, even though their parents have trooped all over their city/county/state looking for it. So some of the parents of those kids are going to say, "Hmmm, this XBox 360 looks good too..." and they're going to get that instead, plus a few nice games. The kid is going to open it up, look at it and either say or think, "WHERE'S MY PS3!!!" As one who's owned a 360 for a week (and is enjoying it so much that I'm still deathly worried that there's going to be some technical malfunction with the console itself), I can tell you that I haven't regretted it at all. On a slightly related note, I think that the 360's controller might be tied for the best controller ever, in terms of fitting your hand (the other being the Game Cube's controller), which I really feel makes a difference in terms of 3D play. Unrelatedly, 256MB of RAM for PS3 or 512MB of RAM for the 360... I wonder how that translates into functionality. Any theories folks? Back to the subject though, I feel really sad for the parents of whichever little Veruca Salt, who whines because they didn't get the newest, fanciest gadget for Christmas.
