The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Next Generation Gaming Consoles

    Well if you're getting a new console, which are you getting? X-Box 360, PS3, or that GameCube Generation thing? If you aren't into games and so on, don't flame the forum please Haha... Thanks and Happy 4th of July

    I will have all three. On launch day. A little bit of disposable income is a dangerous thing. (Notice I said "little")

    The XBox 360 becasue of Morrowind. The PS3 becasue it the PlayStation and traditionally has had the best games (IMHO). The Revolution because you'll be able to download the old NES and SNES games--the were da bomb before Play Station.

    Or you could just chip your current PS2 or Xbox and run emulators on them

    I have a chipped Xbox with a 250gb HDD, and basically every game for Amiga, Commodore, NES, SNES, Sega, n64, Atari, etc.

    On topic: I plan on buying both, seeing as I have the Xbox and PS2 currently.

    I've seen the Killzone 2 video, pretty good But I like the X-Box 360's Quake IV video.. It's unbelievable. I think I'm going to go with the route of the X-Box 360.. Don't get me wrong, I have a PS1 and PS2, but the X-Box is all about online capabilities. I know the PS3 will have online functions, but I just don't think it will be as big as the X-Box 360's IMO. I'm looking forward to the computer games that will be comming to X-Box 360.. They're thinking about bringing WoW into it along with some other titles. Anyways, keep your choices commin and your opinions Thanks

    Yeah i'm sure old bill is filling for bank foreclosure as we speak! I think i'm going with the xbox360, just because I don't have a xbox right now but that I do have a ps2. Why not spruce your computer up?

    Xbox 360.....although I've heard rumors that it could approach $400. I'm too lazy to do my own research on this and I'm not even sure if this is correct.

    Fortunately, the release dates will be spread out, so I won't be dropping a grand in, like, a month.

    My understanding is that it's going to be very affordable, as well. The technology isn't very advanced (which is fine, since for Nintendo it's about the gameplay, and not sweat dripping off a lineman's nose), and seems to be quite small as well, about the size of 3 DVD cases stacked together, I believe.

    It's obviously a completely different angle then the other 2 systems, which will be busy fighting each other for domination of the #1 slot.

    Hail Atari! Anyways.. I got a tidbit of info. The XBox 360 is going to be sold at $299 US, and the PS3 is going to be $399 US and $425 in yen for Japan. The PS3 was approximately $495 to make, so they're going to suffer a $1.8 BILLION dollar loss the first year. They're going to sell like hell, but they're losing a lot Take a look at IGN, GameSpot, and just about any other online gaming website if you don't believe me on this.. Anyways.. It's because the PS3 did so much research on The Cell video chip thing that's so advanced it cost them I think around a good billion dollars in research. Of course, the PS3 will have more sales than the X-Box 360, but that must suck for the first year of loss. But all the other years is when they'll start making a profit. To reply to a few comments on here.. The X-Box 360 will support more computer games and are looking into games such as World of Warcraft, GuildWars, and the Final Fantasy XI team is already in the process of making a product for the launch date. Sounds interesting.. I can't wait to see what this technology can do
