Xbox 360 w/Blueray will debut in Q3.


I wonder how it will compare to the PS3? I want the Sony because it can stream content to a PSP and I'll get the '360 because I already have games.
If the PS3 is one of the better player's, I'm sure the Xbox can match or exceed it.

wow...that is surprising since there's no way Microsoft wanted to back a Sony standard. Microsoft must have realized they have no choice with hd-dvd being dumped.

I'm in the same boat as you--I've got a 360 and love it. To top it off I've never been a Sony-backer for anything. The idea of buying a ps3 doesn't sit well.

I would expect (hope?) that the performance of a new blu-ray machine would beat the ps3 given the ps3's age. I'll keep my fingers crossed about that anyway ;)

Where did you read about the blu-ray xbox?

Microsoft says NO but the rumors continue. Do you think MS would lie to anyone?

According to MS the red ring of death is here to stay.
Boy I would hate to use my XBox or PS3 as a movie player with all that fan noise it isnt practical.
This time around, I heard it on the "Kim Kommando" show.
Although the fan is loud, this is easily covered up by placing in a cabinet. IMO, PS3 offers the best for BR dvd for now as it can handle software upgrades to BR 2.0.
