the real power of xbox 360
for those of you who do not get the joke, the original xbox had problems with their power cord causing fires, so they had to recall a bunch of them. looking at the xbox 360's power supply (roughly the size of david duchovny's love muscle, it could pack a

consol games are the way to go, computers = slow and inefficient, now seriously tell me that you don't think that your PC or MAC can out perform an Xbox 360, because I know it can't, and you know it can't

From the looks of the Madden game coming for 360 PC ALREADY outperform it. Another Console that's all hype pretending to be better then PC's.

"computers = slow and inefficient, now seriously tell me that you don't think that your PC or MAC can out perform an Xbox 360," computers evolve. consoles don't...give it a year and mainstream comps will easily outperform every console on the mark

Ok, I really have to ask this: Why the f*ck does it matter how big the PSU is? You're just gonna shove it either behind your TV or behind your 360 if it's on a shelf, so it's not like it's an eyesore. It was fairly amusing the first time it was pos

This is an absolutely horrible YTMND. It makes no sense. What is the fire for? And why does it show 9/11?
November 15th, 2005

"This is an absolutely horrible YTMND. It makes no sense. What is the fire for? And why does it show 9/11?" The Xbox's power supply started electrical fires, so the Xbox360's power supply which is, well, the size of an Xbox (:P) is enough to level

umm... okay?
November 15th, 2005

for those wondering what this means: the xbox's power supply (or cord) would occasionally spark up and start fires, so the new xbox 360 is gonna be bad enough to take down skyscrapers

That's funny. Sony had to send out new dev kits for the Ps3 because the ones the devs had overheated and MELTED.

Okay, first of all, compared to this, the GameCube power supply is tiny. It's about one third the size of the 360 power supply. Second, STFU *ssholes, Madden sucks cock and is not representative of next gen graphics

Clever YTMND. XBox360 and PS3 are about equal in power it seems. High-end PCs cost about as much as a car, but they are more capable in the long run. I'd rather have a console.
November 15th, 2005

And as for Nintendo Revolution, it'll either get left behind, or draw equal with whoever comes out best of the Microsoft-Sony scramble due to it's... uniqueness. The ideal second console.

Top end hardware put together and configured right in a PC will ALWAYS beat ANY console's graphics/performance. Not only will it surpass in FPS, but also reach higher resolutions AND utilize more advanced features of the graphics core architecture. PC >

November 16th, 2005

70$ per game? Are you ****ing stupid? MS said themselves that most games will cost 50$, the bigger ones 60$. And the Ps3 will at LEAST be 400$, if not more.
