    Good on you mate, its gonna be a great console and personally i think will beat all the others to be top dog.
    I have the original XBOX and its chipped with software, its like a mini pc media wise can watch divx xvid mpegs avi's etc listen to mp3's view pics etc. Hope the 360 will be chippable.

    Prefered the xbox to PS2's and gamecube thing anyway, and the 360 should do alot better than xbox did.

    I'm gonna wait til they get the HD DVD drive in them and prices have come down a bit, but definetly gonna be buying one.

    Yeah PS3 for me too man. But i have heard that nintendo are developing some kind of VR ( virtual reality). Not sure if this is true, but if so nintendo could be the most popular.

    But i'm not payin over £200 thats for sure.

    Man the PS3 and the 360 are going to compete the hell out of each other. In the past it's always been xbox and PS2, PS2 beat xbox every time. But now Microsoft have really listened to the people and developed this 360 which is going to give the PS3 some serious competition.

    Sony themselves have said the ps3 will be an expensive machine to buy, so doubt they will be £200 for quite a while after launch, whether this is a marketing ploy and they are gonna release it cheaper i don't know.

    And personally i don't think that blue ray technology will take off as well as the hd dvd. Just take a look at how many and which companies are backing hd dvd compared to blueray and you'll see what i mean.

    Will be good to see how it all plays out though.

    £280 is the standard price for the xbox 360 - you get a heap of accessories with it and you are saving over £150 with that package.

    The Xbox 360 core system is £210 and doesn't come with wireless pads and only the basic live kit.

    If you are going to pre-order it your best bet is to go to your local GAME shop, they are very very good at getting the acquirred amount of stock to cover pre-orders and more as they are the best game/game console retailers and offer the best deals on consoles nearly always because of the bulk buying they do and the good relationships they have with all the suppliers.
