Good Time to be a Gamer

As many people know, this week is E3.  This means, that all the soon to be released stuff gets previewed this week.  The most notable stuff that’s come out in the last few days is the Xbox 360, and the PS3.  Nintendo has released some stuff on the Revolution, but nothing to the extent of Microsoft and Sony.

Needless to say these next gen consoles are going to rock.  Microsoft has finally realized what the original Xbox should’ve been (and actually almost is with xbmc).  Sony, has, at least on paper, produced a machine that seems unheard of with respect to hardware.

Personally, I’m looking forward to the 360 more than the ps3.  Yeah, the ps3 seems to have the edge with hardware specs, but who knows if that will really mean anything, plus it’s coming out after the xbox.  The things I really am looking forward to the 360 are the multimedia hub aspect to it, because, frankly, that’s pretty much all I use my xbox for right now.  However, the dual HD outputs and the ability to have 7 wireless controllers on the ps3 entices me also.

I guess it all comes back to the title…it’s a good time to be a gamer.
