Instead of starting a new thread I will just bump this up in case anyone is interested.

Unreal Tournament 3 demo is out today. Plays good on my laptop but my home system choked (old work pc). I am building a system next week when the parts all arrive with q6600 and 8800gtx that will definitely play it.

What? I was a HUGE GT3/GT4 *****, and I said nothing would ever knock those games off their pedestals. I tried Forza2 and I'm in love. Laguna Seca, Nurburgring, Road Atlanta, and Sebring, and that's just the tracks my friend has unlocked. Drifting is a lot more realistic, and I love the motor swap options. CRX SI with a built F20C and RWD, bitches

Halo 3 sucks my left nut. Whoever decided that moving the reload button was an acceptable idea should be hanged.

What's wrong with the bumpers? I have a ton of complaints about Halo 3, the reload button placement is not one of them.

Still a good game.

360 has more good games out right now than the PS3.

Down the road, PS3's got GT5 coming, but 360's got Forza 2 already (not to mention Halo 3 and others)...plus Mass Effect is coming to 360.

PS3 can run a separation bootable partition with Linux, though, which means it'll be able to run the new Linux builds of Xbox Media Center (I know, they need to come up with a new name for it if it's going to be cross-platform).

Sold my 4 Xbox 1's a few days ago for $1100. Bought XBox 360 #3 yesterday for $255 and XBox 360 #4 yesterday (a few hours later) for $80. It has something wrong with the DVD player. Since a new one is only $50 at most I'll have $130 in it. Not too shabby. I should be up and running for 4-way Halo 3 (system link with each person having their own monitor) or GRAW2 in a few days.

It will look at least as good as HDTV, if not better, dending on stuff. It'll make a standard DVD look like ****.

it really depends on the disc and the mastering. people bitched like nuts when fifth element came out on bluray because it was worse than the original dvd.
