    Fuk you, you PS3 owner!

  • james

    this one should be a lot better than the old 360 as this one can shut itself down if it is going to overheat, and this new 360 slim looks better

    ''The new console is not only shorter and thinner than its predecessor but runs cooler as well which will translate into less hardware failures.''

    Does this mean that the 360 kinnect WONT get the red light indicating system overheating or hardware failures?

    Or does it mean that while they hav tried their best the red light is still something that may occur in the event of hardware failure or sytem overheating?

    So let's see they make is shiny black like the PS3, add wifi like the PS3, The new kinnect/camera like the PS3 eye and a sub program to monitor the cooling. If the thing was fixed and was cooling properly, why would you need a software app to slow down the system to even monitor cooling. What about true 1080P like the PS3 didnt hear anything about that…

  • Dill

    fuck u x box is awsome now get out of here u ps3 bitch

  • Cigi

    Student 1 – you really sound like a first grade student.

    What crap are you talking about – real 1080p – totally rubbish. Both the Ps3 and xbox are running at 1080p – actually many MP games are running at higher frame rates on the xbox.

    If you where MS i would definitely also make a monitoring of the heat – with the issues they have had. But this does not at all mean the foresee problems.

    You suck crap m8

    Xbox 360 is beaten by Nintendo Wii when it comes to functionality and ergonomics`,,

  • Bsimons3494

    I will have to be honest,,, I never could get in to the Wii. Just could not do it. but with that said, you cannot even compare the Kinnect with the Wii. The Kinnect is totally hands free. I tried it and it is so cool. I was by myself with a huge smile on my face. I mean while you are on a raft going down a raging river. If you raise your right hand the avatar on the screen does as well. If you squat down he dowes as well. It will pretty much mimmick your ever move. You have got to get this now before it is on ebay at 2 or 3 x the price.

  • Abc

    I disagree. All you have to do is look at the xbox funny and it red rings. I myself got red ringed, and all my friends got red ringed. I switched to ps3 and noticed EVERYTHING is better. I tried a demo of the xbox kinnect and it was TERRIBLE. Terribly glitchy and unresponseive. Not to mention certain shades of darker skin have ever more trouble playing the kinnect. Microsoft for the loss !

  • Td

    Is there anything like black ops or Madden or any of those types of games coming online or is this pretty much going to have the silly games now avail like on the PS3 motion.

    Kinnect has some really innovative features, but I won’t turn from Wii to it as Nintendo 3DS is coming soon.

    Anyway, thanks for the review, kinnect is one of the best of its kind out there.
