Had to dominate the ghosts that lived there, but it's all good now. This game never ends.
I know.

Isn't it awesome?

By the way, while I intend to get an HDTV someday, how are these consoles when it comes to playing on an old-fashioned SDTV?

Melon, either system should look good on a regular TV, both come with SD cables out of the box.

You might have to tinker with some settings for aspect ratio and so on...

If and when I get an XBox, I'll probably go with an Elite one as well.

You'll manage, but they arnt very sharp. So detailed graphics may be a pain in the arse to see.

On the other hand, PS2's and anything pre-Ps2 looks shite on a HDTV. Its give and take really.

Well, here's a complete twist in my story. I've got an XBox 360 Pro unit now!

What happened is that, due to a promotion at Rogers Plus (one of the illustrious monopolies in Canada), I had a $100 gift card toward the purchase of a game console that I could only spend there. Well, when it came time to buy a PS3, they only had 40 GB consoles with the old SIXAXIS controllers (instead of the DualShock 3 controllers you get now) and--get this--were priced $100 more than the regular market price in Canada--i.e., down the street at Future Shop, I could get an 80 GB console for $100 less! Their XBox 360 bundles weren't priced in such obsolete terms, and all they had were XBox 360 Pro bundles. One of them was old; it advertised GTA IV as "coming soon in 2007," while the other was a quite recent 2008 holiday bundle, with a console manufactured in August 2008. So, it's not a Jasper CPU, and it's not a PS3, but I think I fared pretty well here. Now I'll get to play "Fallout 3" with the extra downloadable content, plus I picked up "The Last Remnant," a Square-Enix RPG that is horrendously delayed for the PS3, but already out for the XBox 360. And, oddly enough, it cost $10 less at Rogers Plus than at Future Shop. I'm probably going to get a PS3 later this year, and, hopefully, it'll be $100 cheaper with a larger hard drive and (dreaming here) restored PS2 backwards compatibility.

The reason Sony took it out is because the Emotion Engine (required to play PS2 games and good for absolutely nothing else in a PS3) cost about $100 to put into each individual unit. So you can either have no PS2 compatibility and pay $399 for an 80GB system missing a piece that 96% of users will have no use for, or have the compatibility but pay (at least) $499 for the same system.

That's awesome to hear. What other games are you considering picking up?
