  • PS3 or Xbox (and an old TV)

    Not to start the equivalent of a mac-pc war but
    PS3 or Xbox?
    Will either new-release box work on a pre-digital TV?
    Move/Kinetic waste of money?

    I only have a 360, and I love it. No Kinect for me though, the family has a Wii if I really want to play something like that. Lots of the games are coming out "enhanced" for the Kinect but you don't have to have one for them to work. I know my Xbox is connected via the component cables... I thought the new ones all shit with HDMI cables and HDMI output, but they might accept the component cables as well, just check best buys site and it should tell you right there. You can also get the "older" non-slim model, its basically the same just in a little different case.

      I think they both ship with component and hdmi cables, so you can use component cables for a non hd tv. In most peoples opinion xbox has sony beat with game selection, but ps3 with more sophisticated game engine and blue ray technology means better graphics and more memory per disc, as well as the option to watch blue rays on it.

      As far as motion gaming I know a lot of people complain about kinect not being as sensitive or accurate with the controls as you would like, and theres not much of a game selection. If you want to go the motion route youre better off just getting a Wii in my opinion.

      Thing is though, it looks like the next generation of console is just around the corner, with nintendo already showing off new concepts and hardware for their next one (they usually come out a bit before the other two)

        The second one allows the smiling face to be a little more obvious. There are some interesting things going with all the shapes that I think work nicely.

        What I like less is the orange background....

        @B: I kind of get that. I bought a pricey ASUS ultrabook instead of getting a cheaper, more powerful custom rig. Regarding building your own, I guess the difference is in whether or not you're interested....

        @PrintDriver: You may be right about Mac being more forgiving. I suppose it does try to protect people from the nitty-gritty. The world of Mac is alien to me. Even weird driver issues in Linux Mint are...

        Hello,

        from my point of view I think the second one is easier to read so if I had to chose I'd go with this one.

        I'm a bit concerned by the amount of details in your logo thought,...
