    Here's the link. Pretty cool article, talks about the hardware specs and the software requirements. As an owner of an HDTV, I am excited that it will be a requirement that each game be programmed to play in HD.

    I can't wait to play NCAA on the Xbox 2. That should be most excellent.

    I think that's the general time frame. Probably in stores by October/November at the latest.

    i'm going to start asking the wifey to buy it now, maybe by november i'll break her down :)
     
  6. I didn't see anything in the article but are we going to have to buy a whole new console or can we just get an upgrade, for say 1/3 less. I know like Microsoft will do that.

    A Console will never do that.. they lose to much money already on console sales.

    I heard that they were going to unveil it at the gdc but never heard what came out of it thats sweet you were able to post these articles. I'm looking forward to it coming out the end of the year, I just hope they don't do what they did when they were releasing halo2 and keep promising dates only to backpeddle and it came out a year later.

    I haven't seen anything yet. I'm sure we'll know more during E3, in about 2 months. My guess is that they won't want to price themselves to highly, so that they take a nice lead on Sony for the next generation platforms. I guestimate that it will probably be between $299-$399. They might even offer various versions (with harddrives and without) so the range might even be $199-$399.

    Remember that the PS3 will be very pricey for the "real" thing..

    I bet they'll be close to $350 or $399

    Wireless controllers, which will be also supported in Windows Longhorn on the PC if you have an IR port. Sweet.
