Watch Xbox run a sale on 360's the same week PS3's come out - that's what I'll be watching for, since I've been wanting to buy one anyway.

Apparently Bill Gates has said they plan on releasing Halo 3 at the same time as PS3 just to smite them.

Think I'll be able to hook my iPod up to the PS3?  What about my cell phone?  What about if I want to play Super Macho Man with my Power Glove?

What about if you stop asking stupid questions?

Smite?  Or spite?

Both are feasible, I suppose, but using the words "smite" and "Bill Gates" anywhere near each other is more than a little scary.  Dude has enough power as it is. 

And there isn't any way that Halo 3 is gonna be ready by November.

Smite. I just had a wee-little brain fart there. Finals will do that I suppose.

Actually, I've heard rumors that Microsoft is sitting on quite a number of units of the 360, waiting for PS3 to drop so they can ship them all... this way, when you go to the store to buy a new PS3 and they don't have any, they can offer the 360 instead. And since they are still quite hard to find - at least in my neck of the woods - this scheme will probably work.

I'm just waiting things out I think...  They all are looking/sounding great, it's become a headache just deciding what I want.  Even the Nintendo's sounded promising to me in ways.

Again, I say. . .  smite?  You sure?

'Cause to me, smiting is more like, **** that God does.  "I'm gonna lay your soul to waste, sinner!" and all that crap.  I just don't know that I like the idea of Bill Gates having that kind of power.

Whereas spite is less a physical action, and more of a mental or psychological thing, except in terms of the phrase "cut off your nose to spite your face," which is more just an expression than anything, but there must be some true story behind it, or it wouldn't have become an expression in the first place.

What were we talking about?

Yeah, until they changed the name of it...  ::)

I think it's ridiculous. The Nintendo Revolution was a great name for a game system and then they went and changed it.

It should have been spite if you want to use the expression.

As for the notion of some kind of a sale on the 360 with Halo 3 on the shelves... that's where my oodles of money would be going that weekend.

I'm broke, so I think I'll just pick up a PS2 Greatest Hit and pretend I'm playing the PS3.

$500 is not bad considering you get a Blu-Ray player.  I just saw a Toshiba HD-DVD player at Best Buy for $499.

The 360 is what, $400 ($500 loaded)?
