    About the XBOX Controller:
    You could buy a piece of hardware for 60-70 bucks for your XBOX360 so you could use a PS2 (or 3 i don't remember) and even a keyboard and mouse. You could purchase this at "Divineo".

    About the System Specs:
    I agree with the system specs. I haven't upgraded my windows to Vista because it's considered below recommended. For an XP computer it's pretty good especially for gaming.

    If Halo was on the PS3 Console........:
    And if Halo came out for PS3 it would be crappy lol. Recently Gamespot did a graphic comparison for the two consoles and XBOX360 came on top. I think the lighting in the PS3 sucks (mainly because it's way too bright).

    or because it can't render high range dynamic lighting and antialiasing so develoeprs are forced to use bloom.

    the PS3 basically just uses a modified GeForce 7800GTX which is allright

    but 2 years later and that tech is starting to show it's age.
    a Geforce 8800 in some cases can outperform FOUR 7900s

    x1600XT would croak.

    the xbox360s graphics subsystem has around 3 times the capacity.

    I know my x1600XT is weak, but I am 100% sure that I can play it at a decent resolution. Besides, I am still a student so whats the point of having an 8800GTX?

    And are you Sure that my card will get beaten three-fold? Can you do some research to prove that?

    Yes but the Xbox is pure gaming, no massive OS or background programs running not to mention virus scanners etc.

    I bought a new 6Ghz processor today anyway, should run on that :)

    Halo will NEVER be on the playstation. Sony will flop this year unless they get their act together, drop the console price by £100 and reduce their game prices by £10 since they suck anyway.

    Luckily Microsoft got in early, had a bumpy start but have straighened out the path and bought out some of the major titles such as GTA IV (which looks amazing). Sure i'm a Microsoft fanboy but I have every reason to be against a £300+ console and a novelty num-chuck stick.

    You hate a console because you're poor? That is a very silly reason to hate something which is not living.

    Kinda gay that you can fight that huge monster on the PC version but not the 360 version. I really wanted to fight that monster. :(

    just because you don't want to spend money doesn't make you poor.
    it might make someone an informed consumer. you can buy around 15xbox games...

    or you could buy a PS3 with nothing. to some the former is the better option

    Well, technically, you can buy 15 X360 titles, but of what quality? The difference between the PS3 and X360 price is really small now. Elite costs 470$ while the 60 GB SKU PS3 costs 499$. Premium X360 costs 400$. The difference is either 30-100$(i'm not counting the retard package). I don't really see someone buying quality games with 30-100$. But hey, who am i to judge their judgement?
