About the XBOX Controller: You could buy a piece of hardware for 60-70 bucks for your XBO60 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 XBO60 came on top. I think the lighting in the PS3 sucks (mainly because it's way too bright).
