If the new consoles come out with more high quality FPS and sim games I might be interested. Especially if they had full keyboard/mouse support. Not that crap third party stuff you can get for PS2 that doesn't work but an actual keyboard/mouse that is supported and works with all the games that would benefit from it. I hate using a glorified TV remote to play FPS games.

Ok, conflicting reports.... Nintendo says the New Nintendo is going back to Cartridges, then not, then it is going to go with new cd system thing so all the GC games are paperweights, then someone says they aren't gonna be paperweights, so who knows.

Can it be upgraded like a PC, no. However, since the XBOX is designed to play games and not spreadsheets, video editing, word processing, and image manipulation you can't really compare the specs to a PC, or the specs of any console for that matter. Consoles are made to play games and perfom other multimedia functions, they are not a PC, and are not designed to operate that way. It's like comparing a motorcycle and a car. Sure, they can both move people around, but each are designed to handle completely different aspects of transportation.

This system will be great however basically all it is microsoft acheving its goal of intergating windows into the living room. There are many rumors thats PS3 is suppose to be way faster than this system. The PS3 also has a new processor that desgined for performance. My point is Bill Gates will get his way as always.
This new XBOX can download games from the network instead of buying them in the store for very little money.
