It is a good if not dry and technical article on what to expect from the graphics of the 360. I saw some images in EGM that made the 360's graphics look really poor.

If you are the graphic whore type.

Graphics are more important than the controller shape.And in this HD-day and HD-age, how can you NOT be inclined to worship at the Temple of Graphics?

I went through the article you linked. It was quite educational.

I own one. I'm... trying to get rid of it.

Did they make you pay taxes on it? I hear they were taking SSNs as they handed them out.

of course they owe taxes. the federal government can't possibly allow people to transfer belongings to one another; most of us probably owe taxes on gifts we've gotten throughout the years.

Well, it only took three-ish years. Pretty much everyone I know has a huge HD TV these days. Ah, I love how quickly new technology drops in price.

I know more people with HDTVs than I do people that play video games on those TVs.

Most people I know have HDTVs, but I keep a few CRTs around for older consoles. Unless I have an additional ten feet to scoot back, older stuff gets blown up way too much for me to enjoy on newer televisions.
