I'm not quite sure about everything they did because I really don't care that much, but I'm firly dertain that it is an entirely different chip. They just didn't put a replacement in its an upgraded one.

oh, that should explain it all. Most probably the new chip runs much cooler than the previous one. That's cool that they managed to fix the system, I love the graphics that the 360 produces.

I'm a PC gamer myself, FPS just don't compare no matter which console its played on. Those little joysticks just don't stack up against the sensitivity of a mouse.

I was thinking about getting a wii so my gf and I can play together, looks like she would have some fun with those types of games.

I actually thought the 360 was going to outrun both pc and ps3 by a lot. I am actually surprised of how many people use their computer for gaming. Some people love the mouse, but I actually hate it the thing is way to sensitive and I always tend to be to abrupt with my movements and I hate the keyboard .

Yea I'm not a huge fan of the computer gaming. But I will say that some of the older computer games were pretty fun. I have wasted plenty of hours playing command and conquer and old school warcraft.

I voted for 360 but the Wii is a close second. I cant really compare them because they are too totally different systems. If i want real life kind of games with incredible graphics its the 360 by far but the Wii has more just for fun kind of games. Although Mario Kart can get pretty intense lol

Eventually Ill probably have a ps3 but for now im holding off. They dont have enough exclusive titles yet to make me want to go out and buy one.
