I think the xbox 360 is gonna be better (even thou its the uglyest color for a system... never make a white system) but im still gonna buy both systems. and the nintendo too. i think the ps3 controller is really ugly too. it looks uncomfortable. P.S. i think im gonna spray paint the ugly 360 black or get a black or fire skin for it. getting black ps3 and black nintendo(ooooooooooo i want to a computer show yesterday and got a nintendo game cd thingy that has over 690 nes/snes games! so happy!)

The console that has a hard drive will be better in my eyes. If I don't have to deal with memory cards, then I'm a happy man. Stupid Sony and their memory cards... and the boomerang... what is that?

Turns out they were having some trouble with the design of the dual shock controller. Apparently it was extremly close to the design someone else had before they created the dual shock. So at the time of the fabrication for the system they had to make a new controller. Hopefully we will see the original dual shock design back. It's just so... perfect.

are you sure it wasn't more to do with the dual shock technology, ie force feedback devices in controllers? which Microsoft bought the license for? and now Sony has to pay Microsoft royalties every time they sell a PS2 or PS2 controller in the United States?

I don't believe it was microsoft that had the problem with them. And the idea of one person owning the "force feedback" feature is rediculous. It's been around for a long time, on a lot of diffrent systems. I could be mistaken but the first rumble feature I recall was on the N64? You could buy a cartridge for the back of your contoller. So if that were the case, Microsoft and Sony would both be paying Nintendo.

i think the fact that you had to buy the rumble pak made the force feedback technology not inherent to the controller.

Microsoft has settled a patent-infringement suit and received the rights to use Immersion's technology for providing tactile responses in devices such as game controllers. Under the deal, Microsoft will pay Immersion $26 million for licensing rights and for a stake in the company, Immersion said Tuesday. Immersion also can borrow as much as $9 million more through a convertible debenture arrangement with Microsoft, the company said.

Japan Today reports that in addition to a hefty, $90.7-million fine for damages, Sony Computer Entertainment may be forbidden from manufacturing, using, selling or importing into the United States any of their products that include computer controlled vibrating motors because those products infringe on patents held by Immersion Corp.

So basically, Immersion said to Microsoft 'dudes, you are using our cool rumbling technology' and Microsoft whent 'you're right, we're sorry, we'll buy a large part of your company and give you some sweet deals if we can continue to use it.' Immersion said to Sony 'dudes, you are using our cool rumbling technology' and Sony went 'hahah, you are teh suck and we will crush you!' and Sony lost.
