According to a subscription email, the price will be $600 NZD. To be honest that's like, half of an original one when they came out (1.1k weren't they?).

Lol yeah, I remember when Xbox 360's were $650ish and now you can get a dumbed down model for $360ish (you can buy a HD though, so it's actually cheaper to get an Arcade model if you're playing games only and don't care about high def).

Don't tell Goatkiller ... he just spent more than that on a second hand PS3... although he did get some games and an extended warranty with his. :angry:

I dont get it, the xbox is a half gutted PC, the other consoles are just proprietary hardware.

Why buy one when we all own the best gaming systems of all, PC's

Never understood the popularity of games consoles :unsure:

Funny, when the PS first came out, sony planned a special version that fitted in a PC's drivebay and card slot and integrated with the graphics card like the old voodoo pass through accelerator cards, til they realised the proximity would be a bad thing for comparison as the system aged and PC's continued to evolve. they realised it would kill the long term sales of the software for the console.

Thats basically the truth about consoles, rumor has it most of the makers take a loss on the hardware (certainly true on the xbox) but reap the profits in comission, all software producers for consoles have to pay royalty fees in a binding licence to the company that produces the platform.

You think we could open up consoles and take their graphics cards? :V

Well my belief in this topic is that the price you pay for lets say a xbox360, the power ,ease of use and gameplay makes it well worth it, considering i hook it up to my 40inch HD LCD connect my optical cable to my massive grunty surround sound 6.1 setup with two subs, and lets say play a game like COD4 when i fire my gun the windows shake i hear my shells hitting the ground to the left and right..its massive .the missus dont think so thou!! also being able to just plug a usb with divx or mp3 files and play it straight away no hassel makes my 360 quick a neat cheap media games center. also i play alot of car games which suck on pc as pc car games are a no no!

i am now getting a PS3 so i can play blue ray and maybe start using that instead of the 360. money spent on 360 $440 money on pc $1600 my xbox is alot better then my pc.
