Several years in the making, the brand new hardware from Gates 'N Company has been receiving plenty of consumer hype in the past few weeks and has been heralded by some as THE big system watch in the upcoming next-generation console wars.

We're here to tell you that they're wrong.

Everyone wants a 360. The best, and maybe the only reason not named Metal Gear Solid 4, to get a PS3 is the shortage of 360s.

Reason # 11 to wait for a PS3. The Xbox launched with defective Thompson drives. MS even forced people to pay for repairs. Now the 360 has overheating, disc scratching, and error code messages. Good luck trying to get a replacement from the store due to MS created shortages. MS will deny the problem is widespread and downplay it. MS is used to doing that. I'll wait for the PS3 or by that time maybe MS can release a console without defects. If you own a 360 you have the Windows ME of gaming consoles. Congratulations.
