freakin sweet, a tournament that not an fps!! racing games have always been my favorite cause they get me so pumped with adrenaline.... ive broken so many ps2 controllers... even when i win... i would enter if they fix that boost cheat.. that would be nice.
so why again did MS decide not to make a HDD manditory for all thier 3 consoles? lets not even get into MS having 3 consoles and how it confuses the HELL out of consumers. but games and how they have grown will just continue to grow. high resolution texture require tons of space, so if your going to have a whole world in high resolution textures, your pretty much gonna need a blu-ray and a HDD to help out the ram remembering everything. ever herd of Virtual Memory?
lets take a look at the dreamcast, it dominated when it first came out, but it stuck with cd's, which couldnt hold as much as dvd's could. now look at it, 360 it doing really good cause if its tech, but eventually games will need more space, and the 360's dvd's lack that, and will eventually die, kinda JUST like the dreamcast.
actually, the xbox 360 only has 10mb more ram, the 360 has 512 ram, but it is shared with the GPU, that only has 10mb to its self. while the ps3 has them seperate, 256 for the system and 256 for the GPU. really no big difference there. though the 360's GPU is better with shading, when it all comes down to it, its all about the space.
