    Seeing as how the orignal Xbox was 8.8 lbs I'd say this is a step up. :)

    I don't think 1 meg of L2 will be sufficient for three cores.

    i don't know what all that stuff means, and frankly, i don't care. as long as the games look good and are fun/innovative.

    Not at all. Gaming doesn't require large amounts of data recall, and doesn't store much in the cache anyway. My 3500+ has a 512 L2 and it smokes on games. As long as the instuction sets and threading are done right, it will be more than effiecient.

    Half a meg of L2 might be good for a single processor, but when you've got the equivelant of three processors fighting for their piece of the pie, 1MB gets to be a bit thin. Even though games don't need gobs of cache, they still need it.

    I felt the hit going from a pair of processors with 512K L2 each to a pair with only 128K each. Granted the only game I play is Quake 3 but for everything else I feel the constraints.

    I think that will be the test. Game designers creating games that will actually be able to utilize all the points in both the Xbox and PS3. I want fully destrucatble enviroments damn it. Here is a list of games that are slatted for the 360 as of right now.

    http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/8810/Xbox-Su...-360-Game-List/

    Quake 4 is going to be on the 360 and another game that supprised the hell out of me being on there is, Resident Evil 5 - Biohazard. I plan on getting a 360 maybe not any time soon but I will.

    Call me insane, but one of the few fully destructable environments is found in that Katamari Damacy game. Everything can be picked up or moved... from thumbtacks on a table to the island that the table and the house was on.

    Strange but true. Anyway, I am waiting for fully destructable FPS environments as well.

    Compared to what can come out of Japan, KD is an excellent game.

    Take for example a rare title called "Cho Aniki". Just google it...

    "The man train. Male locomotives linked together in an endless chain, only separated by carts of fruit. You know what? I'm not going to comment on that."

    I'll stick with roll & pick shit up.

    Katamari Damacy can be found at your local retail store or game store.

    KD2 is due to come out later this year IIRC.
