The revolution will have an add on for a dvd player, wireless internet, native DVI.. They couldnt with the Gamecube because they didnt use DVD's. And none of that explains it. Wanna know what it is? It's pure lazyness. They want to get out and sell them so they say screw the final testing. Nintendo actually makes quality stuff that doesnt have a problem of getting a disk read error, or in Xbox 360's case artifacts and overheating (some liquid cooling).. Its just simple lazyness because they cant just make a cool, efficent system with quality parts in them.. I'd rather have "inferior" system then one that screws up within 24 hours of purchase..

I agree w/ you as far as rigorous testing but you have to know that their here to make money and have deadlines. More time testing equals more money spent for the company and trying to beat each other for the release. As far as the revolution, We're just gonna have to wait and see since this is the first time nintendo is offering all the extra stuff and the system is going to be rushed since it's trying to beat the PS3 release.

Slade, PS3 will be $399 and ALL the consoles have parental controll! PS2 has it, Xbox has it, Xbox360 definitely has it, and I'll be damned if Revolution and PS3 don't have it. (I didn't mention Gamecube having it since I do not own one but knowing Nintendo im sure it does have it too.)

Cool! I totally forgot As far as pricing goes you might be right but "Sony would indeed be shipping the initial deliveries of their Playstation 3 console at massive subsidized rates to get the consumers to their gaming console." http://games.techwhack.com/268/22112...playstation-3/
