I have the original xbox which i enjoy. I don't have much experience with playstation but it isn't hard to learn. It seems like both systems have their quirks, not sure if they are even or one is worse than the other. I already have a hddvd player, so the ps3 option looks nice as far as bluray. Is it true that the 360 doesn't output 1080p? I read that the ps3 has sacd capability. I thought that went through analog cables or does it now go through hdmi. Which has better graphics for gaming? It doesn't really matter for me if the ps3 is backward compatible since i don't have any ps games. I like the 360 because of halo obviously and i heard they are on par or better than ps3 as far as gaming. I'm kind of like the ps3 cause of the bluray option. As you see i'm kinda of unsure right now. Any motives to one way or the other would be appreciated. Thanks.
