I gave up PC gaming a long time ago, right around the 2nd generation or so of Nvidia cards. I lived through the whole Voodoo craze (motto: buy two!) but now they're just getting silly.
I'll stick to the predictable 5 year console wang-waving cycle. It's a heckuva lot easier on the wallet. The Wii is fresh, even MS and Sony have those motion tracking camera games. The PC? Still stuck in its tired waltz of FPS/RTS/MMO. *sigh*
Then there's the hard drive eating installs and patches...
The main points were:
- improved DVD playback
- check for the firmware hack
- boot to dashboard
- Live camera support
- better downloading
The rest is all UI tweaks. I got DOA and PGR in the mail yesterday. Used but in great condition, no scratches, booklets and cases were fine.
