Jonses

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...

Speaking of patches. . . XBox360 update is available. On an interesting note, I read the update list on the XBox website and it lists 125 "new features". My impression is 125 bug fixes.
 
They fixed the lousy WinDVD codec. Huzzah. If you look closely that list of 125 items is repeated a few times.

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.
