For those who like the consol's then it is interesting times for them. I only would want the xbox 360 as a media centre extender.
It's of interest to me from a techy/historical point of view, just to see how they develop, what features they add, what features they take away from each new generation and version, and how the punters react to it all. I'd probably never get one myself though. It'll be fascinating to hear what the new XBOX is really like from Damien, when he gets one.
