One fast PC if you ask me...
All of those specs makes it sound more like another computer than a console.

They are in fact fun and you can play a lot of games while moving around your whole body rather than the tip of your fingers and your eyes which is better. What I heard is that they want your money in case you bought a used game, so the owner payed the full price and everyone will have to pay a price to reactivate the game. If this is the case they can go to hell. It seems to me that microsoft wants me to jump into another boat. /ent rant

I've heard that also...
Microsoft has already banned selling their games. I go to a bookstore called Bookman's and they won't take any Microsoft products.

So basically, you buy it, you own it for life!

Doesn't that just encourage people to pirate their software?

Don't you mean you own it for life unless you loose or badly scratch the disk, then you will have to buy it again?

Boy...do I ever miss MS and their products...A friend to all mankind is what they are! LOL

If you are willing to own a second copy for the rest of your life.
Unfortunately Microsoft has a few really good games that I'm tempted to buy...

Guess I'll never be selling Fable or Fable 3?
