    Please post updates here as well. My work firewall blocks all major gaming sites.

    They are showing their Home/3D interface, but I can only read it. Good place for pics (not feeds)?

    The fact is that this press conference is pretty damn awesome. I'd be posting more in relation to it in the immediate term, but I'm bogged down with some other crap right now. The G4TV feed incidentally (what I'm watching it on) sucks. But, it's good enough that I can see there is a lot of good stuff following the 60GB unit launch.

    New Avatar/Dashboard looks awesome. What a great win for this Netflix to be official. Want a great value add if you already have netflix and a 360.

    Live Party is great, and glad that finally implemented something like this. The good news is you can stay chatting no matter what anyone is doing/playing.

    Does Netflix require a Vista PC or is it completely on the 360? Curious how this would work with marketplace rentals since they are offering the same thing.

    Wow ... I hate Final Fantasy, but that's an exclusive Sony didn't want to lose.

    Wow! I had all but decided to buy a PS3 this Xmas, now I dunno...is it really worth it if I can get FF13 on 360??

    Probably, but that certainly gives me pause.

    Slick move for MS, and I called this like 3 years ago, lol
