    sony is going crazy talking shyt about wii and xbox...

    [MEDIA]http://www.blogsmithmedia.com/www.engadget.com/media/2006/10/sony_chart1.jpg[/MEDIA]

    Ok, here's a new one: with Sony's announcements today they've issued a titled "Next-generation Console Comparison Fact Sheet," (downloadable here [DOC]) so let's see some facts. First up, were you aware that to use your Xbox 360 Core system you're required to buy the 20GB drive add-on, an HD DVD drive, a wireless controller, and an Xbox Live sub? We weren't either. But hey, it says right there, "requires users to buy" and this is, in fact, a "fact sheet." Of course, none of that's actually true, and what's more, were one to use the Xbox 360 Premium console pack in that chart instead of the Core pack, the total would be $399 for a console with that very same hard drive, wireless controller, and Xbox Live Silver subscription (which provides access to everything but multiplayer) -- remember, kids, an HD DVD drive is not required to do anything but watch high def movies -- it has nothing to do with high def gaming. We hear Microsoft ain't too happy about this chart either and is preparing certain legal action, namely because it could be misleading to otherwise unwitting retail employees selling customers game consoles this holiday season. Go figure.

    P.S. -In the interest of fairness, it's also worth pointing out the Wii browser is what will cost you after the first 6 months -- not their online service. What's more, if you download the browser before June of 2007, it's straight up free. Otherwise, Nintendo hasn't yet announced details of the cost of their online service so far as we know. Another nice one, Sony.

    P.P.S. -We just confirmed with Microsoft that another Sony claim -- that you need a memory unit or a hard drive to use the WiFi adapter -- is also false. You can grab a Core pack with no memory card and plug in a WiFi adapter and get on your home network. Sheez Sony, did we mention we moonlight as fact checkers?

    Could be wrong, since it also says the Wii Online is free for the first 6 months.

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.

    >.> Sony... Must... Die. D:< Even though I hate Microsoft in the gaming category, they don't deserve a flase bad rep. *Nod nod* I'll be pissed if they DON'T take legal actions. Sony's making an ass of themselves and need a good kick in the ass to knock some sense into them.

    LOL, i love how with PS3 they say 802.11b (WiFi)
    And with Wii they just say 802.11 as if it didn't have WiFi (so people not really in the know would be more inclined to get PS3.

    Besides the spec sheet is like asking if someone wants Organic free range Chicken or normal chicken - advertising that the non-free range one is bigger (injected with water) and will last longer (Injected with preservatives).

    Well... Not really but I can't think of a better example at the mo'

    Me thinks Sony is starting to panic. Bottom line is the people that want a PS3 won't be gauranteed to get one on their launch day. Then those people will go get either a 360 or a Wii or both since they have all that money to get the PS3. Wii360 FTW!

    According to this "Fact sheet" Sony's "Free Online Access" costs $0... Wow, thanks for letting us know Sony, I thought we were going to be charged for your FREE ONLINE ACCESS.

    Just a thought.
