I respect Microsoft and I have an iPod. Wouldn't trade it for anything else in the world. However my 2nd youngest brother decided to get a Zen and its pretty cool too...although ridiculously large and heavy. As for the gaming industry I think Microsoft was smart to do it and I'm glad they have had great sucess with it. And if they want to create a motion sensor controller for their next system they have every right too. However everyone will know and remember that NINTENDO did it FIRST!
I'm kinda scared of what their next system will be since 360 is such a hit. I'll admit that if I could I would get a 360 as well. I wonder what its title will be.
