That may seem like really good specs to some people. they don't phase me. These new consoles should be better and more powerful, I can easily show up these consoles with gaming on my pc, and that is sad, especial when a pc isn't specifically meant for gaming, and these consoles are. Oh well, I don't have anything against them, I probably will get all three systems anyways, even with my pc.By the way, these specs are really old in this area of the forums. I posted specs for all three consoles a good while ago in one topic. These specs are the same as the ones I posted.

Wow! That sounds awesome! There won't be any need in computer to play very qualified games ;) but How much will it be cost?? (real prices?)Because when I looked at price on PS2 it was only 75% of it's real cost...But there still more questions like when it will appear in Russia ? :) And how much will cost discs for it?

I think the PS3 is gunna be the best system. Then Xbox 360 then the Revolution. But I think Ill buy all three machines no matter what. But I will buy PS3 first easily my favorite system, then Revolution, then Xbox 360. I wrote a pst a while back talking about the games for each system and the specs of them, Ill put a link to it later.
