Comment Where is John Carmack when you need him? (Score 2, Insightful) 115

I'm surprised that the article didn't really compare (in any detail) the online strategies of these two companies. The Xbox's more fully integrated Live service is a real draw to those who do any significant amount of their gaming online. The fact that Sony (as far as I can tell) mentioned just about nothing regarding any integrated online services for the PS3) is pretty amazing... Also, their HD comparison didn't note that games for the 360 are mandated to run @ 720P. The PS3 having 1080P (very rare on any HD TV most of us could afford) might be of strategic importance a few years down the road when those sets are more common, but right now it's an empty spec. I don't know, maybe it's just me but I never really have any faith in either the console manufacturers' hardware claims or these early light reviews. I'm just waiting for John Carmack to weigh in before I'll believe anything.
