It's been made official at the Tokyo Game Show.... Xbox 360 hits North American Shelves on Tuesday November 22, 2005.

The other launch dates are as follows..... Friday, December 2 in Europe, and Saturday, December 10 in Japan.

This marks the 1st time that a console will launch in the same time frame for 3 major regions.

Make sure you bring a baseball bat amd some aspirin, you'll need both to get through the crowds to get 'em.

I'll be camping out at my local Target store, as I did for the Gamecube and the Dreamcast. SEE YOU ALL ON XBOX LIVE! v. 2!!!

$600...yikes....that's soooo much money. Of course that is for the bundle pack so you get a bunch more but still...Anyone know what the PS3 is going to run? I'm guessing around the same amount.

PS3 will easily run at least $499.99..... and the reasons are simple..... Blu-Ray HD DVD player (this thing isn't avaliable in a home player yet, and when THAT is released, it will be a high priced item) and the Video Card by nVidia in the PS3 will be expensive to manufacture by itself... easily north of $500....... Sony will be biting a huge bullet on the production of this one!

The PS3 will be more than the Xbox 360 and come without a harddrive, a seperate harddrive will be 80 gigs. Just the blu ray drive and another hardware piece is close to $200.00 and that is not including the Nvidia and the Cell chip that Sony spent 1 billion on.
