7 controllers at a time and twice the processing power of 360...and yes, its backwards compatible. Before Bill's Time article hits the newstands, Sony is back on top again. This is getting to be good fun. The hi-def support is also excellent.

On the contrary, I think they'll bear losses initially to evangelize hi-def.

Thanks for the link Manoj.

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
