But no, seriously, because Microsoft figured out how to outperform machines w/ over a gig of G-Ram alone, let alone the 2-4g of CPU Ram. Seriously, that statement was flawed.

This issue about difficulty of developing on PS consoles has always arisen, and it's always worked itself out. The folks at Valve showed their true colors, and as such, noone who owns a PS3 could care less about Orange Box. Valve complains and cries, and yet there are a plethora of developers (Square-Enix, Konami, Naughty Dog, Capcom, Free Radical Design, Ninja Theory, Polyphony Digital) putting out top notch material for the PS3. Quite a few of those are putting out exclusives too, which is at direct odds really, with your claim of 360 superiority. If it was so superior, why risk so much money on exclusivity to the competition? We're talking 50+ million dollar production costs, on a chance? I don't think so.

An Ex-Sony employee's word on anything regarding Sony's hardware, and now works for Bioware, is pretty much meaningless to me. Again, it's a tainted source. There was a programmer for whatever company puts out Guitar Hero or Rock Band, or one of those idiotic games, who complained about programming for the PS3. The title of that article read 'Ex-Programmer' for such and such. Notice Ex.

That's pretty cool that your wife codes for all three though.

How much RAM in a machine has nothing to do with the power of the GPU. The 360 GPU is currently the most advanced GPU on the planet. ATI has a card coming out based on the design and when it hits, the whole "video card," field is going to be changed. It is so efficient it would allow a much less expensive PC play Crysis for instance.

Oh and yes it does outperform many 512MB and 1GB ram video cards. Efficiency is a pretty big deal.

Crysis is being ported to the 360. That says a little something right there.

Comparing the exclusive titles of the two systems isn't really that smart. For one both sides get paid a lot of money for exclusives. There are just so many factors. The only exclusive I really think any 360 owner actually cares about is Metal Gear Solid 4. The rest we all kind of shrug our shoulders and think of the plethora of exclusive kickass product we got.
