    Well, that's pretty damn cool, methinks. Honestly, it'd be much better if future consoles allowed to always have a free option to play online, and not that crap that goes on with XBLA.

    Ya I agree, but its Microsoft. They can't pass up an opportunity to nickle and dime people. This shows there's no reason to force a fee to access the online function of games.

    That's one of the reasons why the PS3 was more expensive though. It had built-in Wi-Fi, rechargeable controllers, bigger HDDs, blu-ray capability, free online, etc etc. All this stuff costs money. I'm still shocked how cheap PS3s are now (Which is why I now own one, and I'm freakin' loving it!) Nintendo needs to step up their online. Brawl Online has already been given up on, as the Wireless Adapter in the Wii sucks and the online is horrendously laggy. And the game lags in the way of horrendous input lag.

    This is why I'm thinking about jumping to Sony's next console. Depending of course if they can pique my interest with it.

    @Tyler, O god, I remember when I had to plug that ugly device into the back of my 360 just to recieve Wifi, it was horrible. Sony had it right from the very beggining.

    You are right about why it was more expensive at first, it had all of the best technology from the start. Not to mention the chip necessary to play ps2 games cost about a $100 which added to the cost. With 360, it wasn't until about a year and a half ago with the new hardware update that they finally added built in wifi, about 4 years too late. Before then you had to buy a $100 wifi adapter, thats crazy expensive for that shit. When you add up all the extra costs to build the core 360 to what the ps3 had, it became way more expensive. And I still can't get over how microsoft didn't have rechargeable controllers and still don't... its such basic technology that would save a lot of wasted batteries
