This really pisses me off. http://www.engadget.com/2006/10/19/sony-claims-xbox-360-requires-hd-dvd-etc-thus-costs-700/ Their next-gen "fact sheet" states that you need to buy an HD-DVD drive for the 360, and says that a Hard Drive is required too, which brings their "total cost" to $698. They also say that a hard drive or memory unit is required for the wi-fi adapter. ANOTHER straight up lie. They also state that online support for the wii is free for the first six months, despite it actually being completely free, forever. its the browser for the wii that will cost money if you don't download it before june. There's no way them to defend this behavior. its complete bullshit.
