This has got to be one of the biggest loads of bull I've ever seen posted.
1) Gamers have been waiting for the PS3 for over a year now and I don't think another 1-3 months will kill them.
2) Better hardware doesnt = Better gaming, but thats not to say it cant either. All of those other systems were faulted in atleast another major way.
3) This is the one thing I agree with you on. A unified online experience is the way to go, this will keep cheating to a minimal and some games online servers wont blow while others are just great.
4) All I have to say about GOW is Resistance. It's an insanely fun game.
