This means that you can buy any game, from any region and play it in any machine, from any region. This is the way things should be -- Microsoft and Nintendo please take note!

That's developers choice as to whether they want to do that or not and as such MS shouldn't be blamed. There are also very few 360 games that are region locked (at least I have yet to find any that I want that are).

Other than that it does seem like a nice console and would sit nicely next to my 360.
I'm Surprised you didn't say anything about MotorStorm actually, it's supposed to be one of the best racing games money can buy at the moment.

With the PS3 you can order anything you like from anywhere and it will work. With the X360 it's down to the developer and it's pot luck for you.
So therefore Microsoft is to blame, since it could have insisted that all games are unlocked like Sony did...

Seriously, it's soo much fun!) but after getting my new TV my regular DVDs look much better as well (due to upscaling) and blu-ray looks very nice as well.
I hope some of the nay-sayers will read this and give it a try, because if you sit and just continue to think the PS3 sucks then you will be missing out out oa a great piece of gaming and home entertainment hardware :)
