As far as I know, the spec of these consoles is identical. Both the new nintendo and new xbox: Use the same 3x PowerPC (Apple mac G5) processors made by IBM Use the same sound card Have wireless controller ability Use the same internal RAM memory chips Are about the same size...etc etc ...which leads me to believe that in actual fact there is one skeleton console which is shipped off to MS to get an XBOX 360 case/look and the other set is shipped off to get Ninty Revolution case/looks. Any truth to this? If so it would be great....because developers could create one game for both and just add a bit of code at the beginning to allow it to play on one console or the other (a bit like RCE encoding). I mean....stranger things have happened and this would ensure both could compete with Sony with a better chance of gaining market share. As both companies have announced major internal components going to the same companies, it wouldn't make sense if they were completely different would it? PS I probably won't get any of them as I just bought myself a Scalextric which p***** all over consoles in terms of enjoyment factor imho vroom vroom!
