Just looks to me like they're making a film called 'console wars'(most likely a docu-drama like "king of kong")...

'General Hirai! - We've repulsed Marshal Miyamoto's Army at Ico Gorge, but we can't hold for long!'

'We must hold the bridge at the gorge. It cost $599 to build!'

'General - your laptop - it uses Microsoft Windows!'

Why do I automatically think of one of those old cold war Hollywood movies where it keeps cutting to the different armys in submarines whilst a spy runs around the place.

"General, they have attacked with a free blockbuster game every month included with their membership service, what shall we do?"

"Retaliate with ultra-HD compatibility and promise of over 20 titles at launch. And where is my man in the field? I need them motion sensor plans, and I need them now!"

[Cuts to the spy on an enemy sub running about taking pictures over everything with a camera that would be the size of a lighter and karate chopping people on the back for an instant unconsciousness]

In reality it's going to be an 90 minute video is Jboo calling the Xbox s**t and crying about the gaming news being sony haters. He will then sacrifice himself for Ken to protect him from the giant enemy crab.

Oh damn it! You got us, Pride and Prejudice would look better on Blu Ray on the PS3 than DVD on the 360. You got us, I guess that's it then console war over. PS3 uses the booming Blu Ray that is certain to be the media of choice for the next ten years...*cough*.

As a 360 owner I don't have Blu Ray, I'm not allowed to purchase a standalone Blu Ray player because that would cost me at least £40 and I signed that contract with Microsoft that said I wouldn't.
