    There are a whole stack of Minolta and third party Minolta mount lenses that will mount fine. I'm not sure about metering or focussing though.

    This has been disproven - due to differences in the PS3 setup (most people skip it) Xbox 360 games look better "out of the box", except for some early games which were actually better on the 360. Sure there are some bad examples, but not "every multi-system game" as you claim.

    Sorry to burst your bubble here, but they aren't fixed. The failures are less common but the failure rate is still somewhere around 20% the last I saw which is 5-10 times higher than Sony's Playstation 3.

    Uh, no... the failure rate on 360s is nowhere near 20% now, and wasn't ever that high, more like 10% at its peak.

    'Course, you could always get a Wii, which is smaller, cheaper, more intuitive, and in many situations more fun!

    That being said, I'm an XBox 360 man...

    (I saw a forum that had the option of a smiley face blazing away with a machine gun, I think that one would be more appropriate)

    You sound like a Microsoft rep. Downplay the situation all you want.

    I'm really liking the idea of these micro four thirds.....Though I hope they're not priced like laptops (the smaller they are, the more you pay for them)....
