    i think PC graphics are much much better than consoles as we can increase the resolutions, apply AA and AF etc to enhance the grafix

    PC and consoles have their own advantages and disadvantages. For running a game in PC it requires good amount of ram, processor, HDD space and ofcourse a good GFX card if you want to run your game at the highest settings you require a cocker of a PC config. When it comes to consoles you always get slick graphics and you play it on your TV with excelent graphics. the best thing about the consoles is that even after say 3 years you will be able to play newer games with same quality. where as in a PC you need to upgrade your graphics card to be able to play in good resolution.One can even change the resolution in the console( Xbox 360 does). and the games run directly off the DVD/CD. well running a xbox DVD in xbox 360 does require a hdd. and also you get a game pad with the console.

    @ohio Xbox games can be played on xbox 360 only if you have a harddrive. in xbox 360 all games settings and points etc will be stored in a removable memory card.

    I think it is a valid question as long as no one is actually providing links to download cracked games.

    PC beats console hands down on grapics always but ironically its the same reason for the popularity of consoles since one doesnt need to upgrade it unlike the PC.

    ROLF!! [​IMG]. well that "little modified console" is not XBOX 360 . It hasent been cracked yet and all those who claim to have "cracked" are telling now that their crack is useless. The xbox 360 has got more security features in both hardware and software terms. If you want to buy a modded XBOX 360 then i guess you will have to wait for 3 more years :p.

    Thats too much for a speculation , what makes u so sure that xbox360 could not be hacked/modded till next 3 years , having too many hackers motivated to hack tha console , i dont think its much time we see modded console in the market .

    and the word in the industry is that ppl are interested to see which console X360 or PS3 will be hacked first wrt the date of launch . Everyone knows eventually the consoles will get hacked .

    Makers of the starforce protection said that Ubisoft was happy that starforce was not cracked till one month after the chaos th. release , the protection was going to be cracked/bypassed somehow but they were able to hold the pirates for 1 month, which improved sales . This is the truth that evveryone knows that as popular the software product is more are the chances of it getting hacked .
    Wonder why no one tried to hack Gizmondo?

    I was reffering to the indian market. and a middle class person cant afford a console immediately. Moded PS2 is available in india now. but can you tell me how long did it take to arive in india after it was available outside india(in market)?. or even the original PS2 was available?

    ofcourse pal , atmost 25-30 days for PS2 to reach Delhi Palika after it was modded , I know coz the game parlour guy in our area bought one for 22k(too much) as soon as he was informed from delhi contact , and being the first one to get the nexgen console he earned back the investment very quickly. I was costly then but the price gradually fell down as the sales increased.
    And in my recent trip to delhi, i visited palika , and few shopkeepers are already selling Xbox360 obviously not modded. One more interesting thing i'd like to share that the shopkeeper told me that the top selling handheld there is GBA , GBA(5k) is only 2000/- less then DS(7k) but ppl prefer GBA over DS and PSP(9-10k) only because GBA pirated/orignal software/Games are available for cheap , Mario cart for DS was costing 2.5K and ridge racer for PSP was for 3K , one game is 1/3 the price of the handheld . Not for the masses
