Sales info puts units sold on Heavy Rain at about 220k, which is pretty staggering considering how odd the game is.

that's really cool, but i'm going to go ahead and baselessly speculate that it's also going to be one of the most "traded in after playing for an hour" games of all time.  i hope i'm wrong and a lot of people enjoy this concept as much as i do.

Between this and God of War III, I've been convinced now which console to go buy.  I will now be setting my sights on a PS3, rather than a 360.

I'm trying to figure out what lead me to buying an Xbox360. I can't think of a single game I've played that is Xbox exclusive, that along with monthly online fees, and lack of bluray makes the PS3 worth the extra cash.

If I get an XBox it'll mostly be for XBox Live Arcade, rather than big AAA titles.

It really does. Not to mention that the PS3 upscales DVDs to HD better than any other player on the planet.

If you have a good HDTV. Otherwise blu-ray's kind of pointless.

Without an HDTV, the games(xb360 or ps3) are also kind of pointless.

And anyway, I think KvP was making a distinction between good HDTVs and bad ones, not HD and normal televisions.

Yeah, my gaming enjoyment isn't even remotely dependent on HD.

Sometimes in-game text on my standard-def TV is far too tiny to be considered comfortable, e.g. Dead Rising. Although, to be honest, I hated Dead Rising anyway, so no big deal.
