About the xbox360 needing a dvd drive for backwards compatibility-its not true. The xbox360 games themselves will be dvd, while the ps3 games will be b-ray. And one more thing, xbox360 is going to use some kind of emulation for old xbox games, since the hardware is incompatible for regular xbox games.
EDIT: about that whole "half-dead router" thing. The HUB will be used for connectivity with other ps3's or other devices and nbeing able to utilize them as a network. So you see, its not so completly useless now is it? :icon_wink
EDIT2: Soviet- please backup what you say and explain or I won't know all the information and be a very sad :Cry:
