I went to an Xbox 360 breakfast talk this morning. It was pretty cool. I think I'm really starting to 'get' the whole digital hub strategy. I can't give any specifics, but I'm very impressed with the amount of integration that is being done between teams. Its funny, but I'm now thinking more in terms of complete 'end to end' experience rather than raw horsepower etc. (Not that I think the 360 lacks in that department). I think Sony should be worried.
After the talk there was a Q/A session. I got some of my questions answered (sorry I can't share though) and best of all I got to handle actual hardware. The console is very nice in person. I'm impressed. The controller surprised me a bit. It's lighter and smaller than I expected. A bit smaller than the controller S. It has a good feel though. I expected it to be heavier due to the battery.
