man i am dying to play this. i am the type that am not impressed w/ most games and end up buying a system just for one game. w/ xbox, i loved halo (adn then halo 2). with the gamecube, resident evil 4 was well worth it. (never really been a playstation guy). i have a feeling i've found the reason to buy the 360 now with GOW. i'm no microsoft loveer, but w/ halo 3 and the halo real time strategy game in the works, the system is going to be hot!
