While I am tempted to buy an xbox 360, the RROD is obviously a huge reason to not do so. THe promised 3 year warranty doesn't offer me much. The ps3 slim has fewer games not including Halo 3.

I know they are using 65nm process when will cpu / graphics transition to 45nm as ps3 slim did (cpu) and will this reduced heat reduce RROD?


If you're an xbox 360 fan you'll know what rrod is.

I decided in the beginning of the year to get an XBOX360. I've read thoroughly through many articles, user testimonies, etc.
And then I've read this:

And it works!
Jasper really works.
I got my 60GB Pro Jasper about three weeks ago and it works like a charm.
AFAIK, there's not a single documented case of a Jasper which is properly cooled (and by that I mean placed in a good, ventilated space) ever having a RROD.
Microsoft has really improved with Jasper.

The next version of XBOX will include 45nm CPU&GPU which will be integrated into single chip, but I don't think that you need to wait for that version since Jasper works fine.

PS3 slim is waaay cheaper now, and if you can't decide, get both the PS3 and XBOX360. Both are excellent consoles with their own charms (Halo 3, Fable II for XBOX, Killzone 2 for PS3, etc.)

Oh please. You have to be blind to still be thinking this. The main advantage for the xbox 360 now is the much better online experience (for American FPS games at least). Price-wise both consoles are about the same, and their game libraries are nearly the same also. I challenge you to name more than a handful of third party games that aren't available on the PS3.

The 360 also has a great Netflix setup. And Halo!
