You have "saw" it?  I think you mean you have "seen" it. :P

I'm pretty sure i used the correct grammar. Perhaps it's different over here on the other side of the pond. I'll look it up <_<

Google turns up 73 million more hits for "I have seen" than for "I have saw."



You need to fix the edit post thing too.

It's not broken. You're actually not authorised. Level 21: Long time user is needed to use it.



Which i'm sure JonLeung will promote to you as soon as his stupid host would update the cPanel licence.

If you break down the phrase:



"I've saw"



to the non-contraction, you are actually saying:



"I have saw"



You can say:



"I saw that yesterday."



or



"I have seen that before."



Hope that makes since.









So, Revned, don't you wish I could edit the post so it reads "sense"? lol

Makes since to me ;). Did you actually edit that, or just add it intentionally in the first posting? Anyway, I could probably come up with some technical terms for the tenses involved, but I think my Google search was the most effective explanation.

"Makes since to me"?

Looks like you're getting a little lax Revned. =P

And I just find it funny that a system size comparison turned into a grammar lesson. I love how topics evolve into other random ones. Heh.

Now there are rumours of an external harddrive for the revolution. We'll have to have a new chart that takes that into consideration if one is announced at E3.

I thought the external harddrive was officially announced? And it won't change the size, it'll be a plugin type thing i expect. I'd love to be able to use the 200GB external harddrive i already have, fill it up with old nintendo games and blast them on my Rev.

Almost nothing has been officially announced for the Rev. It has been said that the two USB ports on the back could be used for HDD storage. There's speculation on whether Nintendo will release their own drive or support existing hardware. In either case, part of the size difference is due to the 360 and PS3 having HDD built in. I think its only fair to show the Rev with a HDD if that is a possible configuration.



 :P

The other two are roughly over four times larger in volume, though.  I'd still think there's some amount of design efficiency of Nintendo's part.



Maybe it's from the lower specs, too...no need/less need for fans or the parts could all be closer together with less risk of overheating.

I don't like it when people abbreviate Revolution as Rev. Makes me think they're talking about me ;)

Um, please don't share any details. Though I'm interested in knowing how often Rev's controllers need to be charged. ;)

Rev's main unit is smaller than the others'.  But it's probably easier to handle that way.  >_>

<insert beavis & butthead laugh here>



you said 'unit'.



I am cornholio. I need TP for my bunghole.





Amazing how Rev can be both black and white, providing for everyone's tastes. Though, you know, I've heard that once you play black you can't go back.

The Rev is better than its predecessor because it now accepts full sized di...scs.



Okay, that's enough.

I just want to see what design Sony will come up with for the new controller for the PS3. They finally ditched the banana-boomerang design, but if they're going to stick with their projected November release on the system, their going to have to bust their asses to come up with something new.

That wasn't a comment about our present company, just an observation in general. Its like being in school hanging out with 'the group' and we start a gigglin' fit talking all sexual innuendo, and everyone walking by like we're laughing like Crissy Snow of Three's Company.



Anyway, if you have a comment you'd like to throw in about how Rev can be played with in the dark or something, go for it. But then thats it. We don't want to give the gaming machine a complex or anything!!
