"Indeed. Image quality between the XBox 360 and PS3 varies depending on the game, but there have been some titles that looked markedly better on the Sony system due to the inherent limitations of the XBox 360's optical storage capacity"
The reverse is very often true as well. Looking at game reviews across consoles, very often games run better on the 360. There are very few excepetions to this. One is Final Fantasy 13, which is by far better on the PS3. I think that is because FFXIII was originally supposed to be a PS3 only title and got a poor and rushed translation to the Xbox 360.
Most games that were designed with both systems in mind, tend to run smoother and better on the Xbox 360.
I am not a fanboy either, I have both systems, and I actually use my PS3 far more often, just stating the facts.
Back on topic tho... My guess is that this new firmware is bricking the old 360s with the drives in them that were able to play bootleg copies of games. If you got caught hacking them, they would kill you live acount and I think they would brick the drive if I remember correctly... Anyway... I think that's the problem.

Hmm...wonder if I'll be "lucky" enough to have an affected model....guess I'll have to find out!
It's good that they've offered a replacement for the bricked 360's. (And that it's free too)
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Good to know , but I'm more of a PS3 fan..plus I use it for my Blue Ray Movies, it's flawless.
