I've been out of the market since the Dreamcast debaucle. What's considered the best these days?

Or, is there something new that I should wait for?

You should maybe wait for the Xbox 360.

Will it play all the old Xbox games?

Not all, but at least 90%. they will do their best to emulate most of the xbox games on the new hardware of the xbox360.

PS3 will be better

PS3 will be a little better but :

1- PS3 will be available months later
2- PS3 will be more expansive
3- PS3 will be more complicated for the developpers, so it will take a lot of times before games use the full power of the PS3
4- most of the games are multi-platform, so they are developped for one console, and then adapted to the others. So they usually develop for the easiest and less powerfull console, and then port the game with the same level of quality to others consoles.

2 is wrong, it will be $399 just like Xbox. 3 is speculation. 4 is correct except for the second part, it varies company to company how they decide to port games. Bottom Line: If you desperately need a great online experience and great first person shooters, get 360. If you want a good, not great online setup, you want the most powerful machine, you want a machine that will also play Blu-Ray movies, and you want to play the graphically superior version of EA Sports Games, along with any other multiplatform game, get PS3.

2- I read that the less expansive pack of xbox360 will be at 299$. Maybe i am wrong.
3- No, the developpers already have said that it's a lot more difficult to develop for the PS3 than for the Xbox 360.
4- i know it varies, i said "usually".

It will take times to use full potential of Xbox 360, and more time for PS3.
i agree for the blu ray part.
i am really not sure for the quality of multiplatform games. The only EA games i know is madden.
all madden except 06 were better on PS2, but madden 06 is better on xbox.
and for next gen console, there is only videos of xbox 306 madden, so wait and see.

so technically, i think it's better to choose xbox 360, but you have to choose a console also fot the type of games, the type of disc, the live, etc...

Id just go for an Xbox. The graphics are great. The price is gonna drop to 100 after the 360 is released.

I would wait for a 360 as well. The online capabilities are awesome. Halo is awesome. PS3 might not even come out until late next year.

Wait for the PS3 which will destroy the 360.
