What can I say? I'm weak…

Follow-up to Damn you GTA IV! from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

So I gave in to temptation on Tuesday and bought Grand Theft Auto IV. It cost a little over £200 with all the extras I needed to play it... which was basically the Xbox 360.

The game is, of course, fantastic. It really is a brilliant game. I also have to say that I'm quite impressed with the console itself, too. Microsoft seem to have done a much better job with it than they do with Windows...

I still remember the first time I saw an original Xbox; it was in Currys. I'd just rounded a corner and literally did a double take; I glanced at the display stand, looked away, and then looked back in genuine surprise at how massive the damn thing was.

I knew the 360 was slightly smaller than the original, but it's still huge. I mean its transformer alone almost dwarfs my Wii:

It's huge! Also, for completeness, the size comparison between the two consoles themselves:

The controller is the only part of it that's a normal size:

I assume this is because the controller is designed to fit in your hands, whereas the 360 is designed to fit in your house...

So, overall, I'm quite impressed. My only complaint so far is that the 360 doesn't come with wireless; I'm having to wait a couple of days to acquire a cable to get it online.

I can't even juggle 3 normally…

Juggling in a cone… now I’ve seen everything; at least, I’m closer than I was – I still haven’t seen a man eat his own head…

Speed Cube

Very impressive, but I still wonder if these people don’t just remember the turns to jumble it…
