[Xbox 360] Xbox 360 Launches Tomorrow at 12:01AM - posted by Erich Becker at 7:49 am CDT

For fans lucky enough to secure a pre-order, Microsoft's jump-start on the next generation of console gaming will hit store shelves just after midnight tonight as the Xbox 360 launches with 18 launch games and a whole lot of hype to live up to.

The console is being sold in two different packages (a core bundle for $299 and another for $399 with all the good stuff included). While I won't use this space for a commentary on Microsoft's questionable pricing model, I will say that I wish them the best of luck launching first, but I don't think they'll be able to overtake Sony in the long run, but we shall see.

Sony's PlayStation3, still shrouded in mystery to a point, will be released sometime in the Spring of 2006 with Nintendo's Revolution (still a codename) hitting store shelves at an unknown time next year (many peg Fall 2006 to be the date).
