9. They'll probably recompile and resell the old games
perhaps with higher resolution texture maps or something equally insignificant to gameplay.

I have an Xbox, and I hardly use it, but now I really want Gran Turismo 4. So if I were to buy a new system, I'd wait for the PS3 since Microsoft just adandoned me like a ton of bricks.

I'd still rather have the time to spend playing more games. Or screwing. Preferably screwing.
