In other tech news I've been playing Mass Effect on the 360.
It's a flawed gem. There are serious technical and gameplay problems with it, but this is made up for by the efforts they have made in the other areas. The universe, characters and plot are great. I've been most impressed at just how far they have raised the bar on dialogue. Every conversation you have (and there are a lot) is fully voiced with decent acting. More crucially every one is fully animated, by which I mean not only are they properly lip synced, but the characters move around and gesture, and the camera changes angle. This gives a feeling much closer to a film than I've before seem in a game.
