Finally! Something the Officers of Opinion can have pride in taking votes for has come to pass. Perhaps some of you are not aware of the most recent GameTrailers debacle, but it goes something like this: a new racing game called GRID got its chance at a video comparison on their site and from the video posted, the 360 was implied to have more dynamic and compelling footage.

My opinion is different than those mentioned above. pollcode.com free polls (http://pollcode.com/) First off, thanks to everyone who alerted us to this. The comparison video and all related comments have since been removed from their site, which is a telling sign they've recognized something had gone wrong. Whether it was their evil ploy foiled or an error in creating, posting, or citing the console for the video, we'll probably never know.

Last week's poll results (http://www.ps3fanboy.com/2008/05/04/ps3-poll-police-did-you-succumb-to-rockstars-gta-iv-fix/) are also posted, so give them a look as well, if you're interested.Continue reading PS3 Poll Police: Voice your opinion on the GameTrailers debacle (http://www.ps3fanboy.com/2008/05/11/ps3-poll-police-voice-your-opinion-on-the-gametrailers-debacle/)
