Found a great technical comparison between Half-Life 2's Source engine and Doom 3's engine for all who are curious. And the winner is...
I'm not a console gamer, but if this article is any indication, the traditional x86 processor may well have a new, fierce competitor coming soon. A snippet from the article:

I'm looking forward to my friend returning from boot camp too. We all miss him. We'll have to have a welcome home thingie for him.
