Sometimes it's not clear what's missing from a product until the competition arrives on the scene and shows us that things can be done a little better.
Such is the case with the Wii and PlayStation 3 disk-loading mechanisms. Forget clunky trays, top-loading hatches, or other icky mechanisms: the PS3 and Wii sport svelt slots that suck disks in silently and safely. It just feels nice and more refined. We wish the Xbox 360 could do that neat trick too.
Since it can't, well, we tally another annoyance for the Xbox 360. This never bothered us before, but now the bar has been raised.
