PostSubject: Should I get an Xbox ???   Thu Jul 15, 2010 7:35 pm

Hello reader,

I don't own a console of this generation. I'm thinking of buying an Xbox 360, because my pc doesn't run MW2 that well (its really laggy sometimes!). I will be paying half of the price, my parents the rest (if I keep my grades up next year, else I have to pay the other half myself).

Can you give me some reasons to buy one? I'm not sure if I should get the Xbox or PS3. Some of my friends have a xbox, some a ps3. I would appreciate it if you can tell me what the one console does better than the other, and what games are on the platforms

Thansk in advantage!

PS. Excuse my English I'm Dutch, but I'm trying my best!

You should buy it for the future. The Xbox 3 will come out in a year, the PS3 will hold out at least 3 years. And you will get Bluray and 3D, which is the future. At this moment, I would buy a PS3. But halo is a pretty cool guy, and he isnt afraid of killing aliens.

Seeing as your pc can't run MW2 that well then I'm guessing you can't run other modern games on it?

Well you could always upgrade your pc if you have the time or money. If not, I'd recommend 360 as it has a lot of pc ports and it's ideal if you don't want to upgrade your pc. And it has most games overall between ps3 and 360 (pc has more though lol).

Plus you get the best of "both worlds". You get ps3/360 games (eg: Red Dead Redemption), you get 360 exclusives (eg: Gears 2), you get pc/360 games (eg: Mass Effect 2) and general all system multiplats (Modern Warfare 2).

If you don't have a blu-ray player though and you're not willing to pay for online, you may as well go for ps3 as it's also a great system.

Good luck with your decision.

Why is my first account banned?
Thank you for your help demondragondude!
I'm still not sure if I will get myself an Xbox instead of a PS3. Are the alike if you look at the graphics and things like that? (online and such?)
And what about the games. I know a lot of games are on all the platforms (except for Wii lol!)

Don't you love that expression, that picture is literally worth 5000 words, maybe even more, because instead of writing a whole paragraph to answer something, you can sometimes just put that picture on and they understand what you want to say

Its all a matter of opinion.

Online: PS3's is free, 360's is better but there is a fee.

Controller: Do you perfer the classic feel of the PS3's Controller or the comfort fit of the 360's controller.

Multimedia: PS3 has BluRay movies, an internet browser, 3D support, etc. The 360 has the Zune Marketplace, Windows Messenger, etc.

Games: PS3 has uncharted, God of war, infamous, heavy rain, etc. 360 has halo, gears, fable etc.

You can't go wrong with either console(I'd honestly recommentd buying both lol), but determine what your looking for in your console and what each one provides.

Yes, cause Microsoft redesign the XBOX 360 only to have a new console come out about 12 months later. Great logic.

Articles say that the 360 will have a long lifespan (at the time of the article, it said it probably wasn't at it's midpoint yet).

Get both a 360 and PS3, can't afford both, then get a 360.

If money is a concern the 360 has a better backlog of titles than the PS3 whilst at the same time the 360 has a better number of A, AA and AAA titles available (many of them cheap too).

3rd party developers tend to release the better version of their games on the 360 and it has been the case since 2006 (when the PS3 released) and is still ongoing.

Where else can you get all of these titles; Halo Reach, Fable 3, Gears of War 3, Codename Kingdoms, COD Black OP's on any other platform but on the 360?

Sure Live gold costs $50 (more like $30 if you look online) a year but there's no other console which gives you cross game chat, party system, in game music (for all 360 games) and a robust online infrastructure anywhere near like XBOX Live, not on the PS3 or Wii.

If you like Blu-ray and have not purchased a $99 player already then look for alternative like .mkv movies that will play via your PC already which can be streamed from the PC to your 360 (in 1080p). The 360 has Zune Marketplace, Netflix, integrated; Last .Fm, Facebook and Twitter.

For anything you need on the PS3 outside of gaming the 360 has a fix, however i did advise the PS3 and 360 however if you're a core gamer the 360 has almost all you could need. Buy a PS3 down the road if you like when they're cheaper.

P.S: The 360 can do 3D also Smile Crysis 2 as a matter of fact was running in 3D at E3 (EA presentation) this year using the XBOX 360 console (stereoscopic 3D baby)!

CoD: Black Ops is also on the PS3, PC, and Wii. Unless of course your talking about the map packs.

Was where can you get an experience with all those games on the one platform?

If you have a PC capable of playing new games well, get PS3.
If not, get a 360.

http://gear.ign.com/articles/106/1060765p1.html

It does issue statements like "many, many, years from now" and "Microsoft won't be rushing to implement 3D technologies on a mainstream level anytime soon" that may seem to indicate the 360's longevity but it also contains quotes like "From the technical standpoint, we are fully 3D capable" and "If developers want to make more 3D games, they can." which seem to indicate that they aren't planning on implementing it on the 360. Sounds like if they get enough support for 3D they would develop it for the next system to me.

My opinion on your opinion on their opinion=FACT! Wink

What it means is the 360 is fully capable of doing 3D. Its just they wanna wait and see if 3D takes off. Hell the Avatar game proves the 360 is capable of 3D (along with other games like Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY, and the upcoming Crysis 2).
