A Perfect Score
08-10-2006, 10:19 AM
ok so here is the deal. I already have an xbox, but ive bin considering buying a 360 for a while. But ive got mixed reviews on it. Some people say tis not relaly that much better then a regular xbox, while other say its awesome. SO im asking you guys. Should i buy one, or is it a waste of money if i already have an xbox? Ive also bin reading about madden and NCAA 2007, both of which have new features only for 360. That another reason im considering buying it. Wat do u guys think?

I would if I were you. The 360 is worth every penny and I've yet to have a problem with it (knock on wood) and I've had it for about 7 months.

I wasnt impressed enough with it to pay $400 for it. Im going to see how the PS3 is, if that doesnt impress me either im going to stick with what I have for now.

I would definitely reccomend getting a 360. It already has a year up on the new systems that are about to come out. That means most likely the games will be better on 360 for a good amount of time.

idk... it seems to me that 360 is taking some 'things' out of games. like ncaa doesnt have campus legend mode, create a player, create a prospect, espn magazine and xbox does. but it does have amazing graphics and im sure games will be better then current-gen in the long run

You need to take opinions of those with a 360 not those without. It seems ppl without them seem to think they are not worth it which may be because they dont have one.

Not so much harder to make...more the fact of the cost it takes to develop the technology and create more efficient ways to produce blueray disks is what makes them more expensive.

I own a 360 and I highly recommend getting one also. Its more of like a entertainment system DVD's, Music, Games. Its all enhanced. The dashboard is way better you can download football, games, music, tv themes etc, demos, game trailers, music videos. NCAA is amazing the graphics are incredible and with Madden coming out in a week and a half and some other big titles arriving in the fall, a 360 will be a must get. And on September 17th Microsoft is planning to launch a new Wireless headest, Racing wheel controller, and Xbox Live Vision... Xbox Live Vision is like a webcam to see other people while you play on live. Should be pretty fun..

Just look at it this way you can get:

Xbox 360
- 20 GB Hard drive
- wireless controller
- HD AV cable
- ethernet network cable
- wired XBOX Live headset
- white faceplate
- XBOX Live Silver service

and 3 games for about $580

PS3
2 controllers
3 games

for about $1000 dollars...

I'll leave it to you...

I'd just like to add in defense of PS3...

Online is free, unlike XBOX Live. And unlike 360, you dont need to buy the best version of PS3, the other one still has a 20 gb hard drive, and that, I imagine will be around the same price as a high-end 360. Not to mention, a PS3, because they use BluRay, will down the road have better games, because more space on the disk.

Not to mention, a PS3, because they use BluRay, will down the road have better games, because more space on the disk.

"The $500 PlayStation 3 will be lacking wireless internet capabilities (although a separate adapter will likely be available around launch time), it will not support SD cards, Memory Sticks or Compact Flash cards, and it will not support HDMI video output without the purchase of an adapter. When you move up to the $600 PS3 console, you will get all of these features out of the box, as well as a 60GB hard drive instead of the 20GB hard drive, included in the $500 model." - Game Daily

Plus, because Live makes you pay for a unified online service, you have things like Friends Lists, Live Aware (you always know exactly what your friends are playing), and Arcade, which I love to death. Sure PS3 has a hard drive with the $500 and free online, but don't forget the things they had to cut back to make that happen.

Anyway, there's a rumor going around that starting on Monday, if you purchase a 360, you'll have a choice of one free game (either Perfect Dark Zero, Kameo: Elements of Power, Project Gotham Racing 3, or Dead or Alive 4. So if you are planning on buying a 360, wait until next week.

I had the 360. Its a nice system. Few good games. Nice features. Great Online. But the only thing i caught myself doing with it. Was tripping on the Visualizers and playing music thru the ipod. NCAA and MADDEN 06 are the same exact game, and both are god awful. And i expect Madden 07 for the 360 to be the same as NCAA except pros with new options and add ons. It is not worth the 500 dollars you will drop if you go out and get the system. You will regret it once you realize nothing good is out. a few good titles are soon going to be released. But with the Industry these days. I could guarantee 75% of them will get delayed. so you will have to struggle with boring stuff. I myself intend on using the money i got for selling my 360 towards purchasing the Wii, which i know will not be on the level of 360 or PS3 but the fun factor will the be through the roof. be smart. Save your money. and if you do decide to get the 360. and you want a game other than football. the only game i could tell you to get is Elder Scrolls. Good luck on your purchase.

i'd agree if we all knew it wouldn't be half that in 8 months when there are actually some worthwhile games out.

i've just never seen the point in getting one immediately. the cost:fun ratio is just abysmal this early in release.

it took about a year and a half for the original xbox's price to drop to $200. i fully expect the same from the new systems (as a relative drop. 360 at $250 wouldn't be a bad deal, but $400 is ridiculous and moreso when you consider that my parent's never bought me an HDTV [not a knock on anyone who has one, but i'm not about to buy a 1500$ TV just to take advnatge of the $400 system i just bought]).

But is the extra $200 not worth a year of entertainment? I personally don't have a gaming system, but If I did, I'd get it as soon as possible at regular price. I'm thinking of getting a PS3 when it comes out. I kinda miss video games. Especially madden. I think playing other people on-line would be endless fun.

in your situation it may be worth it. given that i have an original xbox, i have zero motivation to buy the new system, since i've already got something that will play most of the new releases (the worthwhile ones at least) for the next year. for me, the $200 i spent 2 years ago was well worth it. the $200 i spend next year will be far more worth it to me than the extra $200 i would spend now for virtually no added functionality.

It is not worth the 500 dollars you will drop if you go out and get the system. You will regret it once you realize nothing good is out. a few good titles are soon going to be released. But with the Industry these days. I could guarantee 75% of them will get delayed. so you will have to struggle with boring stuff. I myself intend on using the money i got for selling my 360 towards purchasing the Wii, which i know will not be on the level of 360 or PS3 but the fun factor will the be through the roof. be smart. Save your money. and if you do decide to get the 360. and you want a game other than football. the only game i could tell you to get is Elder Scrolls. Good luck on your purchase.

Madden and NCAA were the first builds on the 360. Thats why they were sort of generic. Madden 07 is a completely different game since they had a year to add on to the 06 build. Everything has changed. Iit has all the features of the current gen madden and more. So if you plan on playing madden the best one will be on 360. plus if you seen any of the videos and screenshots for it you know the graphics are sick.



PS screw spending 600 dollars on a PS3. Ill play my 360 for 2 years than get that when its 300-400 dollars.

blah. buy one next year when they're actually moderately reasonably priced.

anything over $200 for a system with a serious lack of worthwhile games is an utter joke, and the only thing worse is the number of 13-17 year olds who convinced their parents to spend $800 to buy one as soon as it came out.

:? I spent $400.

that's still far too much for something that my three year old computer out-performs.

I'm calling BS right there. :wink:

if you can find me a game on 360 that takes advantage of even 12% of the available resources on the set, i'll concede. i don't buy that the games are taking anywhere near full advantage of the system yet.

again, in a year, they probably will.

That isn't what you said...

But either way, I bet Oblivion looks better on the 360 than it would on your computer, just to name one game I know is on both for now.

"$400 for something my 3 year old computer out-performs" ? meh, semantics.

I'll accept Oblivion as a valid answer.

otoh, if i put $400 into my computer currently, it would still out-perform the 360. valid counterpoint is, of course, that the 360 is probably much less glitch prone.

do you have an HDTV?
