Meh, dont want an XBox 360.
80% of the games are/will be sports games and the games that I am interested in will be released for the PC aswell.

PC, IMO is the best platform becuase it is so versitile. .


Yea but a computer thats as powerful as the 360 cost $2,000+. I'd much rather spend $400 on an xbox.

I think the initial console rush is futile. Mainly because most of the developpers are still working on previous generation games and some are ported on both the previous and Next generation consoles(ie: Peter Jackson's King Kong(Xbox version looks amazing, I'm intrigued as to what the 360 version will look like)) Most of the anticipated games will be released in the next 6 months to 1 year(Oblivion, Mass Effect, Gears of War, DOA 4, just to name a few.).

Secondly, the initial release price is somewhat absurd, In a year, maybe less, the price will have gone down by approxamitly 100$. If I had one, I'd probly be selling it on Ebay seeing as how much they are going for, I've seen a single 360 and some games go for as much as five thousand US. But then again this could have all been avoided if Microsoft hadn't decided on such a huge launch. The 360 will be out worldwide in less than 2 weeks, previous generations saw their console released worldwide over the courses of multiple months.


Also the whole Console VS PC thing is overated and cliché. Anyone smart enough and able to crunch the numbers will see that both average the same price. The main difference is you pregressively spend the money on your PC rather than ditch out one huge pile every 4-5 years for a console. As for the whole I prefer keyboards and mouse thing, that has got to be the lamest excuse ever. Most games that come out on consoles have control schemes which are optimised for consoles(Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia, Dead or Alive) sure there are exceptions like the First Person Shooter genre, but you aren't really limited when you can get yourself and adapter like the SmartJoy Frag(there is bound to be one released for Xbox 360) And if you start playing with one more than the other you are obviously going to get accustomed to one over the other.


Overall it's just a matter or preference and adaptation.

I like Playstation better than Xbox. I've got both PSX and PS2 Very Happy

Some games are better on console(Some types RPG's, driving and sports games) and some are way better on a computer(FPS and strategy games).
If i had to choose, i would ofcourse pick the cpomuter
A computer is expansive but versitile, you can do whatever you want with a computer. You can play games, surf the web, make things such as pictures 3d models, games and webistes.
The consloe is mainly for gaming and nothing more. But i'm very happy to own my PS2 though, i've got plenty of qualty time with that. I don't regret buing that

Nazzy, Trust PS no longer, Final Fantasy is going to Xbox 360!

Ps: I have nothing against playstation, I have something against the company that owns it, Sony. But that is another story for another time

We at our university have been brainwashed by an ATI graphics chip developer who has worked on the Xbox 360 gpu. Shocked Must... have... rendering capabilities... Shocked
