Xbox 360 - Love and Hate relationship
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I've had an Xbox 360 for about 2 years now. I'd say it's a love/hate relationship. When it works, I have crazy amount of fun! The multiplayer is much better than the ps3 (I have both) and the exclusives are worth getting this consoles for. The hate part of the relationship comes from the fact that you have to pay for Xbox live and that I currently have the "open tray" error.
Excerpt: I purchased the xbox 360 for Christmas about 4 years ago. It was very popular and in high demand at the time so I can had to camp out at Best Buy overnight during the winter time. I waited about 8 hours in the cold and was 5th in line. I got the premium xbox 360 for $430. I got home and connected everything and was playing games within minutes. I'm a big sports game player so my games of choice at the time were NBA Live and Madden.
Perfect Xbox for gamers who want the quality for a lower price.

Excerpt: where the xbox was amazing but rough around the edges, the xbox 360 fixes a lot of shortcomings of the original version of the microsoft xbox. This is the ideal xbox for the light gamer who wants to play with the latest technology and graphics but doesnt need a lot of space to store a lot of memory. Although you have to pay to play online for a service called xbox live and the ps3 you dont, the xbox is established online and offer a higher quality of gameplay online. ...
Excerpt: I bought this for a Christmas present for my then 10 year old son. He is now 13. But all my kids and neighbors play it too. Someone is always on it. WE also use it to watch netflix. The thing is running 24 hours a day. I have never seen a product last this long that is never turned off. I do have a problem with some of the accessories though. Since purchasing the system I have bought at least twenty gaming handles. They are not at all durable.
Summary: This is a great system, nonetheless. However, I find myself playing my PS3 more often simply because of the free online play which is not offered in Xbox. As far as game releases, it has heaps of different awesome games.
Summary: I have to say that the XBOX 360 is amazing, it eliminates the need to be constantly upgrading your PC to play different games, is very cheap (got mine for £55 GBP) and although they are prone to RROD, mine that was made in Sept 05 is still working great nearly 4 years on.
Summary: A great system, I got mine for free as broken with the RROD error. I fixed it and am using it but I have to say that I am totally disgusted with the design of the inside of the console. It is horrible. There are so many errors that I could describe that it would take too long to describe them all in detail, a quick summary includes: -GPU Heatsink too small -GPU directs air to DVD drive -CPU + GPU heatsinc not completly covered by airduct -A spot for a front fan was not...
Summary: Pretty good, the library of games is very good. I played my friend's 360 several times, seeing that he's got a hell load of games (over 50... Not a chipped XBOX) and the controller impresses me, but the buttons are awkward for a PS3 owner. I personally love how the mics are free and how people use them for games. PS3 users tend to talk rubbish and don't play the game with tactics. So overall, great console, great games, but its key feature that put me off it - RROD.
Summary: The 360 is an Ok system, has nice graphics, a nice library of games, can be used as a media player. The bad online gaming not free, has no wireless networking, no high def drive normal dvd, can't transfer some of my media to its HDD.
