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 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: have had mine since before launch, have had minor issues all quick to be fixed by customer service(1week), so great unit for the cost. but would recommened buying the elite or the new premium being the larger hard drive will eventually be needed.
Summary: Alright, let me get this straight...unlike most of the people who post reviews on here who DON'T have this product, I have all 3 of the newest generation consoles (PS3, 360 and Wii). I got my Xbox 360 on day 1, got my Wii on day 1, got my Ps3 a couple of months ago...Xbox 360 is by far the best console. It has the best selection and variety of games at this point, and I haven't had a single problem with it...never had to send it in for repairs and it works like a charm.
Summary: I must say that I'm completely satisfied with my 360 since my original purchase. The game library is extensive, Xbox live experiences no problems as far as I can see. I love the arcade, lots of little fun games that people love. My mother monopolizes my XBOX to play bejewelled when she's over. I play hold 'em with a few of my buddies every so often. I can't wait for the new stock of games to come out. So far I'm not regretting my purchase.
Summary: Xbox 360 is well ahead of the competition with any number of games exceeding both Playstation 3 and the Nintendo Wii... Various titles and genres are available, and with Microsoft there are constant additions on a semi-regular basis. Gameplay is enjoyable, and even with Standard TV the graphics are more than impressive. Hooked up with an HDTV and HDTV cables, the graphics are absolutely amazing.
