View Full Version : Still can't decide!

I've had $170 to spend for a month now, and still don't know what to do with it!
Should I:
A. Buy an X-box set from EB games with Halo 2, a 12-month Xbox live starting period, And crimson skies for $300, assuming my parents will help me pay for the rest.
B. Buy 3 games for a PC I already own.

There are specific advantages and disadvantages to each. I belive I've been missing out, so I do want to get an Xbox, but isn't the Xbox 2 being released in 2006?

The other disadvantage to the Xbox is that it will cost me, personally, money to play over the internet. Normally I'd play over the internet using my PC, and that doesn't cost me anthing. I don't pay the bills! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

But the Xbox has had some terrific games. Can you play Halo 2 on a PC? Nope. Rainbow Six 3? Well, you can, but it's really different. Mechassault? Nope.

Point is, I can't choose.

Buy xbox with halo 2

I dont understand why would you buy 3 PC games if you have them allready? (have illegal version?)

01-09-2005, 07:35 AM
No, I would buy them for A PC that I already have. The issue is that I currently don't have an Xbox, and would only be able to get 1 game for it.

No way I would waste 300 dollars on the Xbox. Espically when the Xbox 2 is being released very soon.

01-09-2005, 08:12 AM
Well, it depend on what game you want. If it's some really good games then I would suggest you to buy them (such as HL2, SCCT, BIA or Stalker etc.)

Anyway, I think it's a bit late for x-box. It is still a great console but new-gen is on the way.

When will the Xbox 2 be released? If it's in 2005, I'm not buying one. If it's 2006, then I might.

01-09-2005, 09:02 AM
holiday 2005 if not, early 2006. So its no use getting one now.

If you don't have HL 2, I would recomend you get it.

01-09-2005, 10:21 AM
Can't. My parents still think if I play it I'll turn into a psycotic serial killer http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

ROFL! halo 2 is just, if not MORE violent then Hl2. PC isn't going anywhere for a while, xbox is. I recommend getting HL2, S.A.L.K.E.R., SCCT, and Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion.

I've decided to scrap the idea of getting an Xbox altogether. Now, I will buy in march:
SCCT CE For the PC
Battlefield 2 DVD edition for the PC
And KOTOR II: The Sith Lords for the PC.

I'm just going to wait until the Xbox 2 is released. There's supposedly going to be a "Halo 2.5" released at launch, with updated graphics, and multiplayer support. At least, this is the rumour going around.
