For future refernece, posting in all caps is considered yelling, which is rude. Also, try proof-reading before posting.

So, I basically bought a 360 for Elder Scrolls: Oblivion and AC (whenever it comes out). You will notice both of these are also coming out for PS3. I got the 360 over PS3 for one reason and one reason only: the price. That said, the 360 is a good system. Graphics are good, there's a decent variety of games (MUCH better than the original Xbox), and I haven't had any problems with it yet (knock on wood).

Other than the above-mentioned games, I've also enjoyed Lost Planet, Gears of War (though I don't think it's as good as everyone says it is, it's still a good game), and alot of original Xbox games I missed out on, since I had a PS2 over Xbox. Games demos are great, lets me try a game out before wasting any time on the full version. I hate you have to pay to play games online, and because of that I woun't be doing much online play. Both systems have potential, it's all about game preferences, and whether you'd rather have rumble of motion-sensing (it's a small factor). I'd rather have a PS3, but I don't want to pay an extra $300 to play the same games (though I will eventually have to get a PS3 for Ratchet & Clank Future and Kingdom Hearts 3).

Happy gaming!

It doesn't overheat much but it has errors sometimes. Oblivion's great on it. AC will be of course. Rainbow Six Vegas and Splinter Cell Double Agent. Plus there's alot of games on arcade like Totem Ball, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, and Pac-man (never tried it but heard it's good.

I've tried the Xbox 360 (my buddy have one) and the games does not glitch. All the games made for Xbox 360 are made to not glitch on the Xbox 360. It would be stupid to make a game that need the power of an gamer computer for a PSOne, right? (That's an example)

One of the Big problems with it is that you'll have to pay around 20$
each month to play online, rather than with the PS3.

If you want to buy it; why not?
There are no problems with the hardwere (it does sound alot though)

It's not prepared as the PS3 for the future games, (don't worry, it'll take some time for the games to need more power) but for now the games for PS3 and Xbox 360 are pretty much the same (Grapichs, Physics and more) so you should buy it.

Don't take the "not so prepared for the future" stuff negative, please... I'm NOT trying to talk bad about the Xbox 360


My Advise is BUY IT!!! IT ROCKS!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif

And I recomend
Gears of War (trailers: http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=1650 )
Lost Planet (trailers: http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=2288 )
Halo 3 (trailers: http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=2606 )
Viva Pinata (just kidding)

No, only a few of the first ones overheated.
Mine have never overheated, even after 10 hours straight of playing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
Graphics-wise, I don't think it's too bad.
Enchanted Arms had some very, very amazing and beautiful scenery in it, and I was playing on low detail (dont have a HDTV http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif)

I think 360 is great http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
It's easy to use, and personally I love the themes and how your able to play your own music while playing games http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hmm... The best games so far (for me) would be Gears of War, Ninety-Nine Nights and Enchanted Arms http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
And the ones I'm definetaly waiting for is Fable 2, AC, Halo Wars and (kind of) Halo 3.
There's probably more I'm waiting for that I can;t think of right now http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Personally I don't like the PS3 at all. Have you seen their first release games? I had a PS2, loved it. I just don't like the price of the PS3, the controller, or the games that came out. First impressions are everything, and they failed. Thats just my 2 cents.

03-04-2007, 10:56 AM
have you seen the 360 release games...? atleast ps3 has one good game... (resistance: fall of man) how come first impressions for the 360 didn't mean anything? can't say that if that's not true hmm..?

honestly just bashing your argument... cause it's not a good one i own a ps3 and wii and looking forward to the time when i pick up a 360 ...

there's just not enough to go on right now it's all about what games come out for what and there's nothing right now for wii or ps3 so right now 360 (lost planet, and gears) all the way but we'll have to wait for wii has got zelda.... and ps3 has resistance but heavenly sword and motorstorm are coming out so we'll just have to wait and see

Ok, first off, PS3 has shot itself in the foot anyways. One reason is selling it for 600 bucks. Another reason is, graphics wise, it's pretty pathetic. The Xbox 360 launch titles were much better graphics wise and gameplay wise. It's also been proven that the 360 has a better GPU, so nuff said.

And btw, I would like to work at gamestop too. How's the pay?

03-05-2007, 04:02 PM
Resistance (launch) = gears of war (1 year into xbox360 life) but graphics is all opinion nowadays... -_-

Retired, noticed how I wasn't comparing resistance to Gears of War? I was comparing it to the Xbox 360 launch titles such as Call of Duty 2, which I think looks better than Resistance.

Also, damn that does suck. If I were you, I would quit lol.

RetiredHatch
03-05-2007, 05:42 PM
I know i wasn't really comparing resistance go gears i was really comparing ps3 launch (resistance) to 1 year xbox360 games (gears)

resistance and gears are my examples in my opinion resistance looks better than most 360 games... but again graphics are all opinion and it's all about gameplay gears looks like a lot of fun but the gore would get old after a while...

and nah it's alot of fun working at gamestop better than working at IHOP as a waiter or something or anywhere as a waiter http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif or anywhere with food... or at a movie theatre.... or anywhere.... gamestop is a good job...

y'know i never applied at gamestop i was just helping out a customer he asked which console would be best and i asked what he was looking for and he basically said a bunch of stuff that meant simple/interactive (games at an arcade) and so i started telling him the differences between the consoles and the manager was impressed and hired me

Either one would be a good choice. Xbox costs less but you have to pay for online. PS3 costs more but the online is free.

-- Just a side note, Gears is not really that great of a game. Single player is good, but I think that the multiplayer is not great. I did enjoy the chainsaw though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif --

You're logic is an irrevocable failure. The only thing with any merit you said is "I just don't like the price of the PS3". The controller's the same, and the launch titles are amazing if you're intelligent enough to open your eyes and look.
