Default Re: Xbox 360 Price revealed and Available for preorder!

How did I know this would turn into a flame thread? :P
It's a matter of opinion, I've been using xbox live for over 2 years now and its unbeatable for online service, and anyway I just prefer the games in general.
I have a ps2 and xbox, I prefer to play my xbox.
PS3 isn't going to 'pwn' the 360, it packs more power yeah, but this means nothing if you don't have the games/service to back it up. PS3 will still be awesome no doubt but hey that's my view.
As i've said, I'm waiting until I can spend alot on a computer (In a full time job) to get one.

your right, if they did that it would kill them. it would be kinda funny though because Halo 3 is susposed to come out the same day PS3 is so it will criple it. if the PS3 doesn't come out till 2007 neither will Halo 3,lol.

I wouldn't get one because with out an HDTV, you really can't appreciate it very well. Maybe if my parents buy an HDTV, I'll get one and keep it at there house for my little bro.

I have a HDTV lol, cheapest one around mind, but it's great.
Oh yeah and David I was also pretty suprised at the price, considering the PS2 was 350-400 on release, but hey times change don't they.

Looks like gaming systems are costing more and more everytime a new platform is released. Gameplay and technology has improved a whole bunch which is good to see but if people can afford it, good for them.

Maybe I'll wait for Playstation 4...hopefully by that time, I will have a steady income.

Well dishdog, my HDTV is downstairs and i'm going to want to play upstairs for the majority so I'm going to be playing on a 19 inch CRT, who cares honestly? I agree with you on that one, its the games that matter, and its not gonna like ''OMG i can see the pixels floating around cause i'm not using HDTV!''
