My dad said he would buy me an Xbox 360 if I could find out about it's pros and cons. So can anyone here tell me if it's a good idea to buy the game console.
Please and thank you.

I have mine for almost a year and it's been amazingly trouble free. Sounds like a jet plane about to take off (this IS normal. LOL) but they've made it possible to install games on the Hard Drive now with NXE (requires online connection, which is free) which reduces wear and tear on the system, the disc drive, the disc too, and it shortens the load times.

Playing on-line costs like, 40-50 bucks a year if you want it, though actually getting an account to browse the marketplace and download demos and free stuff is free. Downloads do cost money, but you don't need any of them.

The reliability is MUCH better now than it was several years back, and the RROD deal is 3 years after you buy it as it's the most common problem. But if say, your video card breaks, you can force RROD...somehow. Ask Gamefaqs. It's technically illegal, but no one seems to bother. The biggest issue is probably heat. This thing get's pretty hot (but not burn your hands on it hot. Hotter than my Gamecube got that's for sure), and all that junk is crammed in there tightly.

Game wise, it's a personal preference that I can't answer. I'm quite happy with the selection.

Hint: Skip Halo, get Orange Box. You'll thank me.

Do you take Half Life 2, the best game ever OR some lame sci-fi thing who's fanbase is mostly 14 and is only worth it for the online play.

I'll get the games someday, but I'm not willing to spend more than $30 to get all of them.

...Orange Box has Team Fortress 2, which has AWESOME multiplayer. With...smart people.

There's why. This either because it's new period, or because the new ones are built better.

Protip: "Orange Box" and "Bioshock" ASAP. I think you can grab both for around $60 together or less now.

When I can, I will. smile.gif

And I've heard some people get the RRoD just as they turn their 360 on for the first time...dunno if it's by accident or design, lol

Orange Box is like, $15 at Circuit City this week. Jesus it dropped in price FAST.

I'd download the "Bioshock" demo first. I know it was on the receiving end of some MASSIVE praise when it came out and won the whole GOTY award, but it still isn't for everyone. Though if you like FPSs and "Resident Evil" it'll probably be a favorite.

I have no idea if the second part is true, but it probably is. One guy apparently bought a "new" one at Best Buy and found a copy of "Call of Duty 4" in his system.

He did return it. Wasn't new. Probably.

Everyone? I'm sure there are people out there who don't, seeing as I'M one of them. tongue.gif

I tried it out, and no offense but it doesn't really appeal to me gameplay-wise. But heck I'm not gonna rip on people cuz they enjoy it, lol

I don't care for this system at all but I have seen it in action and tried it before as my friend has one. Usually on weekends me and some friends get together and play various games though most of the time it's Halo 3. -__- I just watch when they play that because I absolutely despise Halo.
