I just got a call from Gamestop saying that some people didn't pick their 360's up, and they got one for me to pick up On Friday(Too late to get it tonight) Now My question is should I get it/keep it, or sell it and wait??

Dude, SELL it. Think about it, I saw in another thread that you thought you might have to wait til JANUARY to get yours because of the shortage, so if not for that call you would be waiting til January, so SELL this one, turn a HUGE profit and set aside $400 (plus $ for whatever games you want) and have the rest as spending money right now, maybe even buy a PSP with it (saw you made that comment in another post too). It doesn't make ANY sense to keep it right now they way they are going for stupidly dumb amounts on ebay.

I hear ya man, I got it last night, and I have not opened/played it yet, although I have seriously wanted to. I have even thought about opening, playing it, then selling it around X-mas time used. I remember when the PS2 came out, it was still selling for a rediculous amount used.

You could sell used, but it might GREATLY drop your profit whereas if you sell it unopened you can get enough $ to get one when the next shipment comes out AND the PSP you wanted, that is BOTH game systems you want, plus you'd STILL prolly have a bunch of $ left over judging by what I've seen on eBay. Plus with all these reports coming out about problems with it they might stop going for insane prices soon, especially if they are used ones. Sell it, get your PSP and some games and set aside $400, plus games cost, for a 360 from the next batch when the problem will prolly be fixed.

I can't believe how patheic 360 is turning out to be. At first, people said that this would be the greatest thing that ever came out, but more and more you here that it is one of the most junkiest console. I'm glad that I haven't bought one yet because I'm thinking about buying a PS3 instead of a 360.

Like NEXT fall, lol. I can't wait though. I'm DEFINATELY getting a PS3, prolly a 360 too, but not until the price drops and more games I like come out for it.

Well, I'm going to have to wait for the PS3, I've heard a lot of problems with the 360 and I think i'm more of a Playstation kind of guy myself. :)

Same here. I'm not waiting because of the probs, although NOW that might be a factor, but I was waiting even BEFORE the launch of the 360. I prefer playstation but I like both for different reasons.

As I posted in another thread at Rhino Video Games store # 84, where I work (Gamebrands Inc. owned by Blockbuster Video), we actually got our first XBOX 360 since the original 4 from the November 22nd launch (we got it two days ago....December 14th). We were given little notice before its arrival, it was a premium package. Some guy bought it within a quarter of a second :lol: He just happened to ask if we had any, pretty much expecting 'no'. We said yes and he took it without thought.

I've been really wanting to get a 360. I wanted to take the next step to gaming. But it's pretty freaking hard to do so when everywhere you go they're sold out. Another thing that made me not want one for quite a while is my mom went to Wal Mart the other night and I told her to ask if they were getting more 360s in. They said no , they are all be recalled because they have started 4 fires in costumer's houses. That's nuts!!!

It's a good thing I got Madden 06 and two great ps2 leagues to play it in

I'm glad that I haven't bought one yet because I'm thinking about buying a PS3 instead of a 360.

How is it pathetic. I really hate turning all these threads into a XBox 360 vs PS3 debate but seriously what is so junky about it?

The reliability issues are completely overblown. It is directly on par with the launch of any previous consoles with less than 1% of all people having problems. Not to mention that Microsoft has done more than their fair share in trying to work with these people, replacing the XBox within 1 week.

Have you seen screenshots between the two systems? The difference is negligable and that is hard to say since the PS3 won't even be out for a year.

As for the processor there is a huge bottleneck due to its lack of L2 cache. This was reported when comparing the systems before the 360s came out and it is reported now.

Game Programers like developing games for the 360 and say it is quite easy. The PS3 on the other hand is supposed to have a much more complicated interface with it's 7 different processors and the afforementioned lack of cache. And in console wars the winner is almost always based on games, not hardware.

This part I am not sure if it is true but I have heard it numerous times. The GPU in the PS3 is supposed to be available to PCs within the upcoming months. The one in the XBox however is advanced from this time and shouldn't be seen in a year.

Then we get onto pricing. So the PS3 is a lock to be an extra $100 with games costing $10 more. Yet back to the current consoles. The current Xbox is far and away better than the PS3 but how many games really showed it. Especially games that are ports for both. Developers aren't going to make two seperate programs they will just make one for the lowest system and port it to the next one. Just like current EA games.



The games out right now from EA are garbage. They should get better, but that is in no way Microsofts fault. If this was for the PS3 launch instead of the 360 it would be the exact same case. But there are other games out there that already display excellent graphics and gameplay and these are only in the introduction stage of a new processor design and system that developers are working with. Wait 1 year and then you will see developers really start to harness the systems power and make incredible stuff. Although I wouldn't expect EA to be apart of that.

Games like Call of Duty and Condemened have amazing visuals. The texture mapping is where you see the biggest improvements.

I really want a 360 (I have been playing my friends mostly), and I am really looking forward to the Revolution.

The 360's alright. I'm not really that impressed with it. I can definitely see the potential for greatness though. There are a few parts in Perfect Dark and Kameo that make your jaw drop. The future is bright for the 360. Oblivion should be a marvel. Right now it may look like not too much, but I can see the 2nd generation games looking spectacular. ;)

AH. Mor should do me a great favor and rent Test Drive Unlimited when it comes out and give me a review :D . So far that, Oblivion, and that Condemened game are the only ones that interest me on 360, which is why I sold the one I came across instead of keep it. The thing I wanna know about the Test Drive game is if it's like the True Crime series in the sense that it is "real" mapped. The review says it is supposed to be an actual map of the island of Oahu, which is where I live half the year, and I think it'd be so sick to be able to drive around to places I know and stuff in a videogame. It was fun with True Crime Streets of LA (the other half of the year I live jus outside of LA) but I think it'd be even cooler in a Hawai'i setting and with a game like Test Drive instea dof a shooter game. Here's a review, looks awesome:

Well, that depends... It's a higher resolution, but it's still interlaced (you only see 1/2 of the lines actually being generated). So 1080i on TV looks great. But interlaced images still run at 30 frames per second max. On a 720p image, you're getting a full screen (the P stands for Prograssive... meaning you're seeing the entire image) and it runs at 60 frames per second. I prefer 720p for games and 1080i for HDTV viewing... Most people probly won't be able to see the difference between 1080i and 720p.
