    This was probably about a year 1/2 ago. I thought the xbox only came with a 1 yr warranty? I just know he was covered under warranty so he sold the thing. I hear the xbox fixed some of it's problems but still have a high failure rate. My roommate was tempted to buy another one but was turned off by the high failure rates to this day. Think he said something like 13-15%

    Whereas the PS3 is like 2-3%

    That's all I've got to say.

    that's funny. you'd think i'd get pretty bored... but nope.

    pretty surprised at all that empty rack space that's not at all empty at bestbuy.




    you 360 guys are just all pent up after hearing the same arguement in reverse for so long between the ps2 and xbox.

    funny thing is, the ps2 is still unbelievably strong in hardware and software sales.

    PS2 > Xbox

    The Xbox had a lot of potential, just like the PS3.

    Problem is, you can't play potential.

    again, i'm playing just fine.
    got about 10 disc based games and 10 or so PSN games. really i don't have enough time to play everything i want to.

    maybe a year or so ago it was mostly potential, but this machine has got long legs, and it's already up to speed.

    I'm just ribbin' ya.

    It doesn't really matter what system you prefer or anyone does.

    If it has the games you want, then it's perfectly alright.

    I have a 360. Just wish I had the time and the money to get some more games for it.
    I really want to get a PS3 though for GT5 and MGS4.

    I never could get into the Gran Turismo series. Started off too slow and you could never get a half decent car to get you started.

    I liked Forza 2 better simply because I could start with a Corvette Stingray.

    i never liked the 360 becuase of all its flaws with the ring of death and then the death of the additional hd dvd drive that turned out useless for the 360, so i but a PS3 gotta love the full hd blu-ray free gaming network instead of paying that xbox live.

    but anyways i am a big gamer its like a museum i my house got:
    atari 2600
    Nes
    Snes
    Genesis
    Saturn
    PS1, PS2, PS3
    Dreamcast
    Xbox
    First gen Gameboy
    Atari Lynx
    PSP

    All work great still
    i have opened up my eyes to a new world that new world is Mac

    Well, it was meant as an obscure reference. If I was really suggesting the lack of a good console, I'd have mentioned Intellivision.
