Call me ignorant, but what exactly is an Xbox 360? I mean, what does it do as opposed to other consoles?
You're not the only one who thinks this. What makes this one more special than any other console.



Who remembers when the Dreamcast came out? That was suppossed to be the best thing ever. Much more powerful than anything else. Best graphics, best games etc etc. Where is it now? :bleh:

I've heard the 360 isn't much better on the graphics side compared to the PS2 or original Xbox.

Xboxes dont really allows for game mods, or compatibility with anything but Xbox games...

Plus Xbox's dont let you check email, use msn or download porn. Thats why I luffs my pc.

Give it time this next generation i feel the ability to do all the things Danny mentioned will be available to do. Uh explain how pc's get dated when a console stays pretty much the same for 5 years :whistle: Somehow the ability to upgrade a console hasn't been used yet.

I think the XBox360 wil be the big loser in the next-gen console battle. Before, it had the selling point of being the most powerful console (now it's not, the PS3 is more powerful).
The Nintendo Revolution is the only console that's actually making any new innovation, the controller looks like it could be good and the access to old games sound great. In fact, Nintendo is the only company of the big three making any innovaive effort whatsoever.
The Golden Joystick Awards lost their last scrap of credibiity, in my opinion, when the PSP won the award for innovation (it was just that, a portable Playstation, nothing's changed at all since the PS1).

Ah, but you can upgrade pc's. I'd like to see YOU upgrade a PS1 to PS3 standards.

Why bother? Although, there is a very important point Stebbi stated. I won't change to consoles (although I had console earlier than PC).

Another thing: Consoles dont have enough buttons. Me and 3 of my friends went on one of my friends Xbox, it took us a good half our just to set up our characters for it. Ugh.. an a-z key layout, no individual keys for any of the letters, takes forever to set up the game... And then its so hard to look and aim! And it never explains what the buttons do...
And those random comples moves...
