post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have a 4 gb slim right now and want to get rid of it because i really want the. Gears 3 console in september. Thinks spening 400 plus is worth it this late n the game? Just wondering cause who knows when the new gen console will be announced.

It's a great 3rd person shooter, and if you've played the first two, the third won't let down story wise.

I think it's a waste of money, but, that's relative only to me because I don't fall for gimmick like that.

It's up to you if you want it.

Personally, I think that would be a total waste of money. It's not like the Gears xbox can do something your current system can't (in fact you just loose four gigs of flash memory).

Yes its worth it. I know 4gb slims local to me are going $130-150.

So minus that from the price, and you get:

320gb hdd.
Gears 3
2 of the new dpad controllers.
And DLC that you can only get from that package.

I think I'd rather have the Star Wars edition over the Gears version. While I realize the gears edition comes with a second controller and gears game.....for the same price and specs (360gb) you get the kinect camera and a sweeter looking box/controller with sounds customized to match the R2-D2 designed box. http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Xbo...all-33756.html

Plus it has r2d2 sounds when boot the system and eject the tray. Each have their own novelties but the star wars includes the kenect sensor. Seems the best bang for buck.

Yeah i was looking at the star wars but it doesnt come out till xmas time. I think i may just grab the gears console. My friend backed out on selling the 360. I was going to buy from craigslist but id rather not.

Kotaku has a ton of pics of the console ane i like it.
