XBOX360 or wait?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I've almost exhausted PS3 exclusives that are of my type. Is it time to get a 360 or just wait for the 720 which is probably going out next year? Are there a lot of exclusives worth getting the 360 over the PS3?

It's worth buying an Xbox 360 JUST to play Lost Odyssey. That's the only game which made me think a couple times before selling my Xbox 360.

I'd say more likely late 2012 or 2013.

well ms did announce that the 360 was only midway towards its life cycle, they had to squeeze every drop of $ from the 360 cause from what i heard, they lost alot of money and investors want to recoup

also, if you buy now, all the games are cheaper, well the older ones, and you get the newest revised 360 for a cheaper price.

a pretty good deal if you ask me.

well run through the list in wikipedia. nothing interests me. most are FPS and I don't like console FPS no matter how good they are.

The original Xbox's life cycle wasn't over when the 360 came out... It'll be the same for the 360. The end of the 360 doesn't immediately dictate that is the release date of the next console.
