[USA T]Microsoft sells 750,000 Xbox 360s during Black Friday - Page 6  

post #51 of 153
Well... we all know quality has no correlation with sales in this sector.

While advancement isn't always needed or top priority, stagnation would most likely slowly dissipate and color the industry a dark grey. Continue to throw confetti and rejoice about the news. It's always a double edged sword thumb.gif

I picked up a 250GB Slim [$300] that came with Halo 4, Forza 4, Black Ops II, and Skyrim for $250.
I got it mostly to play with my friends, since only 1 of them plays PC. I have to admit I'm enjoying myself more on Xbox than I have on PC in a good 6 or 7 years.
I also have a Xim Edge [M+KB emulator], so destroying an entire team is an easy feat.

actually yes, you are an idiot...

especially when an xbox 4gb model is ~129-149 ish (i paid 129.99 2 years ago for my slim 4gb model)
a Western Digital 250gb 2.5 HDD is about 60 bucks
and the caddy is 10 dollars of ebay....

the program to flash said drive is free and you have saved 100 bucks-ish....

how did you manage to get new releases for zero dollars?? black friday is good but its not that good...

The only idiots are people like you. Its complete rumor and speculation galore when the new console MIGHT come out. And while that is going on. I will continue to play great games for it. Times are also tough atm. People are looking at best bang for the buck. Judging by these sales. It would be stupid for MS to release a new console next year. I hope they delay it. Obviously 360 still has some legs left.

Anyone here who enjoys gaming should bury that Elitist Master race mentality and just play where the games are. You are only cheating yourselves.

Weird since the PC has a larger library of games than all of the consoles that came out in the 21st century.

I had a disagreement with microsoft so i refuse to buy a 360. I own a ps3 and a gaming pc, my pc didn't cost 1000 like people in this thread of stated. It cost around 500ish because i never pay retail ^_^. I love my ps3 because it does something the 360 doesn't do, and that's 3D gaming. For those who haven't played black ops or any game for that matter in 3D, you are missing out ^_^. Waiting to get something just because something new might come out would seriously dampen PC builders, like most everyone on this site. We know something new and more powerful will come out, and normally come out sooner rather than later. So why wait? Get it now and enjoy it.

It's not coming to PC. And if it does, the 360 version will still remain superior.

If you haven't owned a 360 within the past 5 years, why buy one now?

If you haven't owned a smartphone within the past 4 years why buy one now?

PS3 biased fanboy. 360 does 3D as well even with Blops 2.

Aw, did the little kid cry? Seriously, people like you that make false claims about other people need to just shut up.
I no longer wonder why I am angry today. Besides, that is only one game that does 3D, FGW.
