[USA T]Microsoft sells 750,000 Xbox 360s during Black Friday - Page 7  

post #61 of 153
Having owned both a PS3 and Xbox, it all comes down to personal preference. I preferred the titles on the PS3 and so I stuck with it. Nowadays it's really only down to the game library and possibly the online service. Xbox Live is more feature packed than PSN however it comes at a price. I've never had an issue playing games such as Black Ops 2 online over PSN. Let's stop bickering over which one's better than which, shall we?

I'm currently looking into getting a 360. Idiot? Maybe, but I don't care. I'm out of PC gaming for now and want something to pass the time. I'm also excited about the integration it has with my new Windows Phone 8 smartphone and my Windows 8 laptop. Might as well smile.gif

Why would you buy a new console when you had a 3 year warranty? The new Valhalla SoC aren't susceptible to the heat issues anymore, so no one should have a failed 360 at this point. Besides, a sale is a sale... Why would that matter to the Xbox division?

Typical Song fanboy with backwards logic....

Lets see... Xbox 360 breaks so much and yet people are still buying them at a pace far greater than the PS3. Thus we can logically conclude people enjoy the Xbox 360 millions of times more than the PS3, which is why the PS3 entered the market in last place, and has always remained in last place. ROTHLMAO.

Xbox 360 > PS3

Nice sales for the Xbox. I have a 360 Slim, I dropped a 120GB hard drive in it and played it for a while. I built my new rig and found it better because I have a do it all gaming system, I don't see the point in going back to a console unless PC games get completely phased out. If that ever happens I think I'll stop playing games all together. I'm about to graduate high school this year and go to school for Networking, for me it makes sense to have a gaming pc than a console. I can just do it all on one system.

Not a surprise, the prices of these things are so good right now, $199AUD for a 4GB console and $299AUD for a 250GB console with 4 games...

Compared to what I paid for the original which was like $600 with no games, and another $600 for the $120GB elite, then around $400 for my current 250GB slim...

I'm expecting some good deals closer to Xmas over in Australia.
