Kinda why most multiplatform games not only run better on the 360 but also look better. Some games just feel more choppy and experience more frame drops on the ps3. So really All those dumb 360 users that have had the most consistent performance with the least amount of problems and tends to have the best looking games must really hated their purchase. Uncharted on the ps3 looks good but its mostly good textures and lacks AA, still is my fav PS3 series though. 360 users also gets the newest dashboard and has more media features then the PS3 could ever dream for. Cinavia killed the media aspect of the ps3, its only good as blu-ray player these days. I know a bunch of people that Watch ESPN on their 360 all the time. So all those people that actually use their 360 are dumb as you say? really your dumb for saying it. Not everyone wants a gaming PC, most people would have trouble fixing it if something went wrong.
360 is by far the most mature console of this generation.

amen to that!! i bought an xbox this month and i love it, it has so much awesome features biggrin.gif

Myself and two of my best friends have gone through a total of THIRTEEN xbox 360's.
You'd be surprised how many waited for black friday to get another console...

Remain superior, likely yes.

Never be ported, just can't see them turning down such a cash cow, and such an easy one at that. I think they will just milk it. By saying no PC release, that leaves JUST Xbox, as they obviously won't put out a PS3 copy tongue.gif So that would push sales of an EOL console that will relatively soon be outdated and replaced. Halo has a massive fanbase, and a frantic one at that, this series gets some serious release time sales. MS would almost have to be stupid NOT to milk it in a business sense, and no better way to basically ensure more money, than to say EXCLUSIVELY for Xbox. There is no other platform. Don't have an Xbox? Gotta get one now sucka! Then when all is forgotten, new games are out and Halo sales are dropping off and such, they can simply release a PC version and generate massive sales all over again, from a single game.

You could be right, they could be serious with no PC game... I just can't help but think its all marketing. But hey, thats why its called an opinion I guess smile.gif

My question is...why? Is this since the 360 first launched? I had my 360 from 2007 until last year when I gave it away. No RRoD, nothing. Just gave it to a buddy because I wanted the slim version (needed the hdmi for various reasons). But I sold that bad boy earlier this year to fund my Vita. Rarely touched my 360, never been happier. But after that many 360's why keep investing? Or did Microsoft replace them for free? The only games I enjoyed for the 360 that made the console worthwhile was Lost Odessy, CoD4 (just the first MW) and Guitar Hero 3 lol. Played the bajeebus out of those games.

I don't care for the current gen consoles that much. I honestly finished very few games because everything has been so disappointing, especially considering how much money was spent. I have more finished games on my Wii than my ps3 and 360 combined. I will stick to replaying old school SNES/ps1 games and gems I was never able to afford when I was younger. Even most current PC games aren't that great. The video game industry is not putting out anything of interest to me. Just a lot of very pretty games with no real content or replay value (with a few exceptions).

I almost picked one up but I have a feeling the next gen Xbox is coming in 2013.

I only went though one Xbox. I had one from 2005 (Non HDMI - 20GB HDD) that died in 2008. I bought an Elite and never had it die on me and I used it until 2011 then sold it.

At this point in time you can pick up a refurbished Xbox 360 arcade HDMI w/ a controller for $99 from GameStop. It's really a good value.
