Tempted to buy an Xbox 360 but.... - Page 6  

post #51 of 72
Thread Starter 
Being a Playstation fan myself, ImmortalKenny, I do have to point some things out to you about the MAJOR differences between the Xbox and the Xbox 360.

The Xbox uses a single x86 processor(Celeron) and the Xbox 360 uses a Tri-core Power PPC Processor(the stuff apple was using before goin intel) which is why you need that hard drive to play xbox games. Also, 360 has more RAM, brand new graphics core from ATI and the list could go on.. So technically they are really different. Just thought I'd put it out there.

There's a lot of material on the subject of output format. There are other variables besides the cable type.

I see what all are saying. But ( for example )I'm talking about improvements. For expamle...from DVD's of the PS2, to the Blu-Ray of the PS3. That right there is a state-of-the-art improvement.

I see nothing in the 360 that is state-of-the-art. Point something out to me someone. What makes the 360 so much better than the PS3?

The 360 has a triple core CPU....Ooooh Aaaah! Big deal
More RAM, Yippee! So what

PS2 - Emotion Engine, 294 MHz
PS3 - "8-core" Cell processor (that's state of the art)

PS2 - CD games
PS3 - Blu-Ray games (big improvement, also state-of-the-art)

Hopefully you get my point that the 360 really has nothing state of the art. Just because the 360 has the BEST (sarcastic) games right now doesn't make it a good console. You can have Gears of War, I'd take any PS3 game, any day over that.

That's the bottom line folks.

3- yes. if you like online play, and have the games that support it..
4- couldn't tell ya...but most of them are for PC as well.

That's the bottom line folks. The 360 is a PS3 wanna-be made up of PC parts.
That didn't make any sense. You said the 360 is a PS3 wanna-be? Thats isn't exactly possible when the 360 came out first. You didn't do anything to compare the 360 to the original xbox. You just said it wasn't state of the art. You were just sarcastically saying that what is has is no good.

Okay...the 360 and the xbox both are PC's with PC's parts.

Happy?

Okay...big deal, I don't like gears of war.

go ahead and blow the blu-ray, theres no visual improvement to the naked eye, no movie will need 50 GB. GoW and all the games u dont have only take up to 4 GB.

I don't care about you saying its a bad game. That is personal preference. Its the way you stated it that was bad. You stated it in a way that degrades those who play it.
