I only wish movies on live didn't expire.

/end rant

next on my list is going to be army of two, and the halo series (playing halo 1 atm, never played them because ive never had an xbox )
which 360? the elite (black w/ 120gb) or premium (white w/ 20gb). i got my 360 3 days ago and have been playing all night with friends, i hate how school just takes up so much of my time, 7 hours a day. i like console games alot because you don't have to upgrade every 4-6 months, but i wish they would allow a keyboard to work with the 360, the ps3 has one so why not the 360? i would totally own my friends in halo 3 if there was a keyboard and mouse that actually worked with the console in the first place.

nice. i really didn't see it worth the waste of spending $100 extra just for 100gb more. i only got a few things from XBLM like the halo map hax, and couple other things.

"consoles vs pc, which is better " this question had been asked millions of time, you can't give te exact answer about this, talking gameplay, if you rplaying FPS games, pc is more fun, because your using a mouse to aim and not using the auto-aim feature (and feel like watching the story of the game only), but for adventure and action games , its surely the console because it have better controls for such stuff... talking about graphics each generation of pcs or consoles will jump one after another, i mean you can see that when ps2 is release , you need a high end computer and spend money on a new pc to match the performance of the ps2, but after geforce 8 series are release, we surpassed the graphics power of the ps2 and now the pc has better graphics with high resolution, now after ps3 and 360 are released, you can get HD resolution and the same game of the pc now can be played on consoles, and now if you want to get a pc that will give you the same resolution and graphic power of a console you will spend a fortune, and each time you must upgrade your hardware and pay more and more money, so consoles you buy it once and play all high definition game without caring about performance, and frame rates and other things, and the story begins again, after a a while, pc hardware will become more powerful than the consoles (with the release of multi-core processing and more powerfull GPUs) and they will jump over the consoles performance and graphics, and then after a while ps4 and xbox 720 will be released and so one, one will surpass the others everytime, its like a cycle, now its time for the gamer to choose which type of gamer he is, is he like the gameplay, he can choose the WII for fun (if dont care about graphics0 if he care about playing final fanasy and gran turismo games, those are console (ps3) exclusives, and if he like to play strategy games, for sure pc will be the best choice, so it depends of the gamer to say if the pc or the console is better, but my opinion, i like to play on both, strategy games on pc and action adventure games + drifting cars games on consoles, pcs and consoles have a lot of power today, and even consoles now didnt put the full power of there consoles in there games, so expect more, you choose...
