How much is the 360 worth? - Page 2

And it's networking functionality only has half the features, just the basics really: friends list, messages etc. Nothing that works as well as the 360's central guide button with access to everything from one place, or the excellently laid out Marketplace.

But no, it isn't bad. It just feels as though I'm playing slightly fuzzier versions of the same games that I have to have the pain of installing in the first place. Also, although trivial, the analogue bottom shoulder buttons of the PS3 pad are, in my opinion, a joke compared to the wonderfully balanced triggers of the 360 pad.
oh man, now you're really starting to get me thinking. Maybe 360 IS the better of the two.

Rep + 1 for your input, though it's scaring me. I wouldn't want to give up a 360 and everything that was worth 1000 new for a brand new PS3 that is like you say it is.

AHHHH!

But you are better off selling it for cash, EB will rip you off and will not get much worth from them.
Sounds like I'm better off building a new rig than trying to get into console gaming. Rep + for the suggestions.

I still have no idea what to sell it all for. I'm thinking i'll get a Futureshop quote for a brand new system and all my stuff including taxes and then deduct 33 - 40 percent off.

Either that or maybe i'll keep it. I'm so flustered. I do like the 360, but I don't come home from work everyday dying to play it. I prefer computer gaming over console gaming. :S So confusing

Thanks for the rep
It would be good if we could get someone to respond on here that has tried them both (at some length, to give a balanced outlook) and has ultimately preferred the PS3 and their reasons why. The only game I've played that has been / looked genuinely better on the system and actually made somewhat of a difference would be Oblivion, but that has nothing to do with the hardware... It has everything to do with a 12 month gap between releases where things such as the distant landscape being displayed in higher resolution have had the time to have been worked on. I know you probably have but it might be a good idea while you're on to cruise the web and try to find some unbiased comparison reviews from various gaming sites such as Gamespot, Games Radar etc... But of course some sites like to blow things out of proportion and you have to take some of what they say with a pinch of salt.

yeah. I guess another idea would be to simply try it out... and if i don't like it, sell it/return it.

I dunno. I guess I'm just looking for something new (and something other than the 360). I have a Wii as well, and I love it. But it's used as a console for when the GF and I are at our other apartment.

Or I could just sell the 360 and invest into a secondary rig. Ahhh, decisions, decisions.

apparently they are currently buying original xbox's for 10 bucks used, and then relisting them for 39.99 for people looking to buy the console.

Ha, what a scam!

So I listed it for 785.00 dollars

What do you guys think? Fair Price?

Brand new including taxes comes out to 1150.00 bucks.

I think it's a steal!
