My take on the XBOX 360.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I FINALLY saw an XBOX 360, I went down to Bestbuy to buy need for speed most wanted(PS2) and there it was, with a demo of Call of duty 2, I have to admit, the graphics aren't the best, but better than XBOX's or PS2's. And yes, the 299$ Core system won't be able to play ALL of the original XBOX games, but the 399$ will. How do I know this? Well it says it in the brouchure. I also asked the bestbut guy if they were going to be in stock, he said, they expect to be out of stock in 5HRS. after it's initial release, but he also said, they will be in-stock soon since they order every Friday

Yeah, I just went to Circuit City today and played the COD demo on it. I have to say (on the LCD screen) it looked pretty sweet, but less than I had expected. My take: Stick with the PC.

yeah, I'd stick with a PC for the moment, I'm sure developers will make games look better, but I still want an XBOX 360, lol.

Just you wait. Games always tend to look like current gen when new consoles are released, but later when game developpers will know how to use all the power a console as the offer, it will look a lot better than right now.

360 is better, I wouldn't go out and buy a 400$ or w/e it's BIG pricetag graphics card when I can get a 360 for less.
