Amazon XBOX 360 review - Page 2

post #11 of 21
I looked at the specs on a site(forgot which one), but I saw that the 360 process was a tripple core 3.2ghz. I found it hard to believe as well. SO you guys are saying these are all lies? Can they do that, make up false info?

It may have triple cores at 3.2 ghz, but its about optimization and what the processor can do on computer tasks. I doubt it could stand up to a X2.

Still to manufacturer such a chip seems expensive, since it is not common in the current day and age. And I don't understand why people are into consoles still. In the past they were seperate machines when comapred to computers, but now they seem to be one and the same. Both have optical drives, hardrives, USB ports, play music, movies and games, have ethernet ports etc.

Though consoles in the past used chips and were like very pared down computers they just felt conceptually different.

Well an xbox 360 game goes around $60.00 and an average pc game can be found for $39.99. Just that alone makes me a pc gamer knowing that the software maker does not have to pay a license fee to xbox. So quake 4 for xbox may be the same as on the pc but quake 4 can be found for $30.00 on the pc and its $60.00 on the xbox. Also bugs in pc games can be fixed with a simple download of a patch unlike consoles. Another factor is that you dont need to worry about compatibility as a pc game from 1999 will run on a 2005 computer. No need to buy memory cards and pay fees to play online for most pc games (exclude mmorpgs). Finally a PC game can be customized to your settings the way you choose not the way the console company tells you. Stick with PC for these reasons alone.

I currently have a tualatin 1GHz P3 system downstairs with a Geforce FX 1000 videocard. It runs CoD 2 exactly the same as the Xbox 360.

"Bbbbuuttut it says triple core 3.2GHz!!!"

Come on, how many times do we have to go over this? The XBox 360 is trash compared to computers. 3.2GHz triple core, yeah, triple core WHAT? What technology? Core size? Cache? FSB? How it stands up to Intel/AMD? Those specs are pretty much non-existant. It was also smart(sneaky) of Microsoft to put an unknown technology inside the 360 to fool computer users, just another thing to bring on topic.

See, with PS2, you get reasonable performance and a better selection of games. Unless you're into high-end shooters or sports games, then the PS2 completely owns the XBOX series. I saw screens of PGR3, and the graphics suck in my opinion when compared to Gran Turismo 4 (greatest racer for the PS2 ever in my opinion). Besides, PS2 is only $150 as opposed to the 360's price of $300 for absolutely nothing except the system.

PS2's also at its max that it can produce. And there arnt too many games that stress the Xbox360 hardware too much, or just plain are coded crappily. Give the Xbox360 a year to mature and you can expect console makers to get a little more adventurous with the capabilities they have. And buying a PS2 now is a waste; its games are conna be cut off reeaal soon with the PS3 supposedly nearing release.

Hmm....
I agree and disagree.

Agree Because
The XBOX 360 does out-perform any PC out there, currently. I doubt it to be possible to have such smooth running games on such high-end graphics.

Disagree Because
The XBOX 360 is great, but one we have new games that take full advantage of SLI, Dual Core CPU's, 64-bit CPU's, and PC2-1000 (especially on AMD's part, IMO), We will see games running so clean, we wont believe it. We have computers running BF2 on full graphics settings, but it doesn't fully utilize any of the above technologies. Maybe, if there is to be a BF3 (or the next in the series), we might be playing amazing graphics that blow the 360 out of the water. All we need is software that can work best with our hardware.

Yeah, well, it suits me just fine for now. I actually haven't gotten a new game for it since february of last year. If I have a couple of hundred dollars in my pocket come spring, I might buy a PS3, but only if it's backwards compatible (unlike the 360, ha ha ha).
