Say what you will, it doesn't matter if your joybox can cook for you, it will always come down to games.

I like this reader comment in that article....

Currently, XBox360 is the only next-gen console out there, and it has total market dominance for this generation -
So nice to see people can parrot what they are told by commercials. LMAO

Next-Gen?

How is the 360 a next generation console? It has a shiny, sleek new cover, and a faster collection of chips.....not really next gen when you consider A) it still runs on a standard DVD drive, not the HD-DVD that was supposed to be in it, and now, they are downplaying ever having a HD-DVD in the 360. and B) it still uses old school 2.4Ghz wireless technology for it's controllers.

Compared to the PS3 which will run on a Blu-Ray drive, with Blue-tooth wireless.......now THAT'S the next generation of technology.

And "market dominance"?? It's a technicallity, since it "dominates" a market with no competitors. And even with it's sleek design, the whole purpose of which was to sell them in Japan, it still does poorly in that country.


Anyway,

Exactly. I didn't even care about the original Xbox until Steel Battalion was out, and then I got hooked on Halo. Other than that, it was the same collection of game types on the PS2 which I already had.

Skidding around corners sideways may LOOK cool like in the movies, but in the real world, it slows you down. Give me Forza Motorsports or Gran Turismo anyday, leave Prject Gotham to the arcades.

The 360 is an ok console, and has a couple enjoyable games, but no way it is worth more than $199 (with a hard drive), at least, not to me. Especially since It's not 100% backwards compatible, so I would have to keep my regular Xbox anyway.

as for the nextgen thing.. its all about graphics with a console and the graphics are nextgen compaired to the xbox or ps2 as for the games well your wrong about those too and doa 4 is certainly nothing like doa 3 and as for the other games sure they have been around but they are still good games as far as the ghost recon remark i agree its weak in many aspects and who cares about a story.. atleast i dont i get the games to play them online and shoot others piss on the story and the 360 still have a better online enviroment then the pc could ever dream of so yay for bf2 on 360
