I thought it was a bad purchase on my part, but then again, I only play JRPGs on consoles, which the 360 was lacking in... Btw, buy the FPS stuff in my thread.

Anyway, it depends on what games you'll be playing though.

Yeah I'd say just stay with us on the PC. Did you know there is a market for used xbox's with RRoD. I just sold an old red ringed xbox on ebay for $30 + $10 shipping. Started the bidding at .99 cents too and they fought over it.

Get an xbox.

Playing with real-life friends > a little bit better graphics and playing by yourself

I have WAY more fun playing games on my PC I recently setup Eyefinity, better graphics, I don't have to deal with all fee of XBL, and all the annoyance of playing games in XBL. Just that a lot of my friend's aren't into PC Gaming, or don't want to pay the money to buy a PC considering you can get a $200 Console and never look back.

It sounds like I should just buy a Xbox, it's just playing BFBC2, and everything else on the Xbox and PC is night and day considering that I've Re-brought most if not all of the games I played on my Xbox 360. It's like I know the difference and the grass if MUCH greener on the PC side when I'm on the Xbox.

Sigh I guess you guy's are right it is more fun talking to real friends and coordinating in games or Racing with each other and etc. It's like an invisible force is telling me not to do it...

Edit: My old Cables + Power Brick will work with the new 4GB Slim? If so I see someone selling the 4GB console only for cheaper, or should I just stop being cheap.

Really? I'd rather play by myself since I usually buy SP games. XD

*Hint*I'm selling a basically new BC2 Ult. Edition for $35+shipping.*Hint*

Btw, I think they changed the port for the output cables and power cable.
