xbox 360.

I have been looking around at pre-ordering an Xbox 360. If you goto www.gamestop.com you can preorder it online, and they have package deals. One of the packages is $2000. But it comes with everything. 4 wireless controllers, like 12 games, yadda yadda. Some of those games look badass though.

I wish I could get my Air Force date so I can order one or not. It is supposed to come out on Nov. 14th or Nov 22nd (I have heard both). However, I might be going into the Air Force on Nov. 14th. Don't think I'll be able to play much xbox while at boot camp

I got a new Playstation Mag, they were showing the graphics on the PS3. I am blown away. I almost feel cheated on life I wish I were a kid with this system.. damn it's incredible.

As for XBOX.. I have yet to see a game they are releasing with "mind blowing graphics" Unless you have one for me?

Re: xbox 360.

i got an Xbox, PS2, and gamecube....i play the PS2 personally. Only game that i ever cared about for Xbox was Halo. All the other games I can play on the PS2, which I have not seen enough of a difference in Graphics to "blow my mind" to pick the xbox over PS2. Plus the PS2 has a far superior controller of all the systems. Granted the smaller xbox controllers are better, they still suck. No one will ever compare to the PS2 controller. They did it good.

Re: xbox 360.

And the guy who works at EB Games steps in.

If you ain't got the 360 preordered, you'll be waiting until next year. EB Games is completely out, as a company.. We are 20 over our alotment right now. Get the $400 version, the other one is crap. It costs $100 for the hard drive alone.

Wanna PS3? It hits Japan in spring of '06 and the States and Europe in '07. Yea. And the Revolution, along time away and enjoy your TV remote as a controller.

And hope ya'll enjoy paying $59.99 for your games now.

If I were to pre-order it, would I be able to pick it up at any location?? I'm just worried where I'll be in Nov.

I may just wait until I hear from the Air Force to see if I can get one before hand or not.

Re: xbox 360.

im sure all of them will be good.. as for the nintendo one.. im losing hope and confidence in them. i think one of the concept controllers for it was a remote control shaped thing.. i have no idea what they are thinking if they happen to release that.

Not really, cause the money you preorder with is in the drawer where you preodered at. If you get it online, they're just gonna ship it to you.

Remember this, Walmart *****es!

X2. Besides, I think they'll get a lot more adult oriented games for the revolution. But if for no other reason, I would by a Revolution just for the Legend of Zelda games. I'm addicted, even my halo 2 emblem was the triforce.

thats not bad, i remember buying perfect dark for the N64 and it was 65 bucks. then xbox and ps2 came out and strangely new games didnt top 50 bucks. and seeing how much time goes into these games, 50 bucks is pretty cheap, i wont mind paying 10 more for a insanely badass game.

graphics are nice, but id take great, fun, non repetitive gameplay over insane graphics anyday. kinda the reason GTA3 series is so popular, the gameplay kicks ***, even though the graphics look like theyre on a PS1.

i think ghost recon has some insane looking graphics though. i dont like those team combat games(mostly cause freindlies usually just get in the way) but i think i will be picking it up, along with PD:zero to hold me over till Halo3 comes.

besides, ill go with the console that doesnt lie about its specs. even though its not the console thats going to set them apart, itll be the designers this round.

it's because cd's and dvd's are easier and cheaper to mass produce than cartridge games... i read an article once that said the production cash difference was like 4:1 or 5:1. discs were that much cheaper

and i can agree that nintendo has been a step behind more than once, but they do have some killer games. zelda, mario, and metroid on gamecube.. mario 64, goldeneye, perfect dark on n64, not to mention the wave race games (nintendo STARTED the jetski racing games, waverunner was only ever a pale copy) the pikmin games (SERIOUSLY UNDERRATED) super smash brothers (****ING FUN!) ...nintendo has so much **** that is only on their systems

and i think the new controller could be a hit, it looks like it would be fairly intuitive, point and shoot type action

if i remember correctly, the gamecube actually had the most impressive specs out of the three. processing, memory, graphics, it's just the operating software that pulls it down... i dunno though, i'll have to see if i can find links... i do know that IBM has done the mobo for every nintendo console since the n64, and ATI has done the graphics processor since the n64. and they've been a pretty formidable triumvirate

Re: xbox 360.

The GameCube was an underrated system. Go look at Resident Evil 4 and compare that to the X-Box graphics. Just as good if not better and it doesn't weight 8 pounds! Have you ever tried to move a box of 24 X-Box's, it's not fun.

As far as games go, they are all ports now. It's the "God of Wars" that are gonna set the market apart.

And Halo sucks. It's a straight rip off of Counter Strike, just with aliens instead.

Especially FPS Games, I can't aim with a joystick for the life of me. Give me a mouse ANYDAY and I'll kick your ***.

i find it hard to use the keyboard/mouse.

having forward/reverse and strafe combo on the left stick, and look/point on the right stick, and triggers(cause real guns dont use the enter button) just seems more natural.

i remember my quake1 days with my p100/32mb ram monster of a pc. i hated it cause with a keyboard youd look up, and youd barely flick the W key and it would already be at the ceiling. then that same flick on the X key would only bring the target recticle halfway, and the monster would be kicking your *** the whole time, prolly wondering "wtf is this guy looking at the ceiling for?" and the mouse sucked, well, cause at the time my pc was next to a door and the tracker ball was dirty 24/7. to me, a keyboard/mouse is good for typing anc clicking on pr0n, and thats about it.

Re: xbox 360.

i love the PC for gaming. Ghost Recon is Awesome on the computer. rented it once for the PS2 and took it back the same day. not even the same game. And there is such a wide variety of gaming. I love it...im anxious for the WoW expansion too.

and FPS is even better with the Zboard keyboard
oh look your normal old keyboard
[IMG]
hmm whats this

wow the gaming board

then i got the THX certified 4.1 surround and really nice dual 17" Flat panel LCDs to play on.

still prefer PS2 when it is console gaming though
