So, seeing as I have an long summer ahead of me, I'ce decided I'm going to buy an Xbox. But seeing as I don't actually know that much about them, I thought I'd ask the pits advice:

Seeing as the new Xbox Slimline is coming out next month :http://www.amazon.co.uk/Xbox-360-250GB-Hard-Drive/dp/B003NSBMF8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1277412717&sr=8-2

are the new additions worth waiting for, or should I Just get an ordinary Xbox?

I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

Get a PS3 instead, mostly the same games with free online, better graphics, and bluray. And I wouldn't trust a "new xbox" to not crap out.

Get an Elite.

Slimline is basically that, but without a removable hard drive and full of failure.

"Better graphics." ... Very arguable. Besides, I'm sure he's compared the PS3 and 360 prior to this, and landed on the Xbox for a reason.


Also, I've had my 360 since launch, I play it regularly, and it Red Ring'd one time, under warranty. Plus, Xbox 360s are covered under a 3-year RRoD warranty, so... I'm sure you'll be fine.

I dunno... When I had an Xbox it crapped out on me and I got sick of it and switched over. Ya I know people say you shouldn't play it all the time, but you should be able to play it whenever the hell you want. Basically an xbox is a computer. I leave my computer on 24/7 and it's not broken. If you left on your xbox for that long it would burst into a ****ing inferno and destroy half your neighborhood.

basically this.

even the new xbox is still years behind the ps3. not to mention that new games like Medal of Honor and Dead Space 2 will have better graphics than the xbox. This is just the first to come.

ofcourse if you for some reason dont want a ps3 go for the new slimline

Ive had both the xbox and the ps3, and I'd prefer the xbox anyday.

I'd say wait for the new one though, it looks like it'll be worth the wait.

I'd love to know where you guys are getting your information... Where is there any evidence that MoH and Dead Space 2 will have better graphics on the PS3?

Honestly I bought the MW2 edition X box. It's good, but get a PS3.

They are the exact same except PS3 is free online and has a blu ray player. I don't think X Box holds one advantage over PS3.

that new xbox looks like a f*cked up shiny bowtie.

PS3 > 360. Seriously, after playing both for a fair amount of time I can't say there's a single thing about 360 that actually beats PS3; there are some areas where they're equal, in everything else the latter wins.
I'd assume the only reason for not buying a PS3 is the cost, in which case go for the cheapest variety of XBox and see where your prudence gets you

Naw.

TS - get the elite if it's cheaper. I doubt you'll see a huge difference between the two.

I thought the Pit was better than this.

It's a games console. They all are practically the same power-wise. Get a f*cking life.

BTW - I play 360 because my friends all play 360. I guess you fanboys don't have any.

If you're getting an Xbox, have you thought about where you are connecting to Xbox Live? If your router is far from where you would put your Xbox, get the Slimline for the Wifi. If it isn't that far, just get an Elite and buy an Ethernet cable with the money saved.

but it is years behind. It took them what 4 years to come with an inbuilt wifi? not to mention the controller requires batteries by default, they use a DVD drive which has limited space for modern games meaning you have to use 3 disks. It has memory card slots which I guess serves the purpose of transporting your gamer tag to other xboxes. Oh yeah and if you move the xbox while its running it can severly **** up.

How is not having built in wifi behind? You imply by saying behind it doesn't have wifi of any form. And anyway who uses wifi for a console? It sucks.

Whats wrong with a DVD? Its cheaper and clearly hold all the latest games. And the 3 disk thing, yeah one game

Why would you be moving your xbox will it is running anyway? Thats just idiotic.

Stop. You are ignorant and are ranting based on fanboy propaganda by Sony and other fanboys. This is why the pit can't have a decent thread about games - they all get closed because of stuff like this.

Also - try shaking your computer while it's running and see what happens - it's a hard drive thing.

I think you're missing the point of this thread.

TS said he's buying a new Xbox, not a new console.
