Wow... Way to go after quality Microsoft.
I just mailed mine in for repair. It was scratching my games. I've only had it six months......There's a reason it's only 199$
Sent mine off twice, the third time I just bought a new one.
If it gets to that point for me I'll probably just get a PS3. By that time the cost should be down, and at least they don't charge for online gaming. I've always thought that was lame.
PS3 costs went down today.
On Amazon.com, you can get:
-A used 40GB for $215
-A new 80GB for $250
-A new 120GB slimline (just released today) for $300
I got mine at Best Buy with a renewable Geek Squad warranty... smooth sailing for me.
The problem that some of you might be having is that you dont give your XBox the proper attention it needs...I find that if you just show your XBox that you really love it..most of the problems would disappear
TODAY IS NATIONAL LOVE YOUR XBOX DAY!!
Enjoy using that warranty to keep replacing it, and paying for services that are free on other systems!
Meanwhile, did I mention that I'm using the same PS3 that I bought on opening day almost three years ago, and still haven't had any issues with it?
my Xbox 360 only took a shit once, and it was 4 years after I bought it, a first generation xbox, the ones that were destined to fail eventually.
I seriously think the main reason for the box taking a shit is just over-heating, and improper ventilation.
There is usually only 2 games at a time that I play for over a couple hours at any given time. Usually Madden, and whatever 1st person shooter im playing at the time.
What I do is install Madden and Call of Duty on my hard-drive, and play off the XboX harddrive.... My xbox is quiet and doesnt heat up when I do this. Even after a couple hours of use.
Only thing that PS3 has thats better than Xbox is the BluRay.
you cant beat XboxLIVE, especially now since it has Netflix, plus, you can download Xbox classic games to your HDD.
Paying for Xbox live blows, but its hella worth it over PS network.
Yeah, I agree with all your points. I honestly think that the major problems that both systems have are at least 75% user error. I have friends who have gone through multiple PS3's because they'll just pause a game and leave it for 12-15 hours at a time, and then wonder why the Blu-Ray drive burns out.
Honestly, except for XBoxLive, the systems, at this point, are pretty even (XBox has more games and features, PS3 has better technology and graphics), but since I hardly play online, I think it's a complete waste of money to pay for the service.
By the way, PSN has the classic PS games for DL too. Netflix is the only thing that I want that they don't have already.
