Just got Guitar Hero 2 a couple weeks ago, it's a huge hit!

However, is anyone else frustrated that Assassin's Creed has been pushed back by several months, AGAIN? I just created a Thread about it...Ubisoft is BS.

microsoft saved some money initially because they went with an inferior cooling product ... the heat inside causes a high amount of stress on the motherboard which leads to some of the solder connections on the CPU/GPU to crack ..

this issue is fixed now because they have developed a newer design and extended the warranty to 3 years for all xbox360s if they have the red light issue ...

I have a Gamecube.

Me too :D, but i bought PS3 for Christmas

Im still stuck with the PS2 is the 360 worth buying or not?

Not worth it:

1: PS3 is better
2: If your 360 crashes (which could most likely happen) everything you have on it ie: save data, is gone)

I'm stuck in a world of confusion and anger. To get a 360, or a PS3. My PS2 has been very great for me these passed few years, but it's time to move on =/

Sounds like someone has a boner for overpaying for a lack of exclusive games and a DVD technology doomed to be obsolete like Betamax.

Oh, and for the record, number 2 is false, I still have all my save data and songs and etc. on my hard drive.

I'd list all the quality exclusives coming out, but this is a 360 thread. Plus, it's quite obvious you have no idea what you're talking about anyhow

anyway, I can't wait till Tuesday as I'll be grabbing Bioshock. Although, i think I might get it for my PC rather then my 360.

1.PS3 at this time is definetly not better as a console as weak as the wii is outselling, when released on the same day.
2.360's dont crash if you buy one from now on, and they never affected your data.
3.360 has far superior games and online.
4.360 has more anticipated exclusives than ps3
5.hd-dvd will eventually win because they have got the license to p0rn

what was the last prediction.....blu-ray i think was given a 96% chance of being the victor. Hell it's already outselling the hd-dvd by a large margin.
And porn is looking at blu-ray now with hd-dvd sales dwindling.

Why you should buy 360 instead of PS3: http://www.usatoday....en-nfl-08_N.htm

EA Sports who makes the NHL games are making the games for the 360 and then transferring them to PS3. The PS3 quality is crap compared to the 360 quality.

1. What do sales have to do with which system is better? All a person should care about is their own enjoyment, not how many Consoles a company sells
2. Only time will tell. Microsoft says it won't, but we'll see
3. Online yes, but this will be re-evaluated when PS3 Home comes out. Who says that the 360 has far superior games? It is a matter of opinion like Music, Books or Movie's. The 360 has more games, but more isn't always better.
4. Excuse me? What? After Halo 3, what big Exclusive has a big hype-o-meter attached to it? Games like Mass Effect will be very good, but do they have a lot of hype outside the hardcore gamer market? Fable 2 has some wide-range hype though. Games like MGS4, GT5, FFXIII, FFXVersusXII, Killzone2, the next Kingdom Hearts game and LittleBigPlanet are all highly anticipated very hyped games/franchises that have a wide appeal.(most due to their history) Outside of Halo 3 and Fable 2, there isn't a whole lot of 360 exclusives that matches the all-around anticipation of some PS3 games.
5. What a terrible argument. Times have changed because of the internet, pornography has nowhere near the importance. But that is irrelevant anyway since Blu-Ray does have pornography.

If the 360 is your system of choice that is fine, I own one as well and enjoy it immensely. But don't fanboy up with "arguments' that have little substance. You shouldn't need to defend your reason to buy a system. It is like beauty, all in the eye of the beholder.

Blu-Ray does have porn. With a google search I found that "Vivid" and "Digital Playground" both support Blu-Ray. (exclusively?) Not to mention all of the Japanese stuff...which some of is just weird

This may sound like a dumb question but how do some of you turn off your 360? Do you pull the plug? The light on the power bar on mine stays on after I turn it off so I pull the plug.

The light on the powerbar always stays on. I think it goes green when the 360 is on, then Amber when it is off.

If you unplug your 360, every time, you lose your date and time stamp on saved games, etc. I do it as little as possible.

So you're supposed to leave it on 24/7? The light is an amber color when it's turned off. I don't want the 360 to waste power and crap and that's why I unplug it.

leaving the 360 on doesn't waste much electricity ... if it was on 24/7 for a month it would cost $2.87 using BC Hydro's $0.0615 kWh charge ...

If its just plugged in.

Im not concerned with the cost of my hydro bill....its just that if I leave it plugged in all the time than it increases the rick of something going wrong like the powerbrick overheating or sumthing.

I believe the Power Brick problem leads to the "One Red Light" or is it Two?
