I'll go ahead and say it; The Xbox 360 is my favorite console so far.
Yeah, it has won my heart. This big chunk of plastic has made me the happiest man in the world and I am going to marry it come high noon. You are all invited but you have to do one thing. No, not bring gifts but you have to admit something. Admit to me and all of DToid your favorite console.
And I don't want any wars on my page. Uh-uh I ain't having it.
What I do want is a story of why the console you've chosen is best for oyu, why you haven't picked the other two, and why you think it is worth a buy.
I shall start:
Long ago in the year 2004 my friend had gotten the Original Xbox for his Bday. Or he sucked a lot of cock to pay for it, I forgot which one. But anyway I would usually go to his house to play his PS2 because I was very bored with my N64. So when I hear he has an Xbox I go over and he pops in Rise of the Imperfects. I beat him with Wolverine while he had Evil Thing. Imagine my surprise when the graphics first show up on screen. A 10 year old with this much graphical achievement in his face is bound to have his mind blown. Plus the controller felt better in my tiny hands and the Menu even looked better when you first boot it up.
Then comes the year where the 360 comes out. I don't get my first 360 'til 2009 but I still kept up on it until then. Reading flamewar after flamewar I decided to do my own investigation until I could afford a console. My other friends had PS3s and 360s out the arce so getting my hands on one was simple. But of course I couldn't keep one. Greedy fools. After a while of begging I was able to do my tests.
Controller: 360 still felt better in design and it feels better between my still tiny hands. 10/10
PS3 felt too easy to break and I like to button mash on Ninja Storm. 9/10
Graphics: I already knew both displayed at 1080P so this was unnecessary to do. Tie
Menu: PS3 was a little more like a computer's start menu. One click takes you into another menu, then another then another. Seems cool for those who have a lot to put on there, but I'm a simple man myself.
360 had well....... a more simple menu. One shuffle got me to where I needed to go.
9/10 (For looking like a folder in a suitcase.)
Games: The games I REALLY wanna play are always multi-platform, but so far the only exclusives I've wanted to play are Crackdown and Fable so I guess the 360 wins. Admittedly I wanted to play inFamous for a while but then [PROTOTYPE] came and shut that game down.
PS3 9/10 (Nice Try) 360 10/10 (Nice Counter)
Hardware: PS3 has more for someone but not for me. I download my High Def movies from the internet. I have my own fast internet browser on my pc and for online play I really don't need it cause I have many gamer friends living around me. So for this I choose 360, but technical wise the PS3 wins for being a little more advanced.
Technical: PS3 10/10 360 8/10
Practical: PS3 5/10 360 9/10
As for the Wii it doesn't have anything to interest me. Yes, Iv'e played it countless times yet the games for it are too soft and the design has no HD backbone to make me want it. I like it, I'm glad it's hear but I'm even gladder I don't own one.
The 360 is worth a buy because 1. It is sexy (well the new version is) 2. It is a hardcore system with hardcore exclusives 3. It brings back childhood memories
So there you go people. The mission is clear. Go forth and explain your love for that console and no trolling.
(This means you Crunshii)
I won't think of you as a fanboy. The point of me doing this was to actually divulge rumors that I was one. So to my people and fellow gamers I give you your mission. And the wedding has been moved to midnight. I'm planning on sleeping past noon and playing threw the night.
(And also I am a little tired so forgive me for any misspellings or if things are not making since. I've spent most of my day in a GED program.) read
