i caved: my xbox 360 review

so, as every one who knows me personally knows (which, sadly, is no one on this website), i'm a little bit of a sony fanboy. which is weird, because i've never owned a PS2, but an xbox instead. anyways, i've always considered the PS1 to be my fav console, and i LOVE LOVE FUCKING LOVE my PS3. i never owned a 360, due to the fact i didnt wanna pay for online, i was terrified of the rrod, blah blah blah, go to gamespot and read what the sony fanboys have to say about the 360, and thats it. anyways, i've wanted a 360 for a good long while now, thanks to gears of war, mass effect, and left4dead, along with sneak king and pocketbike racer (i kid, but i do own). so, i got five hundred dollars from the tax return that i could spend on anything i wanted, so BAM! 360 it was. here's what i think of it.

CONS: lets get these out of the way first. paying for online. nope, dumb. i know this may just be mine, but, no joke, my disc tray fucks up for no reason. i can play downloaded games no prob, but sometimes, its wont read the disc based games, and i cant play them. i hate the NXE layout. and the d-pad. yup, thats basically it.

PROS: the online, that i'm paying for. look, i never had a problem with PSN. i play games, it works, i have friends, all the basics are covered. now i am familiar with a little something known as the party system. wow. fuckin sweet. WHY CANT THE PSN PATCH THAT IN? um, i love the feel of the controller, its comfy, aside from the d-pad, which feels like the head of a camels dick. jesus, fuckin XBLA is SO fuckin sweet. i got this bitch a week ago, already dropped over a hundred on the XBLA games and DLC alone. i like the achievement system a lot more then trophies, because achievements actually work.

god, im such a drunken mess right now, i cant even get correct punctuation all the time. either way, i love this fuckin thing, even though it doesnt work sometimes, its worth the 300 (i got the pro). either way, if anyone wants to play some video games, my gamertag AND PSN is SamBasinger. which is my name. because i'm clever. please add me, i hate play left4dead with people who dont know what the fuck they're doing.
