    Well it really depends on what you're interested in. With an Xbox 360 you've got a handful of game options - Xbox, Xbox 360, and the Xbox Live Arcade. Try doing a little more research on titles. What are you basically looking for?

    i thought about getting a 360 too, but then i decided it wasnt worth it (for me) xbox has been having alot of broken 360's and have even spent over $1.15 billion fixing them

    to me the risk of getting a broken 1 isnt worth it, and besides wii games are cheaper so u could get more wii games than 360 games

    and about the online gaming..... if u just give nintendo a little faith, itll pay off

    i just want to know what 30 wii games youre looking forward to.

    spending $1.15 billion fixing them is a good thing, it shows the company is dedicated
    also you have a 3 year warranty, which gives plenty of time to find out if yours will let loose a little down the line
    already gave nintendo faith, we thought 1 friend code per system was awesome, then mario strikers comes around and you have a friend code per game now, its going to be just like DS, mute and basic.

    well not 30, but u could get gc games like wind waker, there are alot of good wii games coming too, and by next year, all the 3rd parties will start making games good again, and then theres always vc games.....

    there are alot of games u could get for the price of a 360

    I had a 360...it was awesome. Until the red-ring of death. But it was almost guaranteed to have the ring, because mine was among the very first to be released. I got it through the Mountain Dew giveaway, before the official release date.

    So, since it was free it's not THAT big of a deal. I'm going to shell out for the elite system now that they SEEM (key word) to have ironed out most of what was causing that damned ring. And i will once again be able to lavish myself in the glorious Xbox games I have. I'll finally be able to finish Gears of War. The stupid ring came right while i was in the middle of the game, I bet it had never happened up until that point because I hadn't really played a game on the system to really push the hardware like that yet. Ah, se la vi. I will get another.

    I'm sorry, but it's going to be pretty difficult for Nintendo to top the Xbox Live / Xbox Marketplace Service.

    I'd definitely recommend a 360. There's some great games out already, and XBLA is worth a look too (if only for Castlevania: Symphony of the Night). Plus Assassin's Creed, GTA 4, Mass Effect, Resident Evil 5 and plenty more promising games are on the way.

    Microsoft have practically set the standard for online console gaming- Nintendo won't top that easily, and I don't think they can at all (One online game in six months! And it's not even a killer app!).

    I was at Walmart the other night looking at games and eying a PS3 and 360, looking to get one or the other atleast in the coming months. Noticed 360 has only a handful of games WITHOUT Live, and most of which have no online usage anyway. It was pretty mindblowing. We must face it, Microsoft defines computers and this leads to the internet where they obviously have loads of pull. It will probably be years before any other parties get their hands on remotely what they have as far as online capability goes. Sony is getting there, but Xbox defines online gaming period (atleast at this point). If online gaming is what people want, 360 is the obvious decision. However, the other consoles have their own respectable pluses and this is what makes them all unique. This is definitely a fun time to be a gamer.

    or microsoft could put that billion dollars into fixing the 360's problems that causes the malfunctions so ppl dont have to deal with customer's service so much and have all that **** to deal with.

    the 360s malfunction rate is 30%. thats unheard of.

    sovieto, just let the kid buy what he wants without your interference for once in your life.

    10-11 games is a lot when you think about it. Most people would buy a console for 1 or 2 games, but if you are really into the wii games I recommend you save up your money to buy the games that you really want. As far as 360 games go, I would say Gears of War, Dear or Alive 4, Overlord, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and up and coming games like Halo 3, Bioshock, and Naruto: Rise of a Ninja, and Halo Wars

    I'm sure they are trying to fix them too, but a lot of people would be pissed if they just came out with a new one without problems and didn't do anything for the people that already have them.

    he was merely wondering if he wanted to buy a 360, i gave him a list of games he could check out.
    30% is unconfirmed, microsoft hasnt given any real percentile
    and they already put billions of dollars into fixing them, and are, with a 3 year warranty.
    sorry but your post is meaningless. it dosent help the main poster at all.

    as for the main poster, RE5 is expected sometime in 2009.

    dood don't be turned off by the red light thing. You see if you get one now it will cover u till the next xbox comes out (supposing it has a 5 year life cycle).
