OK so, today I finally went to my friends house to play with his Xbox 360 (first time I've ever sat down and played one). He has a top of the line setup...60 something inch HD TV and latest surround sound, so naturally I was thinking "sweet, this will blow the pants right off of me!"...How disappointed I was. Now, don't get me wrong, when he popped in Gears of War, the graphics were good. They weren't mind boggling, but they were good. The thing is, I don't understand what all the hype is about it. They have NO effect on the game play at all, and after the first 5 minutes of playing, the graphics effect wore off and I quickly got bored with the game as we played. The whole time, my friend kept saying "dude, aren't these graphics awesome!", and that was the only thing he was focused on. A few days ago, I was wondering if maybe an Xbox 360 would be more enjoyable than my Wii, but now I'm convinced: Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, beats my Wii. It's just plain fun, and personally the graphics look just as good on the Wii as they do on a 360. Anyway, just my two cents worth.
