    Default Xbox 360

    I'm thinking about getting my lad (honest..it's for him) an Xbox 360 for xmas.

    There's some good deals at the mo. I know a lot of you have got one. Are they reliable and what are your views in general.

    In short....are they worth the money.

    indeed they are.. and they're quite cheap now compared to launch...

    The one's in my family have all been 100% reliable so far...unlike the old x-box..

    Just make sure you can get it online..it's much more fun gaming around the world..

    Depending on his age, he'll spend all his life on there..

    It's great fun, specially on an HDTV (just got a 50" plasma couple of weeks ago) my only criticism is it can be a bit noisy with the fan and disc drive running. Probably too noisy for a bedroom, might be better in your living room.....?

    is he an xbox or playstation fan?

    playstation 3 is out in a couple of months (march) -i know im resisting the 360 and holding out til then.

    wouldnt want you to have to pay out again in a couple of months if he gets a sniff of the PS3 if you get my drift!

    Only prob is PS3 is having problems.. it's not supposed to have the blueray anymore and it's not receiving rave reveiws from over in the states..It will still cost far more than the current 360 deals being offered, so as it's for your lad P, I'd still go 360..

    I've read some poor reviews for the PS3. The graphics are no better or worse than the 360.

    I'm sure it will be a good machine in time, but the significant extra cost means a 360 is better value at the mo. You can get a premium system, with four games, an extra controller and some 'live' stuff for £330.

    Only sticking point at the minute is when I mentioned it to the missus I got the death stare!!

    Having just paid out nearly nine grand on a conservatory, (exit stage left my Alfa Brera!) she thinks I'm being a little extravagant. (she didn't quite use those words )

    But hey, you only live once (as all the homeless people say )

    Just got rid of mine on Flea bay £271.00 for Xbox 3 games, Wireless Adaptor , 20g hard drive.

    I must say they are well worth the money. The graphics on the HD games on a HD TV perform very well.

    Good about Xbox 360 and wireless is you could stream music,photos,films from your computer to your tv through the xbox.

    Xbox Live is good and some of the gaming communities are fun.

    PS3 is getting poor reviews and will be probably less compatable with other hardware you have cos Bill Gates will have the this sewn up or be charinging Sony an earth for the licences

    Go for it...Gears of War, Ghost Recon , Test Drive Unlimted , Call of Duty 3 , are the best games I've played..
