I work hard, make good enough money to buy a xbox, ps3, gaming pc (built myself) and Wii. I am not bragging - but I do want you all to know I am still very serious about my what I can spend my money on.
On that - I could give a rats ass what system does this or that - plays blu ray, hd dvd, or wii, which i think plays an eight track cassette, though poorly. I and all of the others friends I game with also do not care if it is motion controlled, or camera or whatever.
We JUST CARE ABOUT THE GAME, THE GAME PERIOD. no really just the GAME.
hey did I mention the GAME?
I buy a console based on the game or games it will play on.
On that note- I mostly play on the xbox 360, then ps3, then pc, then wii and alot of hours on the psone still yet. This generation games like Lost Odyssey, Mass Effect, Gears, Bioshock, Assassin, etc have kept me more interested in the 360.
Every xbox 360 that was bought early on got RROD eventually, but MS fixed and replaced them all in a timely manner with no further problems. XBL does have alot to do with it, COD MW series is alot of fun with a gun.
Yes my ps3 has seen alot of hours logged onto it, FF13, uncharted, ... I am sure there were many more game i played on it but can't remember them: oh yeah FF7, Saiyuki, FFT. Also a billion blu rays movies.
The Wii - well the kids play it more then me, but I do have a couple of RPGs planned. Oh who am i kidding the Wii sucked - besides some 1rst party games (which were not that awesome) it collected dust. Tried some old downloadable games - but just not the same.
The PC - this generation had tons of awesome games - as more games were made for both console and pc. helped alot. I guess where the xbox developer tools are architecture d toward pc and easier to develop for we got to see alot more crossover games this gen. Steam helped alot also.
Still though the xbox 360 - couch friendly, won more time then any other system. Props to you "lifts glass" xbox 360 well done and here is to an even better new year and new system (long over due).
