LOL already takes the cost more than a pc without including ridiculously overpriced games that take a year to drop in price
[QUOTE="SPBoss"][QUOTE="04dcarraher"] Of all the people I know that owns a 360 most are on at least their 3rd replacement and or rebuy. While my brother is on his 5th (had to buy the latest one) and one of his friends is on his 6th. BPoole96
I bought my PS3 in 2007 for $500, 14 months later it broke and I sent it back to Sony for a nice $150 charge, 3 weeks later I get a refurbished PS3 with a different HDD, so I lost all of my game saves (my fault for not backing them up I guess). They also did not include my copy of Resistance 2 that was trapped inside of my PS3, so I had to wait another 2 weeks for them to ship me another copy of the game (after speaking with several customer service reps trying to prove that I actually owned the game).
A year later that PS3 broke again so I found another way to get it fixed for $75 but I ended up just buying a Slim model for another $300. I've also had several controllers break which has probably costed me about $200.
Needless to say, console gaming has not been cheap for me this gen.if next gen systems have weak gpu's.. try pc ;) I am not one of those hermits that force things upon people, if you choose to do it then its only to your advantage :)
