Should I get a xbox 360?

I'm thinking about getting the 360, mainly for Gears of War. I'm on the fence, I need to be pushed over the edge. Help convince me to get a 360.

Re: Should I get a xbox 360?

I wanted a 360 for that same reason, well for Halo as well but that Gears of War commercial just had me wanting a 360. My wife ended up getting me a Wii which is no slouch believe me. But if all you need is a "yeah I would take a 360 for Gears of War" then you've got one!

Re: Should I get a xbox 360?

I played gears of war and didnt like it, but to each his own...

honestly the ps3 is a better value... a blue ray dvd player is 700 bucks on its own... and the built in wifi saves you 90 bucks (if you go with the xbox wireless crap they sell) pluss the memory card readers etc...



I like my 360, but I'm getting a ps3 as well... I just got it for madden and it great for that!

Re: Should I get a xbox 360?

I just got the Wii yesterday and it's a bloody workout. I was sweating my balls off from playing Wii Sports. I vote you go get a Wii and get a workout while having fun. Checkout Target.com, they tell you if Wii is available at Target stores near you.

Re: Should I get a xbox 360?

Personally I don't give a crap about blue-ray. I just can't justify paying $600 for the PS3 right now. Plus the PS3 doesn't have Gears.

Re: Should I get a xbox 360?

I don't see how it's worth $600 from a pure gaming standpoint. There's no killer game for that system right now.

Re: Should I get a xbox 360?

How does Gears compare to something like Socom? I'm assuming it blows it out of the water.

I have only played socom on PSP, which it sucked. I have seen some of your post in the past about it. If you like on-line gaming gears is the best.

selling your body to stockbrokers isnt called having connections.

that being said, from a pure FUN standpoint, saden is spot-on. the wii is AWESOMe. you could play wii sports for weeks and not need another single game.
