Should I buy an XBox? 2007-08-26 13:31:51 Reply

I ask the question, should I buy an XBox? Note, not a 360. I'm not paying $400 so my hardware can fail on me. These are the comments the seller left on Amazon(copy &pasted):

"Comes complete with console, power and AV cords, 3 standard controllers, and 2 wireless controllers. Does not freeze plays perfectly"

This is the list I'm looking at, the certain console is the tenth(10th) one down.

What do you think?

Ehh $100 isn't really worth it. You might as well buy a 360 so you can just play most xbox games.

Goddammit, read the third sentance. Besides, the one I'm getting has 5 controllers. Three standard, two regular. Still not worth it?

You must be stupid

Xbox is worth jack shit now
If you want a xbox for Live good luck trying to find someone because the only xbox games people play online is halo 2

and if your trying to find a good xbox game

I don't know which one besides halo again

so basically go with a xbox 360

I don't see the point in owning 5 controllers.
I own an Xbox, it has some good games and all, but it's not the greatest. You should try softmodding it if you get it, that way you can play ROMS and videos and a bunch of other shit.

Oh yeah, because all 360's instantly break.


There is a war going on in you're mind. People and ideas all competing for you're thoughts. And if you're thinking, you're winning.

Thats how companies bullshit us.

The only games they make are crappy TV show and movie based-games, just get a next-gen console, and if the 360 breaks down(It's not that likely it will), get send it to Microsoft the get it fixed.
