A friend of mine got the red ring of death on her Xbox. So she sent it in and went out and bought another while she waited for her Xbox to come back. New one had the red ring too. lol. So she took it back to the store and the clerk sheepishly exchanged it for her. The retard knew it was busted. I'd get into what an a$$hole this moron is, but it's pretty clear. Anyway. So now she's got a 360 that works, but she's still miffed and we were having an argument about her going to PS3. So we took the vote to our other friends and it's pretty even. Both systems have big drawbacks and both systems rock. So. I ask it of TFF....which video game system is better? Don't move this either. It's a debate that has financial implications. Get lost with the over-zealous moderating. My contention is that Xbox has carved out a niche created by having a superior system in the original xbox AND it had a hard drive. Move onto PS3 and Sony has wisely added a hard drive AND they one upped Microsoft by having a Blue-Ray drive so people can watching 1080p movies in 7.1 surround. That almost convinced me to get a PS3 too...but Microsoft got me early with the Xbox and Sony hates me. Add to this the extra memory and wireless controllers that actually work and don't eat batteries like a fat kid at the buffet line....and I was pretty sold on the 360 right from the start. Red ring of death or not. That being said, if my Xbox fried...I'm not sure if I would go PS3 or not. The blue-ray drive is a real selling point and they fixed the controller issue....plus you can use damn near any bluetooth earpiece for a mic. Tough one. I hope it doesn't boil down to fanboys. I'd like some serious input or thoughts.
