I Don't think anyone would disagree that the 360 is poorly made. It's not the first console to have similar problems, or the first time gamers have had to endure such 'hardships' (as most pc gamers will no doubt know). But i'd have a console that does have problems, which the company has recognised and are willing to fix, with one of the best lineup of games and other features over other consoles that have a weaker library of games. (and no i'm not mentioning any one console - I think with the exception of the DC (imo, as is so much in these forums, which perhaps people need to bear in mind) every console falls short of triple A titles compared to the 360).will2097 wrote:It's pathetic. This is why I hate gamers. They can't get their thick-skulls round a comment like: '360 was made with rubbish and used toilet rolls' without assuming the originator of the comment must a Sony plant, and feeling personally insulted. Somewhere in their minds it goes like thisL Erm? Nazi's are evil, but yeah, I never voted Communist. ooh good, well done, cigars all round. Nice job -- missing the point.
The 360 is a very mediocre console, with some very above average games and the PS3 is little better, if, probably, a little worse. That, shockingly, wasn't my point. (aside from the fact my launch day, used everyday, PS3 hasn't broken down catastrophically three times since February 2007) No indeed. The point was that those cheap idiots at Microsoft produced a mediocre console. The 360 was as far as you could push silicon in 2005, in the same way the Jag and the 3Do were as far as you could push silicon in 1993. The SNES and the MD were technologically advanced and they don't fail. The fact remains, my 3DO (used everyday, I promise) has never failed and my 360 used to play PGR4 and AC6 and to occasionally lament modern gaming every so often, failed, like the cheap piece if cr*p that it is. This is not a religious blasphemy.
That was the point. (I will move on to criticizing the PS3 later.)
Although what's apparent is that the problem is not Xbots or indeed SonyFanboyz it's those that seek to garner support by touting the 'I hate Sony' punch line.
Oh, and reacting with hatred over Microsoft producing a product that may not be top notch? Come on, I think we can all agree that we should of known better before thinking they wouldn't
Also, calling gamers thick skulled idiots is not exactly fairplay is it. You posted a comment - we responded. If you didn't want people who don't think the 360 is the spawn of the devil to respond then don't post it in a public forum. Of course, there could have been an element of sarcasm in the post, and if so, I reply with a big
