Just reading an acticle on Joystiq talking about UT3 for the 360 the user mods may not be allowed or you may have to pay for them. 

MS wants to control EVERYTHING on xbox live.  Don't they realize that we may want content created by others? 

That is what made the PC so much fun!

I find the control of Live the problem that when you turn your machine it logs on to live unless you tell it not too. 

"That's probably just because they all have headsets whereas on PS3 they don't!" When you purchased Warhawk for the PS3 it came with a headset so many many people have headsets for the PS3 as I chat with people all the time on Resistance! So that information is incorrect. 

I just hate how little kids frag you and then laugh and make crude comments. 




Thank you, as you have just been Lazered

Again, this is a problem with any online game.  Using it as an excuse against the 360 is just plain weak.  Especially as you can mute players with the press of a single button, or deactivate voice chat altogether.  And again.  Compare the differences in the amount of players between the two games.

Halo 3:  Regularly has 150,000+ people playing at one time.
Warhawk:  The most amount of players online ever at a single time is around 15,000.

Obviously, with more players you have a greater chance of running into douchebags.  But trying to pin them all to a single game or even console?  This thread no longer deserves to be taken seriously.  If it even did in the first place.

I'm happy with my 360. Never had an Xbox, so I have all those old games to get too (and pretty cheap at that).  The wife and I have a rule not to buy a new console until there are 10 must have games for it. Currently the PS3 had 4 for us. We fully expect to own one of those late next year sometime... but for now I'm enjoying the heck out of the 360.

I'm actually starting to play the 360 more than the Wii. I thought it would be the other way around. There are some arcade games I really like. I sort of like the ability to get TV shows and movies though I haven't tried it yet.

Ummm....

A quality RPG? Mass Effect! Lost Oddessy!

A quality shooter? Bioshock! COD4!

A quality puzzle? Marble Blast! Tetris!

And so many more. Hell, I don't even support the Xbox360(Go Nintendo!) and I can bring these up off the top of my head.

It seems to me that if a $500 machine has more functions than just playing a boxed game it becomes more cost efficient and a better value. The unit is HD quality, the picture looks great at 1080p. You can also play your DVD's through it. What's the difference if a good game is an arcade game or a $50 boxed game, if it's fun, it's fun. Poker Smash and Carcassonne have been pretty fun, plus you can play with others if you want. It's becoming a better value to me every week.

Look, if you've determined that you're unhappy with your 360 and you're firm on that position...sell it! If you don't like it, I'm sure someone else will.

However, there are many quality games for the 360. Read a couple of reviews.
They're collectible! Sorta...

Wow, did you just wake up one morning and decide 'Man, this 360 is bugging me, i think i will start a thread about it and promote the PS3 instead!!'

Honestly, how in the hell did you manage to turn a 'Disappointed in 360' thread YOU started, into a 'PS3 >>>>>>>>> 360 Thread' in a matter of what, 5 post?

What 'QUALITY' games do you mean? Please, enlighten me on all the 'QUALITY' games on the PS3, that are released mind you, and I can guarantee that people can come back with an even better game for the 360.

Plus, to your whole 'I dont want arcade games on my 500$ machine' comment'? Yeah, well I dont want to spend an included/extra 150$ for a Blu-Ray player on my gaming console.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

it's all down to personal opinion at the end of the day.

quoted for truth
i for one wil never get a PS3 because in my opinion i can get games that are just as good on my 360
                                                      ^MORAL OF POST^

and i agree both consoles offer great quality games so in the end this all come down to your opinion and fanboyism
and you arent just paying for the arcade games, your paying for other great games as well (halo, bioshock, mass effect, COD4) but as i said before this is just my opinion if you dont like it, dont play it, simple as that

Now I feel sorry for all the people who bought the HD DVD addon as it is a dead format!
